Lead(II) bromide (PbBr2) can be used in the fabrication of nanoscale quasi-2D layered perovskites, which are potentially utilized as light-emitting materials. It can also be used for the synthesis of deep blue fluorescent lead bromide perovskite microdisks. These microdisks can be used as direct bandgap semiconductors for light-emitting diodes (LEDs).

Methods of Synthesizing Monodisperse Colloidal Quantum Dots

Colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) are semiconducting crystals of only a few nanometers (ca. 2–12 nm) coated with ligand/surfactant molecules to help prevent agglomeration.

Thiolated gold nanoclusters: A new class of photosensitizers

The past several decades have seen major advancements in the synthesis of metal nanomaterials. Most recently, controlled synthesis has become versatile enough to regulate the exact number of atoms and ligands of very small metal nanoparticles, referred to as “clusters”.
