Ultrathin necklaces of Bi2S3 nanowires can be synthesized in solution on a gram scale and using cheap and non‐air‐sensitive reagents, as described by G. A. Ozin and co‐workers in their Communication on page 3814 ff. Despite their small size, these nanostructures show quantum confinement effects never before observed in Bi2S3 at room temperature, and a semiconductivity which bodes well for their use in flexible electronics devices.
