Silicon Carbide Quantum Dots for bioimaging

1-5 nm SiC nanocrystals were tested in vitro. The cytotoxic properties of the SiC QDs based on alamarBlueTM assay cells were studied. The presence of the QDs dots does not affect cell growth in a wide concentration range. Two-photon excitation showed significant response from SiC nanocrystals that were injected into hippocampal CA1 pyramidal cells.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at

Dr. András Paszternák, founder of Nanopaprika
