Mn-Doped Quinary Ag–In–Ga–Zn–S Quantum Dots for Dual-Modal Imaging

Abstract : Doping of transition metals within a semiconductor quantum dot (QD) has a high impact on the optical and magnetic properties of the QD. In this study, we report the synthesis of Mn 2+-doped Ag−In−Ga−Zn−S (Mn:AIGZS) QDs via thermolysis of a dithiocarbamate complex of Ag + , In 3+ , Ga 3+ , and Zn 2+ and of Mn(stearate) 2 in oleylamine. The influence of the Mn 2+ loading on the photoluminescence (PL) and magnetic properties of the dots are investigated. Mn:AIGZS QDs exhibit a diameter of ca. 2 nm, a high PL quantum yield (up to 41.3% for a 2.5% doping in Mn 2+), and robust photo-and colloidal stabilities. The optical properties of Mn:AIGZS QDs are preserved upon transfer into water using the glutathione tetramethylammonium ligand. At the same time, Mn:AIGZS QDs exhibit high relaxivity (r 1 = 0.15 mM −1 s −1 and r 2 = 0.57 mM −1 s −1 at 298 K and 2.34 T), which shows their potential applicability for bimodal PL/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) probes.
