Water-soluble fluorescent unimolecular micelles: ultra-small size, tunable fluorescence emission from the visible to NIR region and enhanced biocompatibility for in vitro and in vivo bioimaging

Abstract

Fluorescent unimolecular micelles (FUMs) with multicolor emission acting as fluorescent nanoagents for optical fluorescence imaging have, for the first time, been reported. The FUMs show good water-solubility, ultra-small size, and enhanced biocompatibility, which endow the FUMs with versatile applications including organelle labeling, multicolor markers and high tumor accumulation, revealing that our design can serve as a rational strategy for the development of UM-based fluorescent nanoagents for bioprocess monitoring.
