Investigating the role of amine in InP nanocrystal synthesis: destabilizing cluster intermediates by Z-type ligand displacement

Author affiliations

Abstract

The reaction of primary amines with In37P20(O2CR)51 is found to remove In(O2CR)3 subunits from In37P20(O2CR)51. This loss of Z-type ligands coincides with structural rearrangement to alleviate core strain and passivate phosphorus atoms. This result consolidates conflicting claims that primary amines both promote and retard precursor conversion rates for InP nanocrystals.
