The first steps in the synthesis of nanostructures are followed through UV-Vis and correlated with photoluminescence and images taken by SEM and TEM. Colloids permit the control in the atomic arrangement and the formation of nanostructures used to build cluster of materials. The size of the cluster in the colloid is around 5 nm. After the formation of the colloid a hydrothermal growth and microwave heating allows the formation of an ensemble of nano-sheet. This work is aim in the direction to controls the synthesis and the properties of materials with potential applications as active optical materials.
