New palladium selenoether nanoparticles

Ajai Singh and his team have grown Pd4Se and Pd7Se4 nanoparticles for the first time. Why is this interesting? Well, because palladium and platinum chalcogenides have many uses – from catalysis, to electronic devices and light image receiving materials. But these compounds can be difficult to make safely as the current precursors are toxic and/or volatile. Singh and colleagues have made these new nanoparticles as a possible safe precursor to these valuable chalcogenide compounds. Find out more in this recent Hot Communication FREE for you to access until the 15th January:
