Simple green synthesis is a breath of fresh air

A method for creating nanoparticles without using solvents could lead to environmentally friendly electronics.

‚ÄčNanoparticles of controllable composition and size have great potential in electrical, optical and chemical devices, but they must be created in a safe and cost-effective way. Kazuhiro Takanabe and coworkers from KAUST now report a simple method for synthesizing metal-sulfide nanoparticles at low temperature without using environmentally harmful solvents.
