Abstract

Urchinlike nanostructure of well-defined Sb 2S 3 crystals of 3-4 μm in length and 30-150 nm in diameter oriented along [001] direction have been produced at a mild reaction temperature of 90 °C from SbCl 3 and S-methyl 3-phenyldithiocarbazate [C 6H 5NHNHC(S)SMe] in ethylene glycol medium. During the reaction, the amorphous Sb 2S 3 spheres of 1.4 μm in diameter were formed at early reaction stage and then crystalline nanorods were continuously grown at the surface of Sb 2S 3 spheres while transforming their morphology into urchinlike structure. The urchinlike Sb 2S 3 was composed of single-crystalline Sb 2S 3 nanorods, belong to the orthorhombic phase with cell parameters a = 11.307 Å, b = 11.278 Å, c = 3.847 Å and absorbed the light up to 750 nm-wavelength region. The urchinlike Sb 2S 3 architecture was applied to the photoelectrochemical cell.
