A polyelectrolyte architecture was fabricated that was composed of chitosan and organophosphorus hydrolase polycations along with thioglycolic acid-capped CdSe quantum dots (QDs) as the polyanion. This film was imaged by epifluorescence microscopy. UV-vis and emission spectroscopies were used to monitor the growth of the bilayer film due to the enhanced optical property of QDs. Photoluminescence of the functionalized QDs improved when sandwiched between the polycations layers. The presence of organophosphorus compounds was confirmed through photoluminescence spectroscopy.
