In this work, we report the study of growth of CdS as well as ZnS nanocrystals using in-situ small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) technique, in presence of thio-glycerol as capping agent. We observe that the diameter of the nanocrystal is controlled between 1 and 3 nm by varying the temperature of the reaction. Further, the self-focusing of the size distribution can be observed and is more pronounced at higher temperatures reducing its relative width from 25% to 10%.
