pH-sensitive and biodegradable charge-transfer nanocomplex for second near-infrared photoacoustic tumor imaging
The emerging photoacoustic imaging (PAI), especially in the NIR window, offers reliable sensing for deep-penetration and high-resolution closing to clinical requirements. However, the contrast agents that are capable of ...
Activatable Photoacoustic Nanoprobes for In Vivo Ratiometric Imaging of Peroxynitrite
Organic semiconducting nanoprobes doped with bulky borane can undergo specific activation by ONOO− even at tumor-relevant acidic pH (6.8), permitting in vivo ratiometric photoacoustic imaging of ONOO− in the tumor environment ...
Amphiphilic semiconducting polymer as multifunctional nanocarrier for fluorescence/photoacoustic imaging guided chemo-photothermal therapy
Chemo-photothermal nanotheranostics has the advantage of synergistic therapeutic effect, providing opportunities for optimized cancer therapy. However, current chemo-photothermal nanotheranostic systems generally comprise ...
Self-quenched semiconducting polymer nanoparticles for amplified in vivo photoacoustic imaging
Development of photoacoustic (PA) imaging agents provides opportunities for advancing PA imaging in fundamental biology and medicine. Despite the promise of semiconducting polymer nanoparticles (SPNs) for PA imaging, the ...
Compact Plasmonic Blackbody for Cancer Theranosis in the Near-Infrared II Window
We have developed a class of blackbody materials, i.e., hyperbranched Au plasmonic blackbodies (AuPBs), of compact sizes (<50 nm). The AuPBs were prepared in a seedless and surfactant-free approach based on the use of ...
Light-driven liquid metal nanotransformers for biomedical theranostics
Room temperature liquid metals (LMs) represent a class of emerging multifunctional materials with attractive novel properties. Here, we show that photopolymerized LMs present a unique nanoscale capsule structure characterized ...
