A number of procedures are currently available to encapsulate and solubilize hydrophobic semiconductor Quantum Dots (QDs) for biological applications. Most of these procedures are based on the use of small-molecule coordinating ligands, amphiphilic polymers, or amphiphilic lipids. However, it is still not clear how these different surface coating molecules affect the optical, colloidal, and chemical properties of the solubilized QDs. Here we report a systematic study to examine the effects of… CONTINUE READING
