During the past decade, one-dimensional (1D) nanostructured materials have sparked a worldwide interest because of their unique electronic, optical, and mechanical properties and their potential applications in nanodevices and functional materials. Recently, Qian et al. has reported a solvothermal synthesis of chalcogenides using enthylenediamine as the solvent [1-2]. However, it is inevitable to use toxic, dangerous and expensive solvent in the solvothermal process. Addressing this issue, we have presented a thioglyeolic acid (TGA) assisted hydrothermal method to prepare one-dimensional chalcogenides, which is milder, simpler, more practical, and more environmentally friendly in comparison with the solvothermal method.
