Size- and shape-controlled growth of nanoscale microporous organic polymers (MOPs) is a big challenge scientists are confronted with; meanwhile, rendering these materials for in vivo biomedical applications is still scarce. In this study, a monodispersed nanometalated covalent organic polymer (MCOP, M=Fe, Gd) with sizes around 120 nm was prepared by a self-templated two-step solution-phase synthesis method. The metal ions (Fe3+, Gd3+) played important roles in generating a small particle size and in the functionalization of the products during the reaction with p-phenylenediamine (Pa). The resultant Fe-Pa complex was used as a template for the subsequent formation of MCOP following the Schiff base reaction with 1,3,5-triformylphloroglucinol (Tp). A high tumor suppression efficiency for this Pa-based COP is reported for the first time. This study demonstrates the potential use of MCOP as a photothermal agent for photothermal therapy (PTT) and also provides an alternative route to fabricate nano-sized MCOPs. I'm a MCOP: A monodispersed nanometallated covalent organic polymer (MCOP, M=Fe, Gd) based on p-phenylenediamine (Pa) and 1,3,5-triformylphloroglucinol (Tp) was prepared by a self-templated two-step solution-phase synthesis method at room temperature. The photothermal therapy (PTT) efficacy was assessed both in vitro and in vivo, and high tumor suppression efficiency for this Pa-based COP is reported.
