Modulation of the solubility of luminescent semiconductor nanocrystals through facile surface functionalization

Author affiliations

Abstract

The solubility of luminescent quantum dots in solvents from hexane to water can be finely tuned by the choice of the countercations associated with carboxylate residues present on the nanocrystal surface. The resulting nanocrystals exhibit long term colloidal and chemical stability and maintain their photophysical properties.
