Stable colloidal solutions of ZnCdS nanoparticles (3–6 nm in diameter) in polyvinyl alcohol, polyethylene glycol, and H2O are produced. The size of the synthesized nanoparticles is independent of the relation between precursors. It is shown that stabilization of the particles is defined by the charge-stability factor and can be attained without any additional stabilizing additives. The ZnCdS quantum dots synthesized emit in a wide spectral range from 450 to 600 nm.
