Rational low temperature synthesis and structural investigations of ultrathin bismuth nanosheets

Abstract

A novel and convenient, template-free synthesis approach based on a low-temperature reduction route has been developed for the fabrication of high-yield ultrathin bismuth nanosheets for the first time by bottom-up self-assembly. Scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy observations of the product show uniform two-dimensional ultrathin nanosheets with high aspect ratios possessing lateral dimension up to several hundred nanometers. Results presented herein suggest a simple route for the large-scale production of ultrathin and flat Bi nanosheets, which may be beneficial to further electronics and as building blocks in catalysts, solar cells, batteries, electronic devices as well assisting as platforms for fundamental studies of physical/chemical properties in two-dimensional systems.
