The nucleation process of CdSe nanocrystals is studied by fluorescence-detected extended x-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) using a microreactor and synchrotron radiation. Detailed analysis of in situ Se K-edge EXAFS data measured along a microreactor channel revealed a strong position-dependence which displays a rapid increase in the CdSe phase with time at the initial stage. The results indicate that the CdSe nucleation completes within several seconds starting from trioctylphosphine Se solution and dodecylamine surfactant at 240 °C. This shows the promising capability of in situ EXAFS combined with a microreactor to investigate the nucleation process of nanocrystals synthesized in a solvent.
