Abstract

A solar furnace that produces temperatures as high as 2500 °C is used to generate new hybrid fullerene-like nanostructures of MoS2. As J. M. Gordon, R. Tenne, and co-workers describe in their Communication on page 1810 ff., these particles are comprised of a nanoscale octahedral core with a smooth transition to quasi-spherical outer shells, and their structures were confirmed by modeling studies.
