Quadrilateral CdO nanoparticles were grown from cadmium cupferronate complex by injecting the precursor dissolved in octylamine into trioctylamine at 220 and 250 °C. CdO/ZnO core/shell structures were synthesized with a method similar to that of growing CdO cores by injecting the shell precursor following the growth of cores. The shell growth temperature was adjusted from 160 to 130 °C, and the shell precursor supply speed was adjusted from 4 to 8 ml/h. The obtained nanostructures were characterized by X-ray diffraction, high resolution transmission electron microscope, and ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometer. No core/shell structures formed if the shell precursor injection speed was as high as 8 ml/h. A very thin layer of ZnO shells would form on CdO cores if the shell precursor was injected at a speed of 4 ml/h at temperature of 160 °C, and the shells had good crystal quality. CdO/ZnO core/shell nanostructures were inclined to be spherical, and no homogeneous formation of ZnO nanoparticles was observed if the shell precursor injection temperature was lowered to 130 °C.
