The key to controlling the morphologies of quantum nanocrystals: spherical carborane ligands

Author affiliations

Abstract

By minor structure modification of spherical carborane ligands, in a similar synthetic procedure, large morphological changes are produced in Quantum Nanocrystals (QNCs). The spheres are icosahedral C2B10H12 molecules with binding sites on the carbon, and the QNCs produced are Quantum Dots, Rods, Rings and Tetrapods. These QNCs demonstrated high stability and impeccable emissive properties for more than a year.
