Abstract

The synthesis and characterization of crystalline colloidal zinc phosphide quantum dots with observable excitonic transitions ranging between 424–535 nm (2.3–2.9 eV) are reported. A ternary combination of ZnEt2, Zn(O2CR)2, and P(SiMe3)3, forms a pentanuclear zinc cluster on mixing followed by conversion to (Et2Zn)P(ZnO2CR)2(SiMe3) in a rate-determining step prior to quantum dot formation.
