Fluorinated Graphene Oxide; a New Multimodal Material for Biological Applications

Authors


Abstract

Fluorinated graphene oxide (FGO) is reported for the first time as a magnetically responsive drug carrier that can serve both as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and photoacoustic contrast agent, under preclinical settings, and as a type of photothermal therapy. Its hydrophilic nature facilitates biocompatibility. FGO as a broad wavelength absorber, with high charge transfer and strong non-linear scattering is optimal for NIR laser-induced hyperthermia.
