CdS magic-sized nanocrystals (MSNs) exhibiting both band gap absorption and emission at 378 nm with a narrow bandwidth of approximately 9 nm and quantum yield (QY) of approximately 10% (total QY… Continue Reading
Liposomes are ideal drug-delivery systems because they can alter the pharmacokinetic characteristics and biodistribution profile of the incorporated bioactive molecule. The effect of the… Continue Reading
Clusters of iron oxide nanoparticles encapsulated in a pH-responsive hydrogel are synthesized and studied for their ability to alter the T(2)-relaxivity of protons. Encapsulation of the clusters with… Continue Reading
Coumarin was found to form stable inclusion complexes with cucurbiturils. In the presence of cucurbituril (CB), 1 : 1 inclusion complexes were observed in aqueous solution, as monitored by (1)H… Continue Reading
Cucurbit[n]urils (CB[n], n = 5–8) have been prepared, separated, and purified, and the structure of their solid state assemblies has been addressed. A number of general features were identified which… Continue Reading
Metal-free cucurbituril and cucurbituril hydrate crystals present water-filled channels consisting of perfectly aligned one-dimensional macrocycle nanotubes.
The manuscript addresses the synthesis and characterization of one colloidal CdSe single-sized nanocrystal ensemble exhibiting bandgap absorption and emission peaking at 463 and 465 nm, respectively,… Continue Reading
One brand-new colloidal ensemble of single-sized CdTe nanocrystals, exhibiting a sharp first excitonic absorption peak at 427 nm and bright bandgap photoluminescence at 427 nm with narrow full width… Continue Reading
High-quality colloidal photoluminescent CdS quantum dots (QDs) were synthesized via a noninjection one-pot approach in noncoordinating solvent 1-octadecene. This synthetic approach uses cadmium… Continue Reading
Highly-photoluminescent ZnSe quantum dots with 72% quantum yield and 22 nm full width at half maximum were synthesized with more reactive precursors via a non-injection approach with high synthetic… Continue Reading
