Stable Ag nanoclusters-based nano-sensors: Rapid sonochemical synthesis and detecting Pb2+ in living cells

Wang, Chuanxi; Wu, Jiapeng; Jiang, Kaili; Humphrey, Mark; Zhang, Chi


The preparation and applications of fluorescent Ag nanoclusters (AgNCs) have been developed rapidly. However, the poor stability and time-consuming in synthesis process limit their further application. Herein, a rapid sonochemical route is used to synthesize fluorescent AgNCs using hydrazine hydrate as reducing agent and glutathione (GSH) as capping agent. The AgNCs would be formed quickly (∼15 min) due to presence of ultrasonic wave, which show red fluorescence (λem = 645 nm), small size (∼2...[Show more]
