Colloidal synthesis of kinked ultrathin ZnS nanorods/nanowires with mixed phases using tiny Ag2S nanocrystals as catalysts is reported. It is found that chloride ions can induce the controlled morphology transition from straight to kinking. The synthetic parameters modulating the growth of kinked ZnS nanorods/nanowires are systematically investigated… CONTINUE READING
