Abstract : A simple solution phase approach using dimethyl formamide (DMF) as solvent is utilized to obtain selenium (Se) microcrystals. Different morphological modifications of the products result from varied reaction environments. Solvothermal treatment of Se with DMF in an autoclave at 170°C yields rod-like, and feather-shaped microcrystalline structures while reduction of selenium dioxaide (SeO2) by DMF generates microspheres at 30°C and 80°C, rods admixed with spherical particles at 120°C and predominantly micro rods at 150°C.
