Phase and Shape Evolution of CdS Nanocrystallites under Solvothermal Conditions

Abstract:

Article Preview

CdS nanocrystallites with different morphologies have solvothermally prepared with ethylenediamine (en) and glycol as solvents. Solvent-dependent experiments were carried out by adjusting the ratios of en/glycol to investigate the effects of the solvents on the product phase formation and morphology. It was found that the morphology of CdS nanocrystallite develops from a rough spherical nanoparticle to a rod-, twinrod-, and tetrapod-shaped nanoparticle by increasing the ratio of en/glycol, meanwhile the phase composition changes from coexistence of tetragonal zinc blende CdS and hexagonal wurtzite CdS to pure hexagonal wurtzite CdS. Based on the experimental results, a possible shape evolution mechanism of CdS nanocrystallites is simply discussed.
