Abstract

Copper sulphide materials have received great attention due to their low bandgap semiconducting properties. As compared to other chalcogenides, few synthetic examples have been reported, and a simple and scalable synthetic method for preparing size- and shape-controlled copper sulphide nanoparticles is required for potential wide application of these materials. Herein, a facile one pot scalable synthetic route has been developed for preparing highly monodisperse djurleite Cu1.94S hexagonal nanoplates. The thermal decomposition of a single precursor CuSCN was found suitable for preparing a large quantity of highly monodisperse Cu1.94S hexagonal nanoplates; a multi-gram scale product could be obtained in a single step. Under the synthetic scheme developed, the width of Cu1.94S nanoplates with a thickness of ~ 10 nm could be easily tuned from 70 nm to 130 nm. Their optical properties were investigated and their photothermal effect was also studied by photothermal optical coherence reflectometry (PT OCR). Cu1.94S hexagonal nanoplates showed a considerable photothermal effect, which was found to depend on the nanoparticle concentration.
