Ambient Aqueous Synthesis of Ultrasmall PEGylated Cu2-x Se Nanoparticles as a Multifunctional Theranostic Agent for Multimodal Imaging Guided Photothermal Therapy of Cancer.


PMID 27560922

Abstract

Ultrasmall PEGylated Cu2-x Se nanoparticles with strong near-infrared absorption have been prepared by an ambient aqueous method. The resultant water-soluble and biocompatible nanoparticles are demonstrated to be a novel nanotheranostic agent for effective deep-tissue photoacoustic imaging, computed tomography imaging, single-photon emission computed tomography imaging, and photothermal therapy of cancer.
