Hierarchical self-supported ZnAlEu LDH nanotubes hosting luminescent CdTe quantum dots

Author affiliations

Abstract

Self-supported oligo-layered ZnAlEu LDH nanotubes (∅ 20 nm) self-assemble upon controlled hydrolysis of the metal ions (Zn2+, Al3+, Eu3+) in the presence of 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylate anions and non-ionic worm-like micelles. Their high surface area and easily accessible cylindrical mesopores (175 m2 g−1; 0.75 cm3 g−1) facilitate interaction with 5 nm CdTe quantum dots, enhancing the overall luminescence behavior.
