Literature Seminar

Magic-sized clusters (MSCs) have recently been of interest as precursors in the synthesis of nanoparticles of potentially useful materials. They can be used to produce a narrower size distribution of the resulting nanoparticles (as opposed to simple salt precursors), and can be used to control morphology. However, the role of MSCs on the nucleation and growth steps varies drastically across different reaction systems. This talk will focus on one kind of MSC used for the synthesis of InP nanoparticles, and will explore the effect of additives on the MSCs to determine how the stability of the MSCs alters the growth mechanism to form anisotropic particles.
