Findings from W. Wang et al Update Understanding of Nanofibers (Self-Replication Fabrication of Ligand-Free CdSe Quantum Dots on a Nanofiber Microreactor via a Solid-Liquid Interfacial Method)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Fresh data on Nanofibers are presented in a new report. According to news reporting originating in Nanjing, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "In this work, we present the self-replication fabrication of oil-soluble and ligand-free CdSe quantum dots (QDs) via a 'solid liquid interface' method using electrospun nanofibrous mats as the microreactor. The electrospun sodium alginate-based nanofibers with the cadmium source act as the solid phase, while octadecene containing selenium in trioctylphosphine as the Se source serves as the liquid phase."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research, "After reacting on the nanofibrous microreactor, the as-prepared CdSe QDs without using any ligands are released from the microreactor, presenting a monodispersion with a mean diameter of similar to 3 nm along with good fluorescent properties (lambda(em) = 620 nm). ZnSe QDs could also be prepared in the same manner, indicating this self-replication method to have wide suitability for the construction of QDs via this solid-liquid interface microreactor."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "For practice, we further applied the CdSe QDs as fluorescent inks for versatile printing of luminescent patterns toward anticounterfeit and optoelectronic applications."
