New Process for Synthesis of Quantum Dots (QDs)

Current Context: Agharkar Research Institute (ARI), Pune has come up with the development of a new process for the synthesis of quantum efficient and biocompatible quantum dots (QDs).
New Process for Synthesis of Quantum Dots (QDs)

  • The process is used to capture images of cellular organelles and processes within the visible wavelength ranges across the electromagnetic spectrum.
  • The traditional process for the synthesis of QDsis vulnerable to photobleaching, which has a low signal intensity, and overlapping spectra which restrict their use, particularly in multispectral bioimaging.
  • Therefore the newly developed process overcomes these issues.
  • In the new process, the QDs are rendered as biocompatible by coating with silicone which provides enhanced quantum efficiency and photostability.
  • This will pave the way for cost-efficient production of monodispersed, quantum efficient, photostable, and biocompatible quantum dots that might serve as an excellent alternative to traditional fluorophores.
