Solvothermal Synthesis of Mn-Doped CdS Nanorods Using Single-Source Molecular Precursors
The synthesis of hexagonal phase Mn-doped CdS (Cd1-xMnxS) nanorods was achieved by solvothermal treatment of a class of easily obtained, air-stable single-source molecular precursors (cadmium manganese diethyldithiocarbamates, Cd1-xMnx-(DDTC)2) in ethylenediamine at 180 °C for 12 h. The structures and compositions of the as-synthesized products were characterized by X-ray diffraction, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy.
