Surfactant-assisted growth of uniform nanorods of crystalline tellurium

Author affiliations

Abstract

Uniform tellurium single crystal nanorods with diameters of 14 nm and lengths of 300 nm were prepared through reduction of [TeS4]2− by SO32− with use of a suitable surfactant, sodium dodecyl benzenesulfonate (NaDDBS). Te nanorods with various diameters can be prepared by carefully adjusting the concentration of NaDDBS or the initial concentration of TeS42−. The nucleation and growth processes of Te nanorods were interpreted by solid–solution–solid transformation and surfactant-assisted growth mechanism.
