We present a simple route to monodisperse copper sulfide nanocrystals by the hot injection of a series of novel copper(I) xanthate single-source precursors [(PPh3)2Cu(S2COR)] (R = isobutyl, 2-methoxyethyl, 2-ethoxyethyl, 1-methoxy-2-propyl, 3-methoxy-1-butyl, and 3-methoxy-3-methyl-1-butyl), whose crystal structures are also reported. We show that the width of the obtained nanorods is dependent on the length of the xanthate chain, which we rationalize through a computational study.
