The Synthesis of a High Yield PbSe Quantum Dots by Hot Solution Method

2008 Bulletin of the Korean Chemical Society (Print)  
Colloidal solutions of crystalline PbSe nanoparticles have been synthesized by hot solution chemical process using PbO in oleic acid and tributylphosphine (TBP) bonded selenium. The use of TBP as a capping agent along with oleic acid gives a very good yield (around 10% at 180 o C) with an average diameter of particle of about < 6.6 nm. The effects of temperature on size and production yield of PbSe quantum dots are studied. Xray diffraction (XRD), high-resolution transmission electron
