The formation of a novel channel-structured β-AgVo3 in a hydrothermal process without using any template or organic surfactant, was studied. Silver vanadium oxides (SVOs) shows ionic properties and electrochemical performance, which are important for applications in advanced biomedical devices. The synthesis of these materials with controlled size, morphology, and chemical composition can offer opportunities for exploring their novel chemical and physical properties for the fabrication of microdevices. The channel-structured materials were formed by a ripening-splitting crystal-growth process that has its growth direction along the (111) direction. The microstructure of the oxide was investigated using field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM). The influence of reaction temperature, time, and reagent on the structure and morphology of the materials were analyzed using a hydrothermal process. Results show that SVOs can be useful in biomedical applications.
