Abstract:
CdSe nanocrystals with tunable sizes and distributions were synthesized directly from Cd(ii) ions coordinated to the conjugated backbone of a thiophene-based conducting metallopolymer. Using our seeded growth technique, the resulting nanocrystals are in direct electronic communication with the polymer, which leads to effective charge transfer between the donor and acceptor.
