GSH-capped CdS nanocrystallites were synthesized by reacting Cd(II)-GSH with aqueous sodium sulfide using specific initial sulfide/Cd(II) ratios. Spectroscopic analyses of fractions obtained from a size exclusion column showed varying absorption spectra indicating a significant dispersion in size-distribution of nanocrystallites at lower sulfide/Cd(II) ratios. However, size distribution of the nanocrystallites was narrower at initial sulfide/Cd(II) ratios that exceeded 1.0. An ethanol… CONTINUE READING
