Nano-sized antimony telluride is of much interest for improving the thermoelectric figure of merit. In the present work, organic-assisted antimony telluride nanorods were successfully fabricated by a simple hydrothermal method. The products were characterized by means of X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscope, and transmission electron microscope. The results show that the typical antimony telluride synthesized by co-precipitation reductive route is rodlike in shape with about 35 nm in thickness and 300 nm in edge length.
