A micro-reactor was utilized for continuous and controlled CdSe nanocrystal preparation. Effects of reaction conditions on optical properties of the nanocrystals were investigated; in this current system, rapid and exact temperature control of the micro-reactor was beneficial for controlling particle diameter and reproducible preparation of particles; additional effort was made towards narrower particle-size distributions.
