Dendrimer-Nanocrystal Building Blocks

Optimum function of plasmonic nanocrystal in assembly requires precision control of separation.

Often, larger separations are desired while still maintaining order.

With our COMPASS collaborators, Hough and Donnio, IRG-4 has developed a new class of building blocks that incorporate dendrimer ligands.

Dendrimer-nanocrystal building blocks have diameters controlled by dendrimer “generation.”
