Nitric oxide (NO) donor compounds are primarily monofunctional in that they release NO under the requisite conditions. To detect the amount and duration of NO released, subsequent analysis methods are required. It would be advantageous if a NO donor compound could both release and detect NO at the same time. This would eliminate potential errors in the analysis. In this paper, novel cadmium telluride quantum dots (CdTe QD)-carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCS) nanocomposite NO donors, including both… CONTINUE READING
