Abstract: The precursors [In(bipy)(SC{O}Ph)3] and [Ag(SC{O}Ph)] have been used to prepare monodispersed polyhedral shaped AgInS2 nanocrystals (NCs). The NCs were fully characterized by X-ray powder diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, selected area electron diffraction and energy dispersive X-ray analysis. The synthesis of AgInS2 NCs was further investigated by varying the dual- and multiple-source precursors and other parameters such as surfactants, surfactant ratio, temperature and time duration, to optimize the conditions to get better quality NCs. In all these reactions, a heterobimetallic thiobenzoate intermediate similar to the single-source precursor [(Ph3P)2AgIn(SC{O}Ph)4] has been proposed to have formed which decompose subsequently to AgInS2 NCs. © The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.
