A novel and high yield synthesis of CdSe nanowires

Journal Article


Abstract


  • CdSe nanowires (CdSe-NWs) at large scale

    were obtained through a simple and clean method. The

    reaction was carried out without complexing agents which

    often facilitate the preferential nanostructure growth. In

    this work, CdSe-NWs with lineal and zigzag shape around

    40 and 130 nm in diameter with a wurtzite-type structure

    were synthesized. Quantitative EDX analysis indicated the

    stoichiometric formation of CdSe, while both HRTEM and

    HAADF-STEM analysis ruled out the presence of other

    phases such as CdO or nanotubes formation, respectively.

    Diameter and length of the nanowires varied with the

    reaction time and temperature. This synthesis method

    makes the nanostructures purification process easier and

    also is non-toxic and its high conversion make it an efficient

    method for obtaining CdSe-NWs.
