Abstract

A combination of ring-opening polymerization (ROP) and coordination chemistry methodology has been expanded for the synthesis of a multifunctional, biocompatible, magnetic, luminescent nanohybrid complex comprising magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles (MNPs), poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) and europium ions (Eu3+). The structural and morphological characteristic of the nanohybrid intricate were studied by appropriate spectrum and physical researches. The superparamagnetic behaviour and unique Eu3+ fluorescence properties with a high emission intensity of MNP-PCL-Eu3+ were investigated via measurements with a superconducting quantum interference equipment magnetism and fluorescence spectroscopy.
