Front Cover: Temperature and Viscosity Dependence of Gold Nanodot Luminescence (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. /2017)
Yujin Jeong, Junhua Yu, Sungmoon Choi
The Front Cover shows that luminescent gold nanodots are sensitive to the viscosity and temperature of the medium. A more rigid medium at a lower temperature induces emission from a higher vibrational excited state, resulting in a brighter emission and a blueshift of the emission peak. In our paper, we demonstrate that cellular matrices can act as viscous environments and that the emission intensity of a gold nanodot is enhanced upon binding to cellular matrices. We thank the Korean National Research Foundation and Seoul National University for their financial support. More information can be found in the Full Paper by J. Yu et al.
