Colloidal Crystallization of Surfactant‐Free ZnO Quantum Dots Academic Article uri icon


  • Surfactant-free ZnO quantum dots self-assemble into three-dimensional colloidal crystals in an organic solvent via ionic-strength tuning. The crystalline structure is macroscopically large, transparent, stable and shields UV as bulk ZnO upon solvent removal. Copyright © 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim.
