A near-infrared (NIR) responsive PtPd-ethylene glycol (PEG)-folic acid (FA)-doxorubicin (DOX) mesoporous nanoparticle was fabricated to achieve active-targeted imaging-guided chemo-photothermal therapy of breast cancer. NIR irradiation could not only induce the hyperthermia to kill tumor cells, but also promote the release of DOX to trigger synergistic therapeutic effect. With high DOX loading capacity, excellent photoacoustic (PA) imaging/ photothermal therapy (PTT) effect as well as active targeting function, our nanoplatform is a promising candidate for PTT/chemotherapy in tumor treatment application.
