This study reports the formation of uniformly distributed molybdenum oxide (MoOx) nanocubes on the Mo substrate by anodization. The electrolyte contains 1 M KOH, 0.4 M NH4F and 10:1 of Ethylene Glycol (EG) and D ionized (DI) water. The Mo samples anodized for 2, 5, 7min with graphite as counter electrode in the presence of 12V respectively. The uniformly distributed cubic morphology on the surface of molybdenum is revealed by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The anodization time directly controls the size of the nanocubes, increasing anodic time directly growth the nanocubes size.

Keywords: Molybdenum oxide nanocubes; Anodization; KOH and NH4F electrolyte; Anodization time
