Epub 2016 Dec 14.Adequately designed multiresponsive water-soluble graft copolymers were used to serve as a multifunctional polymeric platform for the encapsulation and transfer in aqueous media of hydrophobic magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs). The backbone of the graft copolymers was composed of hydrophilic sodium methacrylate units, hydrophobic dodecyl methacrylate units, and luminescent quinoline-based units, while either the homopolymer poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) or a poly(N,N-dimethylacrylamide-co-N-isopropylacrylamide) copolymer was used as thermosensitive pendent side chains.
