Multifunctional rattle-type microspheres integrating the advantages of being mesoporous, luminescent, and temperature responsive into one single entity are fabricated. As reported by Ziyong Cheng, Jun Lin, and co-workers on page 1470, the composite shows red emission and can potentially be applied as a spin-lattice relaxation time (T1)-positive contrast agent due to the Gd2O3:Eu3+ core. The rate of drug release can be regulated via a change in temperature due to controlled switching of the hydrogel.
