Multimodal luminescent-magnetic boron nitride nanotubes@NaGdF4:Eu structures for cancer therapy

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Boron nitride nanotubes@NaGdF4:Eu composites with core@shell structures were fabricated giving the opportunity to trace, target and thus to manipulate BNNTs in vitro. The composites show a significantly higher cellular uptake and chemotherapy drug intracellular delivery ability in the presence of an external magnetic field than that in its absence. © 2014 The Partner Organisations.
