Fe3O4-ZIF-8 assemblies as pH and glutathione responsive T2-T1 switching magnetic resonance imaging contrast agent for sensitive tumor imaging in vivo

Abstract

The small Fe3O4 nanoparticles based T1 contrast agent was assembled into a pH and glutathione responsive T2-T1 switching contrast agent, Fe3O4-ZIF-8. In vivo T1-weighted images of mice showed that Fe3O4-ZIF-8 displayed darkening contrast enhancement for liver, while darkening to brightening contrast enhancement at tumor site, giving large inverse contrast for distinguishing the normal and tumor tissues.
