Abstract: The chemical and physical properties of thiol-stabilized
semiconductor nanocrystals are reviewed. The materials prepared include
cadmium and mercury chalcogenides with sizes ranging between 1.4 and
about 8 nm. In this size regime, the optical properties of the particles
are governed by the size-quantization effect. All nanocrystals synthesized
belong to the cubic crystal structure. Some applications of this class
of materials are outlined.
