Abstract

Rare earth (RE)-based nanomaterials are highly attractive as luminescent markers because of their unique spectroscopic properties, particularly for biological applications. In this sense, this project comprises the development of colloidal nanostructures acting as ratiometric luminescent sensors for reactive oxygen species (ROS) and as optical nanothermometers in biological systems. Initially, we propose the elaboration of new synthetic methodologies for colloidal nanoparticles using micro-heterogeneous systems, such as sacrificial templates and nanoreactors. Synthetic manipulation of REVO4, REPO4 and NaREF4 structures enables accurate description of spectroscopic properties with relation to structural, morphological and compositional parameters. This, in turn, allows for the design of nanothermometers or ROS ratiometric sensors with spatial and temporal resolution, which can afford stimuli responsive luminescence in single-particle scale. The combination of nanothermometry and ROS sensing is a highly interesting prospect towards multimodality and theranostics via the control of the surface functionality of the particles. Hence, luminescent sensors are potentially applicable as tools for the detailed study of cellular mechanisms associated to the oxidative stress of ROS and of related diseases. Therefore, we propose to strictly correlate the solid state properties of RE-based nanomaterials and their spectroscopic behavior, focusing on the design of new luminescent labeling methodologies applicable in intracellular conditions.
