Abstract

A soluble, highly crystalline, monodisperse, and size-controlled In2O3 nanoparticles by thermal decomposition of In(acac)3 in oleylamine under inert atmosphere was given. The particle size of In2O3 can be easily manipulated by changing the experimental conditions, and a weak size dependence of photoluminescence was demonstrated. The high solubility of the prepared oleylamine-capped In2O3 nanoparticles in various organic solvents and the ready formation of a superlattice on a flat surface promise potential utilization of their size-dependent properties and the facile fabrication of nanodevices.
