Nanoco Technologies’ molecular seeding methodology has been developed to create reproducible routes to larger quantities of crystalline, low size dispersity, stable QDs. In the presence of a molecular cluster compound and chemical precursors, QDs are produced under conditions whereby the integrity of the molecular cluster is maintained and acts as a prefabricated seed template.
Individual molecules of a cluster compound act as seeds or nucleation points upon which nanoparticle growth can be initiated. Consequently, because suitable nucleation sites are already provided in the system by the molecular clusters, a high temperature nucleation step is not necessary to initiate nanoparticle growth and the methodology is scaleable.
This has proved to be a very generic method and can produce many types of quantum dots of differing architecture and also other nano-materials
Nanoco Technologies are always happy to talk to our customers about other quantum dot materials you are interested in.
