Silicon-based nanoparticles have been attracting a lot of interest in the field of biomedical applications due to their biocompatibility and biodegradability in vivo, as well as their flexible surface chemistry. Here, we demonstrate two different synthetic approaches in order to yield various nano-sized silicon nanoparticles (Si NPs) ranging from 5 nm to 500 nm as hyperpolarized contrast agents for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). i) The particles were synthesized by means of a chemical reduction of micelles formed by mixing silicon tetrachloride and alkyltrichlorosilane. ii) Magnesiothermic reduction of silica was also processed to produce Si NPs. The Si NPs have many great benefits to the hyperpolarized MR imaging. Since a core region of the crystalline Si NPs is mostly protected from a main relaxation source, such as paramagnetic centers existing at surface defect sites, the Si NPs show extremely long depolarization times (usually longer than 30 mins), resulting in high MR image contrast with minimum or no background signals. In addition, paramagnetic centers on the surface defect sites play a pivotal role in generating MR signal enhancement induced by dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) mechanism, thereby not necessary to add external radical sources. In conclusion, these features and benefits convincingly suggest that the Si NPs can potentially be used as a biocompatible, targetable, and hyperpolarized MRI contrast agents.
