One-step synthesis and assembly of two-dimensional arrays of mercury sulfide nanocrystal aggregates at the air/water interface.


Ordered two-dimensional (2D) arrays of β-HgS nanocrystal aggregates were prepared successfully at the air/water interface through the interfacial reaction between Hg(2+) ions in the subphase and H(2)S in the gaseous phase under the direction of liquid-expanded monolayers of arachidic acid (AA). These 2D arrays are composed of hexagonal or quasi-hexagonal… (More)
