Spherical boron ligands act as the pathway to achieve rare nanostructures in the Quantum regime, using a simple colloidal synthesis. Quantum Rings and Rods with intense photoluminescent properties can be synthesized in a single step synthesis, opening the door to bulk production of these fascinating nanomaterials, something never achieved before.
