Hi everybody,
having NO alternative funds on the path to contribute ICPAC conference with an oral talk, which is titled "Lanthanides(III)-based nanoparticles as effective MRI contrast agents and emissive probes", I would like to start raisefunding. My campaign is predominantly addressed to people who are interested/empathized to science, particularly chemistry/biochemistry/biomedicine.
We have developed new type of nanoparticles prospective for medical applications in diagnosis. The new nanoparticles are rationally designed to simultaneously exhibit the optical properties of Tb and the magnetic behavior of Gd ions, towards bifunctional system with strong luminescence and high relaxivity. Colloidal, photophysical and magnetic studies were performed on nanoparticles with varying core composition, which is controlled by changing the Tb:Gd atomic ratio. We compared the relaxation parameters of the produced nanoparticles with commercial MRI agents. Particular attention was paid to the simplicity and universality of the strategy for the synthesis of bifunctional species. Tuning both magnetic and luminescent output of nanoparticles is possible via simple variation of composition of initial synthetic solution of lanthanides chelates. This synthetic strategy opens the door to new biomedical applications of lanthanide complexes.
The conference is held on Mauritius within the dates 2-6th of July. Official invitation is attached.
Would be glad to see your support.
