A facile route to CdTe nanoparticles and their use in bio-labelling

Author affiliations

Abstract

A simple synthetic route to highly luminescent, water-soluble CdTe nanoparticles and their use in biological imaging is presented. The new synthetic pathway utilises a simply-prepared, water-soluble tellurium precursor which is easily handled and stored and the resulting growth processes are discussed.
