(A) Schematic representation of the nanoparticles. (B) UV-Vis spectra of all nanoparticles showing the appearance of the characteristic plasmon of gold. Due to their different solubilities, Fe3O4 NPs and Fe3O4@Au NPs were measured in hexane solution, whereas the rest were measured in water. (C) TEM micrograph and histogram of Fe3O4 NPs. (D) TEM micrograph and histogram of Fe3O4@Au NPs. (E) TEM micrograph and histogram of Fe3O4@Au@Man/CO2H NPs. (F) TEM micrograph and histogram of NP-CD163.
