Water-soluble conjugated polyelectrolyte brush encapsulated rare-earth ion doped nanoparticles with dual-upconversion properties for multicolor cell imaging

Abstract

A concise route to prepare water-soluble rare-earth ion doped upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) by encapsulation of grafted cationic conjugated polyelectrolyte brushes (PFNBr) is reported. Integrating two kinds of upconversion materials effectively addresses multicolor fluorescence by introducing the concept of dual-upconversion.
