Researchers from China have recently described the controlled synthesis of ZnS nanowire bundles and nanorod arrays though directly etching zinc wafer at mild temperature. Unique yellow photoluminescence emissions of the as-obtained ZnS nanostructures were observed. The as-synthesized ZnS nanorod arrays possess good superhydrophobicity making the nanostructures  excellent candidates for optics and biomimetics.
