A microwave-assisted solvothermal method was used for the synthesis of selenium nanorods. The obtained selenium nanorods have axis ratios higher than 100 with their diameters in the range of 30-150 nm. This method is quite simple, rapid, adjustable, and general. Besides the effects of the experimental parameters on the synthesis of the selenium nanorods, the generality of this method has also been investigated, by which other one-dimensional nanostructures, metal lead and semiconductor cadmium sulfide nanorods, were also successfully synthesized.
