A simple solventothermal method has been employed for nanocrystalline MSe2
(M=Fe, Co or Ni) at 160 degreesC. The final product phases were confirmed b
y X-ray diffraction (XRD). Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) revealed
that the obtained crystalline MSe2 consist of nano-particles and a small am
ount of irregular plate-like products with relatively large size. (C) 2001
