Near-infrared Absorbing Amphiphilic Semiconducting Polymers for Photoacoustic Imaging
Date of Issue2017
School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering
Development of photoacoustic (PA) imaging agents is crucial to advancing PA imaging in biology and medicine. In this study, we report the design and synthesis of near-infrared (NIR) absorbing amphiphilic semiconducting polymers that can spontaneously self-assemble into homogeneous water-soluble nanoparticles for PA imaging of tumor in living mice.
