Spark-produced Au–Sn nanoparticle-laden nitrogen gas flow was employed as the operating gas for collison atomization of RP–I solution, where gas pressurization near the orifice induced insertion of Au–Sn into the RP–I solution to produce the all-in-one precursor (RP–I+Au–Sn) droplets. The droplets were then injected into a heated tubular reactor (650 °C wall temperature) for the catalytic conversion of RP into BP, and the reacted gases were removed by flowing the mixture through an activated carbon-packed hollow tube. DLH was incorporated into the collected BP to form BP-DLH via an LbL process, and the BP-DLH was then employed in targeted chemo-phototherapy experiments to determine its therapeutic efficacy
