We report a high-yield synthesis of single-crystal hexagonal Sb2Te3 nanoplates using a solvothermal approach. The experimental results show that the concentration of capping agent CTAB played a key role in the formation of nanoplates. This new nanostructure may provide opportunity for the exploration of novel thermoelectric properties and have potential applications in thermoelectric nanodevices.
