Abstract [en]

Hierarchical-like alpha-MnS microspheres have been successfully synthesized via a simple solvothermal route using L-Cystein as both sulfur source and capping agent. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis confirmed that these hierarchical microspheres were made of alpha-phase MnS. Morphological studies performed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) methods showed that the alpha-MnS hierarchical microspheres are obtained from the nanocubes by self-assembly due to the main driving force of the minimization of overall surface energy. It is highly expected this research can provide a useful fundamental understanding of shape-controlled synthesis of the semiconductor material with hierarchical microstructures.
