Benzenethiol Ligand Study

Good Essays
In this study, the effect of benzenethiol ligand on CdSe/ZnS core/shell quantum dots was investigated. Conventional long-chain oleic acid (OA) and trioctylphosphine (TOP) capping ligands were partially replaced by short benzenethiol ligands, and the improvement in the luminescence performance was observed in quantum dot light emitting diodes (QD-LED). Approximately 1.8 fold improvement was achieved for both the maximum luminance and maximum current efficiency for the QD-LEDs fabricated with bezenethiol ligand QDs. The turn-on voltage was reduced by ∼0.6 V by shifting the energy level of QDs with the benzenethiol ligands when compared to the conventional OA and TOP ligands. The mobility of the QD film approximately doubled to 2.42 x 10-5 cm2/V·S …show more content…
1-Octadecene (45 mL) was injected as a noncoordinating solvent into the flask at 150 °C and heated to 310 °C under N2 environment, yielding a clear solution of Cd(OA)2 and Zn(OA)2. At the elevated temperature of 300 °C, 0.6 mmol of Se and 12 mmol of S dissolved in 12 mL trioctylphosphine (TOP) was injected into the vessel containing Cd(OA)2 and Zn(OA)2. The reaction proceeded for 10 min for chemically graded CdSe@ZnS QDs. Benzenethiol solutions (5 to 20 mmol) were introduced in 20 mL vials for ligand exchange, and the solutions were stirred during 24 h, followed by injecting 20 mL hexane in each bezenethiol ligand exchanged CdSe@ZnS solutions. These solutions were centrifuged 12,000rpm for 10min to remove the by-product which are not soluble in hexane solvent. The resulting QDs solutions were purified thrice by precipitation and centrifugation with a solvent combination of hexane and anhydrous ethanol (1:4 volume ratio) by centrifugation (10,000 rpm, 10 min), Finally, the benzenethiol-capped QDs were dispersed in hexane at 10 mg/mL.

Synthesis of ZnO NPs
ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized from zinc acetate dehydrate and tetramethyl-ammonium hydroxide (TMAH) for electron transfer layers. TMAH in ethanol was dropped at a rate of 1mL/min into 0.1 M zincacetate dihydrate in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), and this solution was stirred for an hour at 4 °C. The ZnO nanoparticles were collected by centrifugation at 10,000 rpm for 10 min and dispersed in 25 mL ethanol.[16]

    A stir bar was added into the flask containing isoborneol, and the flask was attached to a ring stand to rest on top of a magnetic stirrer device. In consistent drops, 0.63 mL of glacial acetic was added and the reaction had a pH of 2, which was measured with pH indicator paper. Then, 0.50 mL of 10% w/v sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution was added, and the reagents were reacted for three minutes. Shortly after, 5.13 mL of 10% w/v NaOCl was added incrementally with a Pasteur pipet for about ten minutes. A thermocouple was periodically placed on the outside of the flask to make sure that the mixture did not reach past 50 °C.…
