Nanoparticle lattices and surfaces The challenge of resolving the details of the surfaces or assemblies of colloidal semiconductor nanoparticles can be overcome if several characterization methods are used (see the Perspective by Boles and Talapin). Boneschanscher et al. examined honeycomb superlattices of lead selenide nanocrystals formed by the bonding of crystal faces using several methods, including high-resolution electron microscopy and tomography. The structure had octahedral symmetry… 
Synthesis of InP/ZnS Nanocrystals and Phase Transfer by Hydrolysis of Ester
Abstract The synthesis of highly luminescent non-toxic nanocrystals (NCs) and the subsequent phase transfer to aqueous solution by hydrolysis of the crystal-bound ester are presented. Therefore, the
Hybrid Oleate–Iodide Ligand Shell for Air-Stable PbSe Nanocrystals and Superstructures
TLDR
Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy shows that the surface coordination of the oleate ligands changes by the chemical treatment: from mixed chelating bidentate + bridging to Pb for the pristine nanocrystals to almost exclusive chelates bidentates coordination after chemical passivation.
Influence of the Surface of a Nanocrystal on its Electronic and Phononic Properties
Over the past thirty years, it has been consistently observed that surface engineering of colloidal nanocrystals (NC) is key to their performance parameters. In the case of lead chalcogenide NCs, for
Tuning Branching in Ceria Nanocrystals
Branched nanocrystals (NCs) enable high atomic surface exposure within a crystalline network that provides avenues for charge transport. This combination of properties makes branched NCs particularly
Ligand induced shape transformation of thorium dioxide nanocrystals.
TLDR
This work provides atomic level insights into the anisotropic growth of ThO2 NCs that was recently observed in experiments, and thus may contribute to the controlled synthesis of actinide oxide NCs with well-defined size and shape for future applications.

TLDR
These studies have shed light on the influence of ligand chemistry on crystal growth and stabilization of the nanocrystals, which opens the door to functionalizable perovskite nanocrsytals through surface ligand manipulation.

TLDR
If NCs are to be useful within electrical devices, such as photovoltaic (PV) cells, the complex relation between their surface structure and their frontier orbital structure must be better understood.

Surface chemistry of colloidal PbSe nanocrystals.
TLDR
NMR results on a Q-PbSe suspension, stored under ambient conditions, suggest that oxidation leads to the loss of oleic acid ligands and surface Pb atoms, forming dissolved lead oleate.
Energetics of polar and nonpolar facets of PbSe nanocrystals from theory and experiment.
TLDR
The stability and atomic structure of polar and nonpolar PbSe surfaces are investigated by combining first-principles calculations with high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and confirm that these multipolar surfaces are energetically more favorable than fully polar surfaces.

TLDR
It is proposed that the acetate, naturally present in insufficiently dried reaction mixtures, is responsible for many of the PbSe crystal shapes reported in the literature.
Size-tunable, bright, and stable PbS quantum dots: a surface chemistry study.
TLDR
It is observed that charge-neutral Qdots are obtained when taking into account the charge of the stoichiometric PbS Qdot core, the surface excess of Pb ions, thesurface-adsorbed Cl ions and the oleate ligands.
First-principles modeling of unpassivated and surfactant-passivated bulk facets of wurtzite CdSe: a model system for studying the anisotropic growth of CdSe nanocrystals.
TLDR
The polar facets are less stable and less efficiently passivated than the nonpolar facets, and this can rationalize the observed anisotropic growth mechanism of wurtzite nanocrystals in the presence of suitable surfactants.
Symmetry-controlled colloidal nanocrystals: nonhydrolytic chemical synthesis and shape determining parameters.
TLDR
The crystalline phase of nucleating seeds, surface energy, kinetic vs thermodynamic growth, and selective adhesion processes of capping ligands are found to be most crucial for the determination of the nanocrystal shape.
Colloidal nanocrystal synthesis and the organic–inorganic interface
TLDR
Colloidal nanocrystals are solution-grown, nanometre-sized, inorganic particles that are stabilized by a layer of surfactants attached to their surface, which makes these structures attractive and promising building blocks for advanced materials and devices.
