ABSTRACT

Unlabelled: CdS nanoparticles have a great potential for application in chemical research, bioscience and medicine. The aim of this study was to develop an efficient and environmentally-friendly method of plant-based biosynthesis of CdS quantum dots using hairy root culture of Linaria maroccana L. By incubating Linaria root extract with inorganic cadmium sulfate and sodium sulfide we synthesized stable luminescent CdS nanocrystals with absorption peaks for UV-visible spectrometry at 362 nm, 398 nm and 464 nm, and luminescent peaks at 425, 462, 500 nm. Transmission electron microscopy of produced quantum dots revealed their spherical shape with a size predominantly from 5 to 7 nm. Electron diffraction pattern confirmed the wurtzite crystalline structure of synthesized cadmium sulfide quantum dots. These results describe the first successful attempt of quantum dots synthesis using plant extract.

Fig3: Particle size distribution histogram determined from the TEM images. The histogram illustrated number of particles that were in the field of view of the transmission electron microscope. Total number of nanoparticles was 305.

Mentions: Transmission electron microscopy analysis allowed to investigate the shape of produced CdS nanoparticles and their size distribution. For such measurements 0.5 mL of the colloidal solution of CdS nanoparticles was deposited onto carbon coated grids. Typical electron micrographs are represented in Figures 1 and 2.The particle size distribution histogram determined from TEM micrographs is shown in Figure 3. Total number of nanoparticles for particle size histogram is 305 ones per field of view. It was found that the average particle size was 5.5 – 6.9 nm as well as there was a large amount of nanoparticles with a diameter of 2–5 nm. The smallest size of quantum dots corresponded to 7–8.5 nm. In addition according to electron microscopy data, it was established that synthesized nanoparticles were elliptic or spherical in shape and did not have significant surface defects.The absorption spectrum of CdS nanoparticles demonstrated two clear maxima and plangent structure in the interval between these peaks (Figure 4). Total synthesized spectrum is shown in Figure 3 by dashed line. It was revealed that centers of absorption peaks corresponded to the wavelengths 362 nm, 398 nm and 464 nm.Figure 1
