- Water-soluble quantum dots for biomedical applicationsWilliam W Yu
Department of Chemistry, Rice University, Houston, TX 77005, USA
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 348:781-6. 2006..Here, we discuss the recent development in making water-soluble quantum dots and related cytotoxicity for biomedical applications...
- Forming biocompatible and nonaggregated nanocrystals in water using amphiphilic polymersWilliam W Yu
Department of Chemistry, Rice University, Houston, Texas 77005, USA
J Am Chem Soc 129:2871-9. 2007..In the particular case of semiconductor nanocrystals (e.g., quantum dots), the materials in water have the same optical spectra as well as quantum yield as those formed initially in organic solutions...
- Evaluation of quantum dot cytotoxicity based on intracellular uptakeEmmanuel Chang
Rice University, Department of Bioengineering MS-142, PO Box 1892, Houston, TX 77251-1892, USA
Small 2:1412-7. 2006
- A multiplexed separation of iron oxide nanocrystals using variable magnetic fieldsJohn T Mayo
Rice University, Chemistry, 6500 Main Street, Houston, Texas 77030, United States
Nanoscale 3:4560-3. 2011..By varying the magnetic field strength, four populations of magnetic materials were isolated from a mixture. This separation is most effective for nanocrystals with diameters between 4 and 16 nm...
- Protease-activated quantum dot probesEmmanuel Chang
Rice University, Department of Bioengineering MS-142, P.O. Box 1892, Houston, TX 77251-1892, USA
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 334:1317-21. 2005..Initial studies observed a 52% rise in luminescence over 47 h of exposure to 0.2 mg/mL collagenase. These probes can be customized for targeted degradation simply by changing the sequence of the peptide linker...
