Abstract

Hexagonal wurtzite (HWZ) ZnS nanorods were formed in specimens with a S/Zn ratio of 1.3, synthesized at temperatures ≥200. °C in a solution containing 80. vol% water and 20. vol% of ethylenediamine (EN). In contrast, HWZ ZnS nanoparticles were formed in specimens synthesized at temperatures lower than 200. °C. Also, cubic zinc blende (CZB) ZnS nanoparticles were formed in specimen synthesized in water. The absorption peak for the HWZ nanorods and CZB ZnS nanoparticles was at wavelength of 325. nm and 339. nm, respectively, indicating that the band gap energy of the former is larger than that of the latter. Moreover, the HWZ ZnS exhibited two emission peaks at 474. nm and 580. nm. The peak at 474. nm is attributed to Zn vacancies but the origin of the peak at 580. nm remains undetermined. Since the intensity of the emission peak at 580. nm was significantly higher for the HWZ nanoparticles than for nanorods, this peak might be associated with defects in the HWZ ZnS nanoparticles.
