Nanomaterials via Single-Source Precursors: Synthesis, Processing and Applications presents recent results and overviews of synthesis, processing, characterization and applications of advanced materials for energy, electronics, biomedicine, sensors and aerospace. A variety of processing methods (vapor, liquid and solid-state) are covered, along with materials, including metals, oxides, semiconductor, sulfides, selenides, nitrides, and carbon-based materials. Production of quantum dots, nanoparticles, thin films and composites are described by a collection of international experts. Given the ability to customize the phase, morphology, and properties
Ultrafine CuInS2 chalcopyrite nanoparticles were synthesized via thermal- and photo-decomposition of single source precursors with the general formula [(R3P)2CuIn(SR)4]. By developing a range of single source precursors that decompose at lower temperatures (>160°C) we were able to access smaller (>2.5 nm diameter) nanoparticle sizes using solvo-thermal synthesis. Furthermore, we report the first account of the use of light irradiation to generate ternary semi-conducting nanoparticles. Using light as the decomposition agent gives different nanoparticle growth dynamics which leads to
