Structure and Growth Mechanism Study of Wurtzite CdSe Nanorods Grown by Solvothermal Techniques
Abstract:Hexagonal cadmium selenide nanorods 32–170 nm in length and 12–28 nm in diameter were grown by a solvothermal technique by reacting cadmium chloride and selenium powders in ethylenediamine at 140 °C. Using electron microscopy, the shape, size, and crystal structure of the nanorods were determined. A detailed microscopy analysis revealed that the nanorods grow through the coalescence of very small particles or fiberlike structures of the compound. The size, shape and strain structures in the nanorods are defined by their growth mechanism.
