In this article, we firstly synthesized oil-soluble PbS quantum dots (QDs) emitting in the near-infrared (NIR) spectral range through a two-phase method, which exhibit a conveniently tunable photoluminescence (PL) emission (from ~750 to 872 nm) with a narrow PL bandwidth, as well as a high (up to 40%) PL quantum yield (QY). Next, the as-prepared oil-soluble(More)
Ultra-small gold nanoclusters (Au NCs) are highly promising materials for tumor imaging and therapy because of their low toxicity, intrinsic fluorescence, and the availability of multifunctional groups for covalent linkage of diverse bioactive molecules. Au NCs stabilized by bovine serum albumin (BSA) were prepared via an improved "green" synthetic routine.(More)
A novel near infrared fluorescent probe, l-methyl-methionine (Met)–ICG-Der-02, was synthesized and characterized for in vivo imaging of tumors and early diagnosis of cancers. Met was conjugated with ICG-Der-02 dye through the amide bond function by ethyl-3-(3-dimethyllaminopropyl) carbodiimide hydrochloride/N-hydroxysuccinimide catalysis chemistry.(More)
