Efficient functionalization of aqueous CdSe/ZnS nanocrystals using small-molecule chemical activators

Author affiliations

Abstract

Small molecular reagents that can efficiently functionalize water soluble CdSe/ZnS nanocrystals (NCs) are reported. These reagents do not cause quenching or precipitation of NCs as seen with commercially available activators. The results demonstrate that controlling the electrostatic character of the materials is critical in the design of functionalization schemes.
