Gold nanoparticles protected by fluorinated ligands for F-19 MRI

Gold nanoparticles coated with fluorinated ligands (F-MPCs) present features suitable for F-19 MRI as observed from phantom experiments. Cellular uptake, by HeLa cells, and toxicity of fluorescent dye-decorated F-MPCs are presented together with their ability to bind hydrophobic molecules allowing for a potential combination of targeting, delivery and imaging features.
