Tin sulfide (SnS) nanostructures have been synthesized using a simple and low temperature chemical solution method on seeded substrates, and their structural and optical properties have been investigated. The as-grown SnS nanostructures with well-defined facets exhibited good stoichiometry between constituent elements. These nanobox structures are preferentially oriented along the 010] direction by having 100] and 001] orientations as surrounding facets and exhibited Two distinguishable optical band gaps of 1.36 and 1.9 eV. The effect of solution concentration as well as seed layer on the morphology or SnS structures has also been studied, and finally, the growth mechanism of the regular SnS nanobox structures is proposed.
