Abstract

This invention provides substantially monodisperse colloidal nanocrystals and new preparative methods of synthesis. The methods afford the ability to tune nanocrystal size and size distribution. By using non-coordinating solvents in the synthetic process, these procedures constitute easier, less expensive, safer, and more environmentally “green” methods than those currently in use. The invention is generally applicable to any II-VI or III-V semiconductor material, and may be useful in generating metal-nonmetal compounds involving transition metals as well.
