Nanotechnology is in continuous evolution leading to production of quasi‐one dimensional (Q1D) structures in a variety of morphologies: nanowires, nanotubes, nanobelts, nanorods, nanorings, hierarchical structures. In particular, metal oxides represent an appealing category of materials with properties from metals to semiconductors and covering practically all aspects of material science and physics in areas including superconductivity and magnetism. MOX nanowires are crystalline structures with well‐defined surface terminations, chemical composition and almost dislocation and defect free. Due to their nanosized dimensions, they can exhibit properties significantly different from their coarse‐grained polycrystalline counterpart. The increase in the specific surface causes an enhancement of the surface related properties, such as catalytic activity or surface adsorption, key properties for solid‐state gas sensors …
