- ... One barrier to the application of current tri-octylphosphine oxide (TOPO) based quantum dots (QDs) for biomedical imaging is that the TOPO on TOPO-QDs can be replaced by the proteins in living system, which may cause the degradation of QDs and/or deactivation of protein. In order to develop biocompatible optical imaging agents, a novel triblock copolymer, designed as a multidentate ligand, was syn ...
