Frontispiece: Near-Infrared Photoinduced Reactions Assisted by Upconverting Nanoparticles

Frontispiece: Near-Infrared Photoinduced Reactions Assisted by Upconverting Nanoparticles
James P. Blinco, Christopher Barner-Kowollik, Si Wu
The use of upconverting nanoparticles (UCNPs) is a universal approach to induce reactions with near-infrared (NIR) light. UCNPs are lanthanide-doped inorganic nanoparticles able to convert NIR light to UV or visible light. The upconverted short-wavelength light can subsequently induce photoreactions such as photoisomerization, photopolymerization, photolysis, and photo-ligation. The frontispiece graphic shows various photoreactions induced by NIR light with the assistance of UCNPs. UCNP-assisted photochemistry is ideal for biomedical applications as NIR light can penetrate deeper into tissue. For more details, see the Concept article by C. Barner-Kowollik et al. on page 8325 ff.
