Herein, multifunctional Fe@γ-Fe2 O3 @H-TiO2 nanocomposites (NCs) with multilayer-structure are synthesized by one-step hydrogen reduction, which show remarkably improved magnetic and photoconversion effects as a promising generalists for photocatalysis, bioimaging, and photothermal therapy (PTT). Hydrogenation is used to turn white TiO2 in to hydrogenated TiO2 (H-TiO2 ), thus improving the absorption in the Vis-NIR region. Based on the excellent solar-driven photocatalytic activities of the H-TiO2 shell, the Fe@γ-Fe2 O3 magnetic core is introduced to make it convenient for separating and recovering the catalytic agents. More importantly, Fe@γ-Fe2 O3 @H-TiO2 NCs show enhanced photothermal conversion efficiency due to more circuit loops for electron transitions between H-TiO2 and γ-Fe2 O3 , and the electronic structures of Fe@γ-Fe2 O3 @H-TiO2 NCs are calculated using the Vienna ab initio simulation package based on the density functional theory to account for the results. The reported core-shell NCs can serve as an NIR-responsive photothermal agent for magnetic-targeted photothermal therapy and as a multimodal imaging probe for cancer including infrared photothermal imaging, magnetic resonance imaging, and photoacoustic imaging.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/143685||ISSN:||1521-4095||DOI:||10.1002/adma.201706747||Rights:||© 2018 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
