Fabrication of Se Nanowires from SNSE using Chemical Transformation Method
Se nanorods with ~50 nm diameter are fabricated from SnSe bulk crystals via hydrothermal transformation
procedure in oxalic acid solution, and the reaction mechanism for the chemical transformation is suggested. The oxalic acid
and SnSe particle are reacted and then generated numerous Se nuclei, which crystallized into Se nanorods due to theintrinsic
character of one-dimensional (1D) growth of Se.
