Direct conversion of preprocessed binary semiconductor NCs as template holds the key toward the shape control of hybrid perovskites. Here we report on an innovative route for realizing shape-controlled hybrid organo-halide perovskite NCs from two-dimensional PbS NCs on solid substrates. Rectangular PbI2 NCs are first synthesized by iodination of PbS NCs. Resultant PbI2 NCs are subsequently transformed into the well-defined rectangular hybrid perovskite NCs upon controlled CH3NH3Br exposure. Structural analyses using X-ray absorption fine structure reveal transition of cubic lattice of PbS to hybrid perovskites with a mixture of cubic and tetragonal phases exhibiting a bimodal distribution of shorter Pb-Br and longer Pb-I bonds around an immediate neighboring lead absorber within the first coordination shell. This direct all anion exchange reaction route opens up new strategies, for the fabrication of shape-controlled perovskite NCs on flexible substrates from suitable existing binary NCs as template for optoelectronic application
