New materials that exhibit tuneable optical properties, notable emission across the visible spectrum, are of immense interest to biologists as they present a broad palette of colours from a single imaging agent that can be utilised in biological detection. Such a flexible system, when combined with the advantages of using conjugated polymer nanoparticles in cell imaging results in a widely useful medical diagnostic system. Here, we describe tuneable emission observed through oxidation of a conjugated polymer followed by the formation of nanoparticles and their subsequent use in cell imaging.
