By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- A new study on Proteins is now available. According to news reporting originating in Shanghai, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Mn-modified CdTe nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized via a novel, facile method at low temperature. The modified NPs were directly synthesized in aqueous solution by mixing CdCl2 center dot 2.5H(2)O, fresh NaHTe solution, thioglycolic acid (TGA) and MnCl2 center dot 4H(2)O under suitable conditions."
The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from Shanghai University, "Mn-modified CdTe NPs were evaluated as fluorescence probe for bovine serum albumin (BSA) in aqueous solution. Experiment results showed that the fluorescence emission of Mn-modified CdTe NPs was enhanced significantly by BSA, while other substances exhibited no significant effect on NPs. Under the optimal conditions, the response was linearly proportional to the concentration of BSA ranging from 5.0 x 10(-9) to 7.0 x 10(-7) mol/L with detection limit 5.26 x 10(-10) mol/L."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Based on the distinct optical properties of Mn-modified CdTe NPs with BSA, Mn-modified CdTe NPs can be developed as a potential identified fluorescence probe for BSA in aqueous solution."
