ABSTRACT

We report in this communication a simple, facile surface modification strategy to transfer hydrophobic manganese oxide nanoparticles (MONPs) into water by using polyaspartic acid (PASP). We systematically investigated the effect of the size of PASP-MONPs on MRI of normal liver and found that the particles with a core size of 10 nm exhibited greater enhancement than those with larger core sizes.
