Difluoroboron dibenzoylmethane-polylactide, BF(2)dbmPLA, a biocompatible polymer-luminophore conjugate was fabricated as nanoparticles. Spherical particles < 100 nm in size were generated via nanoprecipitation. Intense blue fluorescence, two-photon absorption, and long-lived room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) are retained in aqueous suspension. The nanoparticles were internalized by cells and visualized by fluorescence microscopy. Luminescent boron biomaterials show potential for imaging and sensing.
