Abstract

original image

All you need is a little inspiration: Inspired by nature, a green and low-cost synthetic method was developed to prepare monodisperse ZnS supraparticles (SPs) with the zinc-blende structure at 37.0 °C. The prepared ZnS SPs can be used as catalysts for the photoinduced dechlorination of 2,2′,4,4′,5,5′-hexachlorobiphenyl. A degradation efficiency of about 70 % was obtained under irradiation with UV light for 12 hours.
