Abstract: We report for the first time the use of perylene-3-ylmethanol fluorescent organic nanoparticles as a drug delivery system. In the present system, perylene-3-ylmethanol nanoparticles performed four important roles: (i) “nanocarriers” for drug delivery; (ii) “phototriggers” for the drug release; (iii) fluorescent chromophores for cell imaging; and (iv) detectors for real time-monitoring of drug release. In vitro biological studies revealed that the newly developed perylene-3-ylmethanol nanoparticles exhibit good biocompatibility and cellular uptake as well as efficient photoregulated anticancer drug release ability. Such fluorescent organic nanoparticles may open up new perspectives for designing a new class of promising photoresponsive nanocarriers for drug delivery.
