Hot Article: Green synthesis of PbS nanocrystals

In this CrystEngComm Hot Article, Hongzheng Chen and colleagues synthesized uniform PbS nanocrystals using a surfactant-free electrodeposition method.

They investigated the effect of the concentration of Cl ions, deposition time and applied deposition current in tuning the morphology of the crystals.

The authors believe the method could be extended to the shape-controlled synthesis of other semiconductor crystals, especially metal sulfides.
