Abstract

We report the design and synthesis of Ir-complex functionalized CdSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs), in which the QD plays a key role in imaging, while the Ir-complex acts as a sensitizer to produce singlet oxygen; this conceptual design presents a novel scheme in both bio-imaging and photodynamic therapy.
