Abstract PbS nanocrystals were synthesized directly in the conducting polymer, poly (3 -hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl). Transmission electron microscopy shows that the PbS nanocrystals are faceted and relatively uniform in size with a mean size of 10 nm. FFT analysis of the atomic lattice planes observed in TEM and selected area electron diffraction confirm that the nanocrystals have the PbS rock salt structure. The synthesis conditions are explored to show control over the aggregation of PbS nanocrystals in the thiophene conducting polymer.
