Abstract

ZnO/ZnS multilevel nanostructures were prepared using the electrospark erosion (ESE)technique. ZnS nanoparticles were produced via self-propagating high-temperature synthesis using stoichiometric mixtures of pure elementary sulfur and Zn nanopowder prepared by the ESE method. According to the XRD analysis data, the phases of ZnO, ZnS were found in the final synthesis products. The SEM observations show that the obtained products are multilevel structures consisting of ZnO spherical particles covered with ZnS nanorods.
