Abstract

A method of introducing intrinsically photo luminescent properties to biodegradable polymer is introduced, exemplified by the synthesis of intrinsically photoluminescent polylactones that enable non-invasive monitoring and tracking of material degradation in vivo in realtime, as well as the formation of theranostic nanoparticles for cancer imaging and drug delivery.
