  • Patent number: 9343301
    Abstract: A process is disclosed for producing quantum dots (QDs) by reacting one or more core semiconductor precursors with phosphine in the presence of a molecular cluster compound. The core semiconductor precursor(s) provides elements that are incorporated into the QD core semiconductor material. The core semiconductor also incorporates phosphorus, which is provided by the phosphine. The phosphine may be provided to the reaction as a gas or may, alternatively, be provided as an adduct of another material.

  • Publication number: 20140155640
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for the production of surface functionalised nanoparticles, such as the production of semiconductor quantum dot nanoparticles incorporating surface-bound functional groups which increase the ease with which the dots can be employed in applications, such as incorporation into solvents, inks, polymers, glasses, metals, electronic materials and devices, bio-molecules and cells. The method comprises reacting first and second nanoparticle precursor species in the presence of a nanoparticle surface binding ligand X—Y—Z wherein X is a nanoparticle surface binding group, Y is a linker group, and Z is a functional group, in which Y comprises a polyethyleneglycol group and/or Z comprises an aliphatic group incorporating a terminal unsaturated group, said reaction being effected under conditions permitting binding of said surface binding ligand to the growing nanoparticles to produce said surface functionalised nanoparticles.
