Studies by L.L. Chai and Co-Authors Describe New Findings in Materials Science

May 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- A new study on Materials Science is now available. According to news reporting out of Fuyang, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "Wurtzite ZnS complex spheres with high hierarchy can be synthesized easily by a mild solvothermal route in a mixed solvent of hydrazine hydrate and acetic acid at low temperature (110 degrees C). The ZnS complex spheres are assembled with branched nanorods, creating a novel structure with high hierarchy."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "The diameter of the trunks is about 10 nm, and the branches have an average diameter of about 6 nm. The ZnS complex spheres were found to display a strong blue-shift of 28 nm relative to that of bulk wurtzite ZnS. Time-dependent experiments were performed."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Based on the experimental results, the phase transformation and shape evolution processes were discussed."
