Scholarcy highlights

  • Different kinds of safe, common, and low-cost compounds were proven to be good solvents/precursors for the synthesis of high quality CdSe nanocrystals
  • The Altmetric Attention Score is a quantitative measure of the attention that a research article has received online
  • The size, shape, and crystal structure of CdSe nanocrystals synthesized by these alternative routes can be varied in a controllable manner in a very broad size range, from about 1.5 nm to above 25 nm
  • The synthesis of high quality CdSe nanocrystals in the current systems is not feasible when the system contains any anions from a strong acid, either in the form of a cadmium precursor or as an added cadmium ligand
  • The experimental results indicate that the synthesis of high quality colloidal nanocrystals is far less delicate than it has been thought to be
