Face-open nanoboxes of lead telluride and setenide have been synthesized by a simple hydrothermal method. Nano- and microcrystals of various morphologies, including microflowers, semi-microflowers, cubic nanopartides, etc., have also been observed at different synthesis conditions. Temperature, time, and concentrations of various reactants play a major role in controlling the morphology and shape evolution of the product. This simple synthesis technique for the growth of various nano- and microstructures opens a new route to prepare hierarchical structures of a variety of binary semiconducting materials in a large quantity. A possible growth mechanism of such nano-and microstructures has been proposed.
