© 2018 Académie des sciences Well-dispersed roughly spherical nano-objects of the molecule-based superconductor κ-(BEDT-TTF)2Cu(NCS)2 have been prepared in an organic solution by using an easy synthetic route. Long alkyl-chain aconitate esters have been used as growth controlling agents. Nano-objects exhibiting sizes in the 35–120 nm range are made of aggregated individual smaller nanoparticles ranging from 3 to 10 nm. Nanoparticle powders have been studied by X-ray diffraction, high resolution electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy in the conductivity mode.
