There is great interest in the use of fluorescent polymer nanoparticles as optical imaging agents. When designing and synthesising a fluorescent polymer nanoparticle imaging agent there is a large variety in both the particle formation and dye attachment strategies that can be pursued. In this mini‐review we detail this range of possibilities, illustrating with examples from the literature, and highlighting particular advantages in each case. © 2014 The Authors.
