Multifunctional colloids with optical, magnetic, and superhydrophobic properties derived from nucleophilic substitution-induced layer-by-layer assembly in organic media.


We demonstrate the successful preparation of multifunctional silica colloids by coating with 2-bromo-2-methylpropionic acid (BMPA)-stabilized quantum dots (BMPA-QDs) and BMPA-stabilized iron oxide particles (BMPA-Fe(3)O(4)), along with amine-functionalized poly(amidoamine) (PAMA) dendrimers, using layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly based on a nucleophilic… (More)
