Abstract
In this work, colloidal CdTe nanoparticles were synthesized by using thioglycolic acid (TGA) as passivator. In the absorption spectra of the colloidal CdTe nanoparticles exciton band was found to be shifted to higher photon energy as compared with bulk crystals due to quantum confinement effect. It was shown that addition of human serum albumin (HSA) to colloidal CdTe nanoparticles led to a gradual decrease of absorption and broadening of exciton structure. However, energy position of the exciton band in this case remains not shifted. In photoluminescence spectra of solution CdTe quantum dots and HSA so-called quenching effect has been observed. The quenching of HSA fluorescence intensity by semiconductor nanoparticles was analysed in framework of the formation of quantum dots-HSA protein complex.
