Highly monodisperse Si nanocrystals (2–6 nm) are synthesized by solution-phase reduction of SiCl4 within inverse micelles. Alkyl-terminated nanocrystals with mean diameters from 2 to 6 nm are produced by varying the cationic surfactants used, confirmed by TEM and FTIR. Si nanocrystals exhibit strong blue emission, with a highest quantum yield of 12% for the smallest NCs.
