Title: Ligand-exchangeable nanoparticles and methods of making the same

Abstract

An aspect of the present disclosure is a nanocrystal that includes a nanocrystal core and a ligand coordinated to a surface of the nanocrystal core, where the ligand includes a functionalized aromatic molecule. In some embodiments of the present disclosure, the functionalized aromatic molecule may include at least one of cinnamic acid (CAH) and/or a functionalized CAH molecule.
