1 Engineering colloidal quantum dots

Synthesis, surface chemistry, and self-assembly
Maryna I. Bodnarchuk and Maksym V. Kovalenko

1.1 Colloidal synthesis of inorganic nanocrystals and quantum dots

1.1.1 Introductory remarks: history and terminology

Historically, one of the most accomplished nanoscale building blocks is the quantum dot, also known as a semiconductor nanocrystal (NC). Since the early 1980s, the chemistry of colloidal nanostructures has been almost exclusively concentrated on colloidal semiconductors such as CdS and TiO2. Those early efforts rose from the oil crisis ...
