    We have successfully fabricated insoluble copper(I) complex [Cu(-I)dppet]2 nanocrystals by developing the heterogeneous reaction process between rod-like nanocrystals of dppet ligand prepared in advance and added acetonitrile solution of copper(I) halide. During this reaction process, the shape of dppet ligand nanocrystals was dramatically changed from rod-like to spherical. Probably, the complexation reaction and subsequent nanocrystallization would proceed on or near swollen surface of dppet nanocrystals in acetonitrile droplet as restricted reaction field.
