Abstract

Heterostructured nanoparticles composed of copper sulfide and manganese sulfide were synthesized by using a bottom up, wet-chemical approach. This thermolysis based technique leads to chestnut shapes with a complex structure which is elucidated by using scanning transmission electron microscopy and elemental mapping. The particles semiconducting properties were then studied including electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and Seebeck coefficient. The results reveal insight and challenges in the design and implementation of heterostructured chalcogenide type nanoparticles for semiconducting applications.
