Quantum Size Effects A chemist likes to keep track of material in grams or in moles, where a 1 mole = 6 x 10 23 atoms But how many atoms do you really need … for gold to become gold-colored ? 1 < ? < 6 x 10 23 for water to flow like a liquid ? for iron to become magnetic ?

Cobalt at the Nanoscale R EPORTS Colloidal Nanocrystal Shape and Size Control: The Case of Cobalt Victor F. Puntes, * Kannan M. Krishnan, A. Paul Alivisatos We show that a relatively simple approach for controlling the colloidal synthesis of anisotropic cadmium selenide semiconductor nanorods can be extended to the size-controlled preparation of magnetic cobalt nanorods as well as spher- ically shaped nanocrystals. This approach helps define a minimum feature set needed to separately control the sizes and shapes of nanocrystals. The resulting cobalt nanocrystals produce interesting two- and three-dimensional super- structures, including ribbons of nanorods.
