Single-source molecular precursors were used to synthesize II-VI compound semiconductor nanowires for the first time. Cadmium sulfide and zinc sulfide nanowires were prepared using cadmium diethyldithiocarbamate, Cd(S2CNEt2)2, and zinc diethyldithiocarbamate, Zn(S2CNEt2)2, respectively, as precursors in a gold nanocluster-catalyzed vapor-liquid-solid growth… CONTINUE READING
