Abstract

The wet chemical synthesis of organic molecule encapsulated Bi xSb yTe 100-x-y nanoparticles (NPs) has been demonstrated to be shape and composition controllable as a function of the organic capping species used, the particles serve as intriguing materials towards thermoelectric (TE) devices with enhanced and controllable activity.
