Aminated Graphene Quantum Dots‚ Solution‚ CAS NO.: 7440-44-0

Product Detail

CAS NO.: 7440-44-0

Graphene quantum dots (GQDs) are nanoscale fragments of single- or multilayer graphene. GQDs demonstrate a number of exciting properties that make them attractive for energy, biological, optical, and environmental applications. These properties include low toxicity, chemical stability, photoluminescent stability, high transparency, a high surface area, and pronounced quantum confinement effects. The presence of quantum confinement effects means that GQDs, unlike graphene, contain a bandgap, which increases their versatility. GQDs also have four quantum states at any given energy level; semiconductor quantum dots only have two. The additional quantum states open up the possibility for use of GQDs in quantum computing.

Aminated graphene quantum dots from ACS Material are produced via the hydrothermal method. They are one of many exciting and innovative graphene quantum dot products offered by ACS Material. All our advanced nanomaterials, including aminated GQDs, are produced to meet the highest standards of quality and consistency.

Application Fields

Graphene quantum dots exhibit unique optical and electronic properties due to their quantum confinement and edge effects‚ and have a variety of novel applications‚ such as low-toxicity and photostable fluorescence probes for cell imaging and biosensing‚ low-cost acceptors for organic photovoltaic cells and light emitting diodes‚ a metal-free platform for surface-enhanced Raman scattering‚ and an upconverted sensitizer for modifying rutile TiO2 nanocrystals as a composite visible-light photocatalyst.

1. Are the Aminated Graphene Quantum Dots positively or negatively charged on the surface?

Aminated Graphene Quantum Dots have negative charges. Aminated Graphene Quantum Dots are modified on the surface to provide positive charge. However, the surface contains not only amino groups, but also carboxyl and hydroxyl groups. These negative charged groups do not fully participate in the reaction, so the surface indicates a negative charge.
