Cycloocteno-1,2,3-selenadiazole, an organometallic selenium precursor reacts with mercury acetate in aq. N,N -dimethylformamide (DMF) or in ethylene glycol (EG) at a temperature between 120 and 130 • C to afford nano-sized HgSe. The product was characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and transmission electron microscopy TEM. The electron diffraction analysis showed crystalline nature of na…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
