Glyco-β-cyclodextrin capped quantum dots: synthesis, cytotoxicity and optical detection of carbohydrate-protein interactions.


Highly fluorescent water soluble glyco-quantum dots were synthesized using a sonochemical procedure. The synthetic approach is based on specific host-guest interactions between β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) and trioctylphosphine oxide (TOPO) surfactant on quantum dots. The modified QDs were analyzed by a combination of FT-IR, (1)H-NOESY NMR spectroscopy and by TEM… (More)
