Ternary vanadate one-dimensional nanomaterials exhibit great application potential in the fields of lithium ion batteries, photocatalysis and electrochemical sensors owing to their good electrochemical and photocatalytic properties. The article reviews the recent progress and patents on the vanadate one-dimensional nanomaterials. The synthesis of the vanadate nanorods, nanobelts and nanotubes by hydrothermal method, template method and room temperature wet chemical process is demonstrated. The application of the vanadate one-dimensional nanomaterials for lithium ion batteries, electrochemical sensors and photocatalysis is discussed. The possible development direction of the vanadate one-dimensional nanomaterials for the synthesis and application is also analyzed.
