Abstract

We report that nucleotides disentangle and disperse multiwalled boron nitride nanotubes in aqueous solution via π-π stacking interactions. Quantum dot-boron nitride nanotube hybrid materials were produced by using guanosine 5′-monophosphate as a linking reagent. These hybrid materials are highly promising for biomedical imaging technologies. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
