Abstract

The preparation of size-controlled CdS nanoparticles in block copolymer micelles and formation of composite particles of CdS nanoparticles and polymers are described in this paper. Uniformly sized CdS nanoparticles with different emission wavelengths were successfully synthesized. In addition, composite Janus particles, unidirectionally stacked lamellae particles and onion particles were formed by combining CdS nanoparticles and polymer blend or block copolymer systems. This approach provides a simple route for the preparation of functional organic/inorganic composite particles.
