ACS Appl Mater Interfaces. 2013 May 22;5(10):4100-6. doi: 10.1021/am3032212. Epub 2013 May 13.We report, for the first time, the synthesis of colloidal copper indium selenide (CuInSe2) nanocrystals (NCs) possessing a gradient stoichiometry that is potentially tunable by the presence of a conducting polymer, i.e., poly(3-hexyl thiophene) (P3HT) in the synthesis medium. Dibenzyl ether (DBE) was used as a reaction medium, whereas copper acetylacetonate (Cu(acac)2), indium acetylacetonate (In(acac)3), and selenium powder were used as Cu, In, and Se sources, respectively.
