Azido functions are introduced onto polydopamine-coated magnetite nanoparticles by diazo transfer making use of the amino ethyl groups found in polydopamine for the first time. The resulting azido-containing Fe3O4@polydopamine nanoparticles are magnetic nano-platforms, which can be linked to interesting functionalities by click-chemistry (CuAAC).
