Abstract

Organic-functionalized nanoscale yttrium aluminum garnet (YAG) particles were synthesized via a simple rapid supercritical hydrothermal method in the presence of oleylamine and oleic acid as organic surface modifiers. The presence of the organic molecules resulted in the various morphologies of the produced YAG particles, including cubic, spherical and chainlike structures. Because of their hydrophobic surface character, as-synthesized particles were dispersible in organic solvents.
