Phosphomolybdate nanorods were synthesized using dodecyl pyridinium cations as structure directing agent. Composition and morphology of the nanorods were established by powder X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray analysis, fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Effect of synthetic variables such as pH and nature of templating agent on structure and morphology of the nanorods under ambient condition is discussed.
