Cyclic Peptide Stabilized Lead Halide Perovskite Nanoparticles
MetadataShow full item record
Combining the unique properties of peptides as versatile tools for nano- and biotechnology with lead halide perovskite nanoparticles can bring exceptional opportunities for the development of optoelectronics, photonics, and bioelectronics. As a first step towards this challenge sub 10 nm methylammonium lead bromide perovskite colloidal nanoparticles have been synthetizes using commercial cyclic peptide Cyclo(RGDFK), containing 5 amino acids, as a surface stabilizer. Perovskite nanoparticles passivated with Cyclo(RGDFK) possess charge transfer from the perovskite core to the peptide shell, resulting in lower photoluminescence quantum yields, which however opens a path for the application where charge transfer is favorable.
