A multifunctional nanobiomaterial has been developed by deliberately combining functions of superparamagnetism, fluorescence, and axonal tracing into one material. Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles were first synthesized and coated with a silica layer to prevent emission quenching through core–dye interactions; a fluorescent molecule, fluorescein… CONTINUE READING
