This work presents a novel approach to producing water soluble manganese-doped core/shell ZnS/ZnS quantum dots (ZnS:Mn/ZnS). The Mn-doped ZnS core was prepared through a nucleation doping strategy and a ZnS shell was grown on ZnS:Mn d-dots by decomposition of Zn(2+)-3-mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) complexes at 100 °C. It was found that the Mn2+(4)T1→6A1(More)
Apparent electrostatic persistence lengths (i.e., those found by substituting the perturbed for the unperturbed mean-square gyration radius in the wormlike chain theory) obtained from static light scattering for variably ionized acrylamideJsodium acrylate copolymers varied approximately as the inverse square root of the ionic strength, C,, and linearly with(More)
Relatively monodisperse and highly luminescent Mn(2+)-doped zinc blende ZnSe nanocrystals were synthesized in aqueous solution at 100 °C using the nucleation-doping strategy. The effects of the experimental conditions and of the ligand on the synthesis of nanocrystals were investigated systematically. It was found that there were significant effects of(More)
In this paper, an aqueous-based route has been developed to prepare highly luminescent glutathione (GSH)-capped Mn-doped ZnS quantum dots (QDs). The dots obtained have an average diameter of 4.3 nm and exhibit the Mn(2+)-related orange luminescence with very low surface defect density. The highest photoluminescence was observed for a Mn(2+) to Zn(2+) molar(More)
A simple methodology for encapsulating ca. 10 nm-sized superparamagnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles in zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIF-8) crystals was developed. The corresponding Fe3O4@ZIF-8 heterostructured material exhibits bifunctional properties with both high magnetization (Fe3O4) and high thermal stability, large specific surface, and catalytic(More)
3-Aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (APTMS) was used as ligand to prepare ZnO@APTMS, Cu(2+)-doped ZnO (ZnO:Cu@APTMS) and ZnO quantum dots (QDs) with chemisorbed Cu(2+) ions at their surface (ZnO@APTMS/Cu). The dots have a diameter of ca. 5 nm and their crystalline and phase purities and composition were established by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron(More)
Alloyed CuInZn x S2+x (ZCIS) quantum dots (QDs) were successfully associated to ZnO nanoparticles by a thermal treatment at 400 °C for 15 min. The ZnO/ZCIS composite was characterized by TEM, SEM, XRD, XPS and UV-vis absorption spectroscopy. ZCIS QDs, with an average diameter of ≈4.5 nm, were found to be homogeneously distributed at the surface of ZnO(More)
CdSe nanorods (NRs) with an average length of ≈120 nm were prepared by a solvothermal process and associated to TiO2 nanoparticles (Aeroxide® P25) by annealing at 300 °C for 1 h. The content of CdSe NRs in CdSe/TiO2 composites was varied from 0.5 to 5 wt %. The CdSe/TiO2 heterostructured materials were characterized by XRD, TEM, SEM, XPS, UV–visible(More)
Ce-doped ZnO (ZnO:Ce) nanorods have been prepared through a solvothermal method and the effects of Ce-doping on the structural, optical and electronic properties of ZnO rods were studied. ZnO:Ce rods were characterized by XRD, SEM, TEM, XPS, BET, DRS and Raman spectroscopy. 5% Ce-doped ZnO rods with an average length of 130 nm and a diameter of 23 nm(More)
Luminescent ZnO nanocrystals were synthesized by basic hydrolysis of Zn(OAc)(2) in the presence of oleic acid and then functionalized with (poly)aminotrimethoxysilanes in the presence of tetramethylammonium hydroxide to render the QDs water-dispersible. The highest photoluminescence quantum yield (17%) was achieved using(More)
