Abstract

A redox luminescence switch was prepared by doping hydroxyapatite nanoparticles with CePO(4):Tb. The resulting multifunctional material exhibits good biocompatibility, biological affinity, and potential drug-carrying capability. The luminescent hydroxyapatite nanoparticles may find important applications in biomedical diagnostics, drug delivery, and biological sensors.
