Deposition and Characterization of CdSe Nanoparticles in Polymeric Materials
Cadmium selenide nanoparticles coated with zinc sulphide CdSe/ZnS were prepared using dual source method. The composites were fabricated by stabilizing chemically synthesized semiconductor CdSe/ZnS into Laurylmethacrylate (LMA) and ethyleneglycol dimethacrylate (EGDMA) matrices in the presence of tri-n-octylphosphine (TOP). CdSe/ZnS were dispersed in toluene as a compatible medium for the polymerization and cross-linking of poly Laurylmethacrylate (LMA) networks. Transparent, fluorescent and flexible nano composites (NCs) materials resulted. The nano size particles and polymer composites were characterized by XRD, TG-DTA, IR, TEM and SEM.
