Different metal oxide particles are dye labeled by a novel and versatile approach based on aryldiazonium salt chemistry. For dye labeling the particles, the simplicity of aryldiazonium salts to be grafted onto metallic or metal oxide surface is advantageous. The salt is used as a linking agent for attaching the fluorescent molecules.
