We developed a simple one-step synthesis of D-Glucuronic acid surface-modified ultra small Dy2O3 nanoparticles. It is characterized by using MP-XRD ,TEM, FT-IR spectrophotometer,TGA,SQUID magnetometer and Magnetic Resonance Imaging(MRI) instrument. The resulting data suggest that ligand-coated ultra-small Dy2O3 nanoparticles will be extremely valuable for target specific biomedical applications such as MRI contrast agents.
