Two-dimensional single-crystalline Zn hexagonal nanoplates

What is it about?

We synthesized two-dimensional (2D) Zn hexagonal nanoplates using the thermal metal-vapor deposition technique. An increase and decrease in the surface area and thickness of the 2D Zn hexagonal nanoplates were shown with elevated annealing temperatures, indicating their sizes to be controlled using the annealing treatment. X-Ray diffractometry (XRD) studies revealed the crystalline nature of the 2D Zn hexagonal nanoplates
