Abstract :

Recently, two-dimensional (2D) layered nanomaterials have triggered intensive interest due to the intriguing physicochemical properties that stem from a quantum size effect connected with their ultra-thin structure. In particular, 2D molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), as an emerging class of stable inorganic graphene analogs with an intrinsic finite band gap, would possibly complement or even surpass graphene in different fields. In this study, we have used a facile and simple approach for preparing fluorescence molybdenum disulfide surface passivized by polyethylene glycol (PEG-MoS2) using a one-step reaction, pristine molybdenum disulfide and polyethylene glycol as starting materials. Synthesized PEG-MoS2 showed excellent fluorescence properties with blue color emission under the 365 nm UV lamp compared to fluorescence MoS2. The PL quantum yield of the PEG- MoS2 was about 10% which is higher than fluorescence MoS2. According to morphology, the size of PEG-MoS2 is around 50 nm in diameter where MoS2 is less than 10 nm. We also investigated cell uptake study on cells and found our synthesized PEG-MoS2 was successfully taken up in cells. According to in vitro cellular cytotoxicity studies, there is no cytotoxicity in cells at 200 ├?┬╝g/mL concentration of PEG-MoS2. Finally, we can summarize that PEG-MoS2 would be promising material for biomedical applications apart from graphene materials.
