Quantum dots with impermeable shell: A powerful tool for nanoengineering

Depending on their applications, quantum dots need to be tailored in terms of their structure and properties. Chemists have shown that quantum dots obtained by their novel method can be successfully functionalized with modern click chemistry. This achievement is of interest not only due to the numerous potential applications, but also because in hitherto experiments copper compounds used as catalyst in click reactions have always destroyed the ability of quantum dots to emit light.
