Findings from Yanshan University in the Area of Nanowires Reported (Fabrication of ZnS nanocircles using Escherichia coli DNA as templates)

September 9, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- A new study on Nanowires is now available. According to news reporting out of Qinhuangdao, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "The circular shaped ZnS nanowires were synthesized using genome DNA of Escherichia coil as templates for the first time. The morphology and structure of the products have been characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS)."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Yanshan University, "Cubic sphalerite structure of ZnS nanowires was established by X-ray diffraction (XRD) characterization. The optical properties of the obtained ZnS nanocircles were investigated by Ultraviolet-visible (UV-vis) absorption and photoluminescence (PL) spectra."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The possible growth mechanism of the nano-ZnS is briefly discussed."
