CdSe/poly(butyl acrylate) nanocomposites were synthesized by in situ miniemulsion polymerization. The hybrid nanomaterial is very stable and presents a bright green photoluminescence at 2.29 eV under ultraviolet excitation. With the excitation conditions used the intensity of the emission band keeps nearly constant from 7 K to room temperature. The morphological, structural and room temperature electrical properties of the CdSe/poly(butyl acrylate) nanocomposite have been investigated.
