Despite the growing interest of quantum dots (QDs) in biological applications, there are many concerns regarding the potential accumulation and toxic effects of Cd-containing QDs in animals and humans. Zinc oxide QDs are promising alternatives for diagnosis and imaging but their aqueous instability has markedly limited their use. Generations 1, 2 and 3 (noted G1, G2, and G3, respectively) of new poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrons bearing a siloxane group at the focal point were prepared from 3… CONTINUE READING
