Smart charge-reversible upconversion nanoparticles are developed for pH-responsive in vivo near-infrared light -excited photodynamic therapy. While stable under normal physiological pH, highly sensitive acid-induced charge conversion of those nanoparticles is observed in slightly acidic tumor microenvironments, resulting in significantly enhanced cellular internalization of nanoparticles and remarkably improved photodynamic cancer-cell killing efficacy.
