Bismuth sulfide overview

Bismuth sulfide, chemical formula Bi2S3. Molecular weight 514.15. Brown-yellow powder or crystal. Specific gravity 7.39. 685 ℃ decomposition. Insoluble in water and ethyl acetate, soluble in nitric acid and hydrochloric acid. Sulfur or it is made by transferring hydrogen sulfide into a solution of bismuth salts. For the preparation of bismuth compounds. Bismuth sulfide is an important semiconductor material, and its application in optoelectronic components and thermoelectric devices has brought great convenience to mankind. Nano-bismuth sulfide makes its various properties more optimized. Since the properties of nanomaterials largely depend on the morphology of nanomaterials, it is of great significance to synthesize more bismuth sulfide nanostructures with special morphologies.

Why is bismuth comparable to gold?

That's because it's about twice as much in the Earth's crust as gold, and it's actually a rare metal. It is the 83rd element in the periodic table and the heaviest element in the periodic table. Its average price in the international market is only a few dollars per kilogram. It is very cheap compared to other fossil materials.

As early as ancient Greece and Rome, bismuth was used as the basis for boxes and boxes.

 Why does bismuth give off an iridescent sheen?

The oxide film around the outer edge grows at a higher rate due to the helical stepped structure of the bismuth crystal. It will cause light interference. Metal bismuth in nature often exists in the form of free metals and minerals. When scientists burn with high temperature, they heat it to above the melting point of metal bismuth, and burn out a crystalline light blue flame, bismuth oxide can Produced by dissolving into a liquid, the silver cools into a rainbow of colored polarized light, so the bismuth metal forms complex and regular bismuth crystals. Its color is determined by the thickness of the outer oxide film, which reflects the different colors of the metal. It is often compared to lead, which is often replaced by bismuth.

Applications of Bismuth Sulphide

Bismuth sulfide has the advantages of environmental, photoconductivity, and nonlinear optical response. It is widely used in solar cells, photodiode arrays and infrared spectroscopy. It can also be used in the manufacture of other bismuth compounds, free-cutting steel additives and in the microelectronics industry. Bismuth sulfide powder can be used to prepare bismuth sulfide nanosheets, nanosheets and ultrathin films.

Bismuth sulfide powder is suitable for liquid chemical exfoliation to prepare Bi2S3 nanosheets and nanoparticles, which can form multilayer films at most.

Bismuth sulfide (Bi2S3) has a good band gap of 1.3 eV (near infrared light) and a large absorption coefficient. It can be used for solution processing thermoelectric devices, photodetectors, photosensitizers, solar cells and supercapacitors. Bi2S3 is also an interesting polymer nanoparticle solar cell candidate.
