Abstract

For additional use in industry and biomedicine, water-soluble Cu 2 + -doped ZnS quantum dots (QDs) ( Zn S : Cu ) were synthesized with thioglycolic acid (TGA) as the stabilizer in aqueous solutions in air. The products were characterized by x-ray diffraction, ultraviolet–visible spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and photoluminescence. The effect of Cu 2 + doping concentration and TGA / ( Zn + Cu ) molar ratio on crystal structures and the luminescent intensity of Zn S : Cu QDs have been investigated. As a result, The as-prepared Zn S : Cu QDs had diameters of 10 12 nm and a sphere monodisperse form that consists of Zn S : Cu nanoparticles of approximately 2 nm . The optimum Cu 2 + doping concentration and TGA / ( Zn + Cu ) molar ratio were obtained when the photoluminescent emission showed a maximum value.
