Abstract

Four [(CdSe)13(RNH2)13] derivatives (R = n-propyl, n-pentyl, n-octyl, and oleyl) are prepared by reaction of Cd(OAc) 2·2H2O and selenourea in the corresponding primary-amine solvent. Nanoclusters grow in spontaneously formed amine-bilayer templates and are characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, UV-vis spectroscopy, TEM, and low-angle XRD. Derivative [(CdSe)13(n- propylamine)13] is isolated as a yellowish-white solid (MP 98 C) on the gram scale. These compounds are the first derivatives of magic-size CdSe nanoclusters to be isolated in purity.
