Journal Article
Thapa, S., Bhardwaj, K., Basel, S., Pradhan, S., Eling, C. J., Adawi, A. M., …Tamang, S. (in press). Long-term ambient air-stable cubic CsPbBr3 perovskite quantum dots using molecular bromine. Nanoscale advances, https://doi.org/10.1039/c9na00486f

We report unprecedented phase stability of cubic CsPbBr3 quantum dots in ambient air obtained by using Br2 as halide precursor. Mechanistic investigation reveals the decisive role of temperature-controlled in situ generated, oleylammonium halide spec...

Polyfunctionalised nanoparticles bearing robust gadolinium surface units for high relaxivity performance in MRI (2019)
Journal Article
Nicolas, C., Wenzel, M., Perry, H., Yoon, I., Molisso, S., Stasiuk, G., …Wilton-Ely, J. (in press). Polyfunctionalised nanoparticles bearing robust gadolinium surface units for high relaxivity performance in MRI. Chemistry : a European journal, https://doi.org/10.1002/chem.201901820

The first example of an octadentate gadolinium unit based on DO3A (hydration number q = 1) with a dithiocarbamate tether has been designed and attached to the surface of gold nanoparticles (around 4.4 nm in diameter). In addition to the superior robu... Read More about Polyfunctionalised nanoparticles bearing robust gadolinium surface units for high relaxivity performance in MRI.

Synthesis of super bright indium phosphide colloidal quantum dots through thermal diffusion (2019)
Journal Article
Clarke, M. T., Viscomi, F. N., Chamberlain, T. W., Hondow, N., Adawi, A. M., Sturge, J., …Stasiuk, G. J. (2019). Synthesis of super bright indium phosphide colloidal quantum dots through thermal diffusion. Communications Chemistry, 2(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s42004-019-0138-z

Indium phosphide based quantum dots have emerged in recent years as alternatives to traditional heavy metal (cadmium, lead) based materials suitable for biomedical application due to their non-toxic nature. The major barrier to this application, is t... Read More about Synthesis of super bright indium phosphide colloidal quantum dots through thermal diffusion.
