Nanocrystalline InP and InAs were solvothermally synthesized by the reaction of newly reduced indium with triphenylphosphine (PPh<SUB>3</SUB>) and triphenylarsine (AsPh<SUB>3</SUB>) in benzene. The products were characterized by XRD, TEM, and EDX. PPh<SUB>3</SUB> and AsPh<SUB>3</SUB> with high safety as excellent P and As sources will provide a novelly alternative synthetic route to III–V semiconductor compouds.
