Nanosized CdSe particles were synthesized at a temperature of 115°–175°C by a solution method with air pressure condition. Ethylene glycol (EG) was used as the main solvent and sodium selenite and cadmium nitrate-tetrahydrate as inorganic sources. The influence of refluxing temperature and time on growth morphology and crystallization was investigated by transmission electron microscope, high-resolution transmission electron microscope, and X-ray diffraction. The chemical reaction was deducted based on X-ray photoelectron spectra. The optical absorption property was measured by UV-vis. The CdSe nanoparticles synthesized through this EG solvent system was single wurtzite crystallization and had a nanoscale size below 15 nm diameter with a narrow size distribution. The reduction of Se4+→Se0→Se2−and the disproportionation of Se0 occurred during the synthetic process and dominated the chemical reaction.
