The chemical synthesis of nanocrystals associated to the study of quantum size effects on II/VI semiconductor compounds has been investigated extensively. Considerable advances in the use of chemical procedures to produce II/VI semiconductor quantum dots have been made and recent strategies to produce such materials will be reviewed here. This review is structured using a tentative classification for the most used solution chemical methods applied to II/VI semiconducting dots. Current progress on the enhancement of physical properties of these materials using chemical approaches will be reviewed.
