A Rapid Interfacial Route to Produce Water Dispersible Nanoparticles
This invention describes a simple direct route by which water-dispersed nano-particles can be prepared.  Water-oil dispersions with nanoparticles, the elemental composition of which allows the attachment of oil-soluble ligands, are shown to undergo a process at the oil-water interface that imparts a water solubility to the particles.  The nanoparticles are photoluminescent in both the oil-soluble and water soluble states.
