A study was conducted to investigate the development of a facile,e synthesis of laterally confined two-dimensional (2D) layered SnS2 nanoplates. Laterally confined 2D SnS2 nanoplates were synthesized by using thermal decomposition of the precursor, Sn(S2CNEt 2)4 in an organic solvent at elevated temperature. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) images showed that the SnS2 nanocrystals obtained by the process are 2D hexagonal nanoplates, with a lateral size of of ca. 150 nm and size distribution. The thickness of SnS2 nanoplates was estimated to be ca. 15 nm, according to the (001) peak by Sherrer equation.
