Biomolecule-Assisted Synthesis of Ribbon-Like Sb2S3 Nanostructure
L-Cystine was successfully used as a novel kind of sulfur source to synthesize the nanostructure of ribbon-like Sb2S3. The nanoribbons were usually tens of micronmeters in length, typically 100-300 nm in width. The nanostructure of ribbon-like Sb2S3 were examined using diverse techniques including X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), selected-area electron diffraction, and high-resolution TEM.
