Dual-emitting quantum dot/carbon nanodot-based nanoprobe for selective and sensitive detection of Fe(3+) in cells

Wang, Chuanxi; Huang, Yijun; Jiang, Kaili; Humphrey, Mark; Zhang, Chi


A novel dual-emitting fluorescence probe is developed for rapid and ultrasensitive detection of Fe(3+). The nanoprobe is prepared by coating CdSe semiconductor quantum dots (SQDs) onto the surface of carbon nanodot (CND) doped TiO2 microspheres. The as-prepared nanoprobe exhibits the corresponding dual emissions at 436 and 596 nm for CNDs and CdSe, respectively, under a single excitation wavelength. The blue fluorescence of the CNDs is insensitive to Fe(3+), whereas the orange emission of the...[Show more]
