Stable DHLA–PEG capped PbS quantum dots: from synthesis to near-infrared biomedical imaging (2018)
Journal Article
Zamberlan, F., Turyanska, L., Patanè, A., Liu, Z., Williams, H., Fay, M., …Grabowska, A. (in press). Stable DHLA–PEG capped PbS quantum dots: from synthesis to near-infrared biomedical imaging. Journal of Materials Chemistry B, 6, https://doi.org/10.1039/c7tb02912h

The short shelf-life of water-soluble quantum dots (QDs) due to colloidal instability represents a major drawback to their exploitation. This work examines the colloidal stability of PbS nanoparticles capped with dihydrolipoic acid–polyethylene glyco...

Apoferritin-encapsulated PbS quantum dots significantly inhibit growth of colorectal carcinoma cells (2013)
Journal Article
Bradshaw, T. D., Junor, M., Patanè, A., Clarke, P., Thomas, N. R., Li, M., …Turyanska, L. (2013). Apoferritin-encapsulated PbS quantum dots significantly inhibit growth of colorectal carcinoma cells. Journal of Materials Chemistry B, 45, 6254-6260. https://doi.org/10.1039/c3tb21197e

Colorectal carcinoma (CRC) is the 3rd most common cancer worldwide, thus development of novel therapeutic strategies is imperative. Herein potent, selective dose-dependent antitumor activity of horse spleen apoferritin encapsulated PbS quantum dots (...
