Nucleation and Growth Behavior of CdSe Nanocrystals Synthesized in the Presence of Oleylamine Coordinating Ligand.


We established the dual role played by oleylamine (OAm) during the synthesis of CdSe nanocrystals (NCs) by the hot injection method. Earlier reports suggest its role either as nucleating or as passivating agent in controlling the growth of CdSe NCs. Remarkably, by exploring four different synthesis routes, in which the reactant addition, timing, and… (More)
