Ligand-free ZnS nanoparticles: as easy and green as it gets

Author affiliations

Abstract

The controlled nucleation and crystallization of small pure sphalerite ZnS nanoparticles was achieved under batch and continuous flow conditions at low temperature, in water and without the use of any stabilizing ligand. The obtained nanoparticles displayed a narrow size distribution and high specific surface area. Moreover, the synthesis was suitable to directly obtain stable water-based suspensions and the products were found to be active photocatalysts for the hydrogen evolution reaction.
