Ultrathin tin-doped zinc oxide (Sn-doped ZnO) nanowires with uniform diameters of 2.3 ± 0.2 nm were synthesized by a facile colloidal method. The introduction of group IV dopants may serve as an effective strategy to control the shape of doped ZnO nanocrystals. This doping procedure, based on the aminolysis approach, may be extended to the synthesis of other doped oxide nanocrystals.
