Abstract: A novel method, the program process of microwave irradiation (PPMI), which commendably integrates good qualities of microwave irradiation and a programmed heating process, is presented to synthesize high-quality CdTe nanocrystals in aqueous solution. Microwave irradiation, which acts as the heating mode of PPMI, is highly favorable for a narrow size distribution and low concentration of surface defects of nanocrystals. On the other hand, two correlative processes (the first process and the second process) are utilized in PPMI to actualize the programmed heating process, which is an effective strategy to improve the quality of nanocrystals. Thus, a series (diameters ∼2-4 nm) of highly luminescent (PLQY ∼ 30-68%) CdTe nanocrystals were rapidly prepared (reaction time ∼ 1-30 min) in aqueous phase through PPMI. © 2006 American Chemical Society.
