The Competitive Growth of BiOI and BiSI in the Solvothermal Process
BiOI nanolamellas and BiSI nanowires were synthesized using Bi(NO3)3·5H2O, (NH2)2CS and I2 as reactants in the solvothermal process with ethanol as the system media. The as-prepared samples were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electronic microscopy (SEM), Energy-Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer (EDS). The competitive growth of BiOI and BiSI were investigated by changing the quantity of (NH2)2CS. A possible reaction mechanism was proposed.
