Chemistry Seminar — Phase Determination of Colloidal Nanocrystals
Workshop / Seminar

A great deal of progress has been made in the synthesis of colloidal nanocrystals, which now allows for exacting control over nanocrystal size, shape, polydispersity, and composition. Despite these numerous achievements, most colloidal nanocrystals are synthesized in their thermodynamically preferred structural polymorphs. That is, most of the work to date has focused on “nanosizing” the known phases of bulk materials.
