Nano- and microscale structures from different metal oxides have got bright future perspective in applications for upcoming advanced technologies. However, the nanoscopic dimensions of these structures often hinder their utilization due to formidable integration challenges: manipulations with them result in modification of their properties. In order to use the nanoscopic material features, nanostructures in appropriate form have to be fabricated, and the need of novel yet simple fabrication technique exists. We propose to meet the challenge with a very new approach, so called flame transport synthesis (FTS) technology, which has got enormous potential in terms of versatile nanostructuring of different metal oxides. The FTS technology offers single step fabrication of freestanding nano- and microscale structures with various complex three-dimensional (3D) shapes that can be directly utilized as such because of their geometries and/or they can be combined to build 3D macroscopic highly porous architectures for advanced applications. These structures can be freely utilized for loading by and sensing of the interesting species like enzymes, DNA, etc. hence offering new possibilities in biosensing and green energy markets. Because of the highly complex geometries understanding of these hybrid nanomaterials at every stage is needed to better tuning the structure-property relation. We will consequently provide detailed structural models, particularly for 3D interconnected networks.
