Summary of "One-step synthesis of strongly confined, defect-free and hydroxy-terminated ZnO quantum dots."

This paper reports the production of strongly confined ligand-free, defect-free, hydroxy-terminated ZnO quantum dots with a mean diameter of 1.9 nm, by radio frequency atmospheric pressure microplasma. Systematic characterization is performed to understand the surface chemistry of ZnO quantum dots. Photoluminescence studies show strong confinement effect on emission with only ultraviolet (UV) emission without any defect-related visible emission. Emission is again tested after eighteen months and confirms the QDs long-term emission stability. The mechanism responsible for this UV emission is also discussed and originates from OH-related surface terminations.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A phosphoric diester hydrolase that removes 5'-nucleotides from the 3'-hydroxy termini of 3'-hydroxy-terminated OLIGONUCLEOTIDES. It has low activity towards POLYNUCLEOTIDES and the presence of 3'-phosphate terminus on the substrate may inhibit hydrolysis.

A group of hydroxycorticosteroids bearing a hydroxy group at the 17-position. Urinary excretion of these compounds is used as an index of adrenal function. They are used systemically in the free alcohol form, but with esterification of the hydroxy groups, topical effectiveness is increased.

A suspected industrial carcinogen (and listed as such by OSHA). Its N-hydroxy metabolite is strongly carcinogenic and mutagenic.

Rare congenital deformity syndrome characterized by a combination of five anomalies as a result of neural tube defect. The five anomalies are a midline supraumbilical abdominal wall defect (e.g., OMPHALOCELE), a lower STERNUM defect, a congenital intracardiac defect, an anterior DIAPHRAGM defect, and a diaphragmatic PERICARDIUM defect (e.g., PERICARDIAL EFFUSION). Variants with incomplete and variable combinations of the defects are known. ECTOPIA CORDIS; CLEFT LIP; and CLEFT PALATE are often associated with the syndrome.
