    AnnotationIn current biomedically oriented research, the development of a biomimetic nanoparticle platform is of interest to provide a molecular toolbox (i.e., allowing easy modular exchange of its parts depending on actual needs while being nontoxic and allowing real-time recognition and tracking using various methods, such as fluorescence). We report the development of germanium(IV) oxide-polysaccharide composite particles possessing these properties. The nanoparticles are based on a crystalline germanium oxide core with a size range of 20–30 and 300–900 nm. Two new simple coating techniques were compared for the preparation of the photoluminescent polysaccharide-coated germanium(IV) oxide nanoparticles. The germanium(IV)-based core allows for in situ polysaccharide attachment via direct chelation. In addition, the nanoparticles were coated with thin layer of silicon oxide. After coating, 3-(triethoxysilyl)propyl isocyanate was grafted onto the surface, and the polysaccharides were immobilized on the particle surface via a covalent urethane linkage, which allows for an even more stable polysaccharide coating than that obtained via chelation. This approach provides access to a new material platform for biological track and image applications.
