A supramolecular self-assembly strategy for upconversion nanoparticle bioconjugation

Author affiliations

Abstract

An efficient surface modification for upconversion nanoparticles (UCNPs) is reported via supramolecular host–guest self-assembly. Cucurbit[7]uril (CB) can provide a hydrophilic surface and cavities for most biomolecules. High biological efficiency, activity and versatility of the approach enable UCNPs to be significantly applied in bio-imaging, early disease detection, and bio-sensing.
