Nanocarriers with ultrahigh chromophore loading for fluorescence bio-imaging and photodynamic therapy.


We describe the design of original nanocarriers that allows for ultrahigh chromophore loading while maintaining the photo-activity of each individual molecule. They consist in shells of charged biocompatible polymers grafted on gold nanospheres. The self-organization of extended polymer chains results from repulsive charges and steric interactions that are… (More)
