Single source precursor routes for synthesis of PdTe nanorods and particles: solvent dependent control of shapes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The PdTe NPs (hexagonal) and nanorods (first example) have been synthesized for the first time from single source precursors (SSPs), [Pd(L1)Cl2] (1) and [Pd(L2)Cl]BF4 (2) [L1, 4-bromo-1-[2-(4-methoxyphenyltellanyl)ethyl]-1H-pyrazole; L2, bis-[2-(4-bromopyrazol-1-yl)ethyl]telluride], by their thermolysis in an OA–ODE mixture (1 : 1) and TOP respectively. The composition of the PdTe phase does not change with SSP/solvent. Complex 2 gives small size nanostructures.
