Monodisperse, ultrasmall (<5 nm) Cu(2-x)S nanodots (u-Cu(2-x)S NDs) with significantly strong near-infrared absorption and conversion are successfully demonstrated for effective deep-tissue photoacoustic imaging-guided photothermal therapy both in vitro and in vivo. Owing to ultrasmall nanoparticle size and high water dispersibility as well as long(More)
A novel type of intelligent nanoprobe by using single component of Cu2-xS for multimodal imaging has been facilely and rapidly synthesized in scale via thermal decomposition followed by biomimetic phospholipid modification, which endows them with uniform and small nanoparticle size (ca.15 nm), well phosphate buffer saline (PBS) dispersity, high stability,(More)
Substantially different from traditional combinatorial-treatment of photothermal therapy (PTT) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) by using multi-component nanocomposite under excitation of separate wavelength, a novel single near infrared (NIR) laser-induced multifunctional theranostic nanoplatform has been rationally and successfully constructed by a single(More)
Aiming at substantially enhanced efficacy and biosafety of clinical HIFU therapy, a natural solid medium, L-menthol (LM), characteristic of mild and controllable "solid-liquid-gas" (SLG) tri-phase transition, was adopted, instead of those conventional explosive liquid-gas (LG) bi-phase transitional media, in constructing a multifunctional theranostic(More)
Noninvasive and targeted physical treatment is still desirable especially for those cancerous patients. Herein, we develop a new physical treatment protocol by employing CO2 bubbling-based 'nanobomb' system consisting of low-intensity ultrasound (1.0 W/cm(2)) and a well-constructed pH/temperature dual-responsive CO2 release system. Depending on the(More)
A new kind of green titania (G-TiO2-x ) with obvious green color was facilely synthesized from black titania (B-TiO2-x ) through subsequently strong ultrasonication. Comparatively, this stable G-TiO2-x shows much enhanced near infrared (NIR) absorption, especially around 920 nm, which can be ascribed to the obvious change of TiO2-x lattice order owing to(More)
