Molecular dynamics method with empirical interatomic potentials is used to simulate the structure of ZnS nanoparticles. The difference in crystal lattice structure, strains and internal pressure in the grain interior and in the surface shell is analyzed as a function of the grain size up to 2r=5 nm. MD predictions of x-ray diffraction are compared with experimental results.
