|abstract: ||We have synthesized luminescent nanoparticles comprising a core of lanthanide complexes and shells of
amorphous silica using reverse micelles as nanoreactors. 3-Hydroxypicolinate complexes of Eu(III), Tb(III),
and the corresponding heteronuclear complexes have been investigated as the photoactive cores. The size of
the silica particles is within the nanometer scale, which, together with the ability for surface biofunctionalization,
opens up perspectives for their use in bioapplications. Optical studies of the as-prepared nanoparticles reveal
that the luminescence properties of the 3-hydroxypicolinate complexes in the matrices are markedly different
from their original features.|
