49_27b/2010Inside Cover: Colloidal Synthesis of Non-Equilibrium Wurtzite-Type MnSe (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 27/2010)

The elusive wurtzite polymorph of MnSe, the end member of the magnetic solid semiconductor solution Zn1-xMnxSe, was synthesized for the first time as colloidal nanoparticles. In their Communication on page 4638 ff., R. E. Schaak et al. describe the chemical low-temperature synthesis of this previously unknown compound in high yields. The material has an optical bandgap of 3.5–3.8 eV, and there are indications of antiferromagnetic ordering at 64 K.
