Highly stable lipid-encapsulation of fluorescent nanodiamonds for bioimaging applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

Highly stable lipid-encapsulated fluorescent nanodiamonds (FNDs) are produced by photo-crosslinking of diacetylene-containing lipids physically attached to the FND surface. Not only is this coating method simple and fast, but also it gives the FND–lipid hybrids favorable properties for bioapplications. The hybrids are useful as fluorescent biolabels as well as fiducial markers for correlative light and electron microscopy.
