Liquid-phase syntheses and material properties of two-dimensional nanocrystals of rare earth-selenium compound containing planar Se layers: RESe2 nanosheets and RE4O4Se3 nanoplates.


Synthesis of diverse two-dimensional nanostructures with unique material properties is of current interest and multidisciplinary importance but remains a challenge for trivalent rare earth (RE)-selenium (Se) compounds because of the weak affinity between hard rare earth cations and soft selenium anions. In this article, for the first time, we report a mild… (More)
