Nanosized CdS particles of ≤6 nm average diameter are prepared at ambient conditions by use of controlled hydrolysis of P2S5 in absolute ethanol initiated by addition of an alcoholic Cd(NO3)2·4H2O solution, resulting in an excitonic absorption peak of the particles at 350 nm corresponding to a LUMO-HOMO gap energy of 3.1 eV.
