Abstract

Strahlemänner: Fulleren-Siliciumdioxid-Hybridnanopartikel verfügen über helle Photolumineszenz, hohe Photobeständigkeit und geringe Zelltoxizität – alles Vorteile bei der Verwendung als Bildgebungsagentien für biologische Proben. Die Photolumineszenz der Nanopartikel beruht auf den C-O-Si-Bindungen (siehe Bild).
