Abstract

Production of paramagnetic and phosphorescent nanoprobes, obtainable starting from nanometric silica particles by methods of synthesis and enrichment with O2 following suitable thermal treatments in a controlled environment. The nanoprobes thus obtained display emission in the near infrared (NIR), are excitable in the visible and in the NIR, and are characterized by a lifetime of the order of one second. These nanoprobes have considerable scientific and commercial potential in the market of the confocal spectroscopy for bio-imaging and in the market of the medical pharmaceutical applications of drug labelling and drug delivery.
