Monodisperse iron oxide nanocrystals were synthesized by a simplified method using iron chloride as precursor. In the presence of Cl ions, the as-produced iron oxide nanocrystals preferred a cubic shape with {100} facets exposed. The function of halogens including Cl and Br ions on stabilizing {100} facets of spinel structured iron oxides, rather than the regulation of thermolysis kinetics and surfactants, was found influential on the shape control of nanocubes in this organic phase approach. The synthesis can be also extended for cobalt ferrite nanocubes and cobalt oxide polyhedrons. FAU - Xu, Zhichuan
