The thermolysis reaction of a dual precursor system, comprising one that promotes a controlled nucleation event to produce a rod-shaped nanocrystal template, and the other introduced through a subsequent series of injections that maintain the reaction under kinetic drive, is shown to provide a means of controlling growth of CdSe nanorods with a pre-determined aspect ratio.
