  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a promising alternative to cancer therapy for its non-invasive advantage. The rational design of ideal photosensitizers (PSs) is especially significant in PDT.
  • A diiodosubstituted BODIPY (SNBDP) with near-infrared (NIR) region absorption and fluorescence emission by Knoevenagel condensation reaction.
  • The SNBDP nanoparticles (NPs) were prepared by the nanoprecipitation method wrapped by poloxamer.
