A General Chemical Route for the Synthesis of Capped Nanocrystalline Materials
Noble metals, magnetic and semiconducting nanocrystalline materials have been synthesized via the thermolytic decomposition of inorganic metal salts, at high temperature, in commercial oleyl amine. The oleyl amine acts as high boiling point coordinating solvent, capping agent and, when required, as reducing agent. The crystal structure and morphology of the nanostructured materials have been studied with powder X-ray analysis (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The particles are well dispersed in non polar solvents such as hexane, toluene and chloroform and have uniform morphology.
