Low price, high purity 2D zirconium triselenide  powder and crystals

For the development of next-generation electronics, optoelectronics, and nanotechnology

Zirconium triselenide (ZrSe3) belongs to the IVB layered transition metal trichalcogenides (TMTCs).

ZrSe3 has a chain-like structure and crystallises in the monoclinic space group P21/m. Each zirconium atom at the centre is coordinated to six parallel arranged selenide atoms forming distorted trigonal prisms.

ZrSe3 is a n-type characteristic semiconductor with an indirect bandgap of 1.1 eV and a direct bandgap of 1.47 eV.  The indirect bandgap of ZrSe3 monolayers increases with the tensile strain, but the indirect character is retained in most cases.

We supply zirconium triselenide in both powdered and crystal forms.

Bulk single zirconium triselenide crystal is most commonly used as sources from which single or few-layer sheets can be obtained via either mechanical or liquid exfoliation. Single zirconium triselenide crystal or films produced from such crystals are suitable for study using atomic force microscopy or transmission electron microscopy

Few-layer ZrSe3 nanosheets and nanoparticles can also obtained from zirconium triselenide powder by liquid-exfoliation.

Structure and Properties of Zirconium Triselenide

After exfoliation of zirconium triselenide crystal or powder, zirconium triselenide typically has the following properties:

  • ‎Monoclinic (space group: P21/m)
  • ZrSe3 is n-type semiconductor
  • ZrSeexhibits coexisting charge density waves (CDW) and superconducting response
  • ZrSe3 is semiconducting as well as metallic
  • Transition metal trichalcogenides (TMTCs)

Applications of Zirconium Triselenide

Zirconium triselenide (ZrSe3) single crystals can be used to prepare monolayer and few-layer ZrSe3 by mechanical or liquid exfoliation. Zirconium triselenide powder is suitable for liquid chemical exfoliation to prepare ZrSe3 nanosheets and nanoparticles down to few-layer films.Zirconim triselenide has applications in polarized light emitting and photodetecting devices related to its quasi-one dimensional properties such as high anisotropy ratios in conductivity and linear dichroism. Zirconium triselenide has also great application potentials in thermal energy batteries, near-infrared imaging, gas sensors, photodetectoros and solar cells.

Structure of Zirconium Triselenide

Like the crystal structure of ZrS3, ZrSe3 has a chain-like structure belonging to the space group P21/m. Each zirconium atom at the centre is coordinated to six parallel arranged selenide atoms forming distorted trigonal prisms.

Better described by ionic model as Zr4+(Se2)2-Se2-, there are two types of Se atoms in the crystal system. Shown in the crystal structure below, a basic structural fragment prism {ZrSe6/2} is constructed from two diselenide (Se‒Se)2- groups as well as two selenide groups Se2- with Zr atom situated near the centre of the prism. Such prisms with metal atoms situated close to the prism centres are connected to each other via common triangle bases to form infinite columns. This leads to strong anisotropic behaviour that offers additional advantages over isotropic 2D systems.
