Investigations on the photoinduced interaction of water soluble thioglycolic acid (TGA) capped CdTe quantum dots with certain porphyrins.

The photoinduced interaction of TGA capped CdTe quantum dots (QDs) with porphyrins such as meso-tetrakis(4-sulfonatophenyl)porphyrin [TSPP], meso-tetrakis(4-carboxyphenyl)porphyrin [TCPP], meso-tetrakis (4-N-methylpyridyl)porphyrin [TMPyP] and meso-tetraphenylporphyrin [TPP] has been studied by using absorption, steady state and time resolved fluorescence… (More)
