Abstract

A low temperature solution route that may provide advantages in terms of reduced costs and large-scale production for the synthesis and physical properties of the zinc sulfide (ZnS) nanobelts was investigated. The ZnS nanobelts were prepared by a solution-phase method using diethylenetriamine (DETA) as template. It was observed that the water-to-DETA ratio has the influence on the shape, structure, phase evolution, and composition of the products. Increasing the ratio of water in the reaction system results in the formation of a pure wurtzite phase with a shape of spherical flowers made of nanosheets and spheres. Time-dependent XRD patterns and SEM images of the intermediate were taken to understand the formation process of the nanobelts. The route provided an efficient and mild solution method to fabricate uniform semiconductor nanobelts with advantages over traditional high temperature approach.
