Ceramic nanofibers can offer useful chemical and physical properties beneficial for energy harvesting and storage applications. Electrospinning is a simple and robust method to produce nanofibers with controlled morphology and diverse compositions. Unique lamellar-like porous nanofibers were synthesized and designated as a selective catalysts for carbon dioxide hydrogenation to liquid fuels. The structure is obtained by reordering of an initially uniform fibers consisting of two metals coordination complexes (Al/Fe(acac)3) and a polymer. A general mechanism for the morphology formation is suggested, where the final structure depends on deformation processes during thermal treatment. The mechanism is realized in other material systems providing the same structure but different functionality. For example, in a system of nickel-based fibers for lithium ion anodes. The relation between morphology and fibers' performance will be discussed. The presented process can yield nanofibers with designed properties that are highly promising for various applications.
