Drastic structural transformation of cadmium chalcogenide nanoparticles using chloride ions and surfactants.


In the present work, we studied a unique and facile method for the drastic structural transformation of hydrophobic small CdE (E = S, Se, Te) nanoparticles into large, high-quality pencil-shaped nanoparticles through an Ostwald ripening process induced by Cl(-) and surfactants (oleic acid and oleylamine). This study revealed that Cl(-) is the effective… (More)
