Self-assembling conjugated polymer nanoparticles containing PVK
and PLGA-PEG as a matrix polymer were doped with both a luminescent
rare-earth complex and magnetic nanoparticles (SPIONs),
giving rise to materials that are both luminescent and magnetic.
Nanoparticle sizes ranged from 80–110 nm without SPIONs and
showed an increase in size (200–1000 nm) with additional SPION
content (11–54%). Quantum yields (QYs) of 24% and 18% were
measured for systems without and with 11% SPIONs, respectively.
Optical properties were stable and suitable for biological imaging
