Superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPIONs) are directly functionalized with polyglycerol (PG) using ring-opening polymerization of glycidol to obtain good solubility in pure water and in a phosphate buffer solution. The resulting SPION-PG is further functionalized through multistep organic transformations to immobilize a targeting peptide on the surface. The targeting effect is demonstrated in cell experiments.
