Spectroscopic studies on the interaction between human hemoglobin and CdS quantum dots.

The interaction between human adult hemoglobin (Hb) and bare CdS quantum dots (QDs) was investigated by fluorescence, synchronous fluorescence, circular dichroism (CD), and Raman spectroscopic techniques under physiological pH 7.43. The intrinsic fluorescence of Hb is statically quenched by CdS QDs. The quenching obeys the Stern-Volmer equation, with an… CONTINUE READING
