As electrochemical [48] and microwave irradiation techniques [49–52]. Nonetheless, those with high QY are almost exclusively synthesized by a high-temperature organometallic route using the popular hot-injection method [34]. As an example of early II–VI QD synthesis [31], CdO, trioctylphosphine oxide (TOPO), hexylphosphonic acid (HPA), and tetradecylphosphonic acid (TDPA) were loaded in a three-neck flask. At about 300°C, a reddish CdO powder was dissolved and generated a colorless homogeneous solution.
