Abstract: This paper describes the synthesis method and the spectral-luminescent properties of nanoparticles containing the ytterbium complex of protoporphyrin IX dimethyl ether in Lexan-based polymer matrix which are promising for use in tumours diagnostics. For theranostics purposes, the synthesis of multifunctional nanoparticles containing iron oxide core and Lexan-polymer shell, including ytterbium porphyrin complexes (YPC), was carried out. The iron oxide nanoparticles are responsible for carrying out the local hyperthermia procedure when exposed to a high-frequency magnetic field.
