Compared with organic fluorophores, semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) have the better properties such as photostability, narrow emission spectra coupled to tunable photoluminescent emissions and exceptional resistance to both photo bleaching and chemical degradation. In this work, CdSe/ZnS QDs nanobeads were prepared by the incorporation of CdSe/ZnS QDs with mesoporous silica to use as the optical probe for detecting toxic and bio- materials with high sensitivity, CdSe/ZnS core/shell QDs were synthesized from the precursors such as CdO and zinc stéarate with the lower toxicity than pyrotic precursors. The QD-nanobeads were characterized by transmission electron microscopy, FL microscopy, UV-Vis and PL spectroscopy, respectively.
