AbstractSurface modified mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) with reduced toxicity were prepared for light and pH dual triggerable drug delivery system. Both 413nm light and acidic environment can activate the drug release process, improving the pharmacological action. By applying rhodamine B (RhB) as a model drug, the accumulative RhB release is as high as 95% in pH 5.0 and in irradiation of 413nm light, compared to only 55% in pH 7.4 and in dark. The anti-cancer drug camptothecin (CPT) loaded nanoparticles can kill cancer cells with IC50 value of 0.02μgmL-1 in exposure of 413nm light, which is much lower than free CPT (about 0.1μgmL-1). Multimodal nonlinear optical imaging microscopy (NLOM) was employed to acquire in vitro coherent anti-Stokes Raman (CARS) and two-photon excited fluorescence (TPEF) images of live MCF-7 cells and showed that the nanoparticles can be taken up by breast tumor cell MCF-7 with high efficiency, indicating its great potential for anti-cancer drug delivery system.
