Flower-like structure particles are prepared by a simple and rapid method. The reaction proceeds in a polyalcohol system without using any complex precursors. The phase and morphology of the are investigated. Furthermore, flower-like structure CuS particles are synthesized via the reaction of ions with the obtained as templates. Both the and CuS particles can be used in preparing compound solar cell material .
