Facile thermolysis synthesis of CuInS2 nanocrystals with tunable anisotropic shape and structure

Author affiliations

Abstract

Monodisperse CuInS2 nanocrystals are produced by injecting mixed metal-oleate precursors into hot organic solvents containing the dissolved sulphur sources. A better understanding of the formation mechanism of CuInS2 has enabled us to tailor anisotropic shapes in the form of triangular-pyramid, circular cone, and bullet-like rods with tunable crystal phases by varying the synthetic conditions.
