Rational design of oriented assembly of gold nanospheres with nanorods by biotin-streptavidin connectors
Through the different functionalities on Au nanosphere (AuNSs) and Au nanorod (AuNRs) surfaces, we successfully control AuNSs attachment onto either the end or side surface of anisotropic AuNRs via bio-recognition, and ...
Near-IR sensitive Au-Au2S nanoparticles with biocompatibility for drug delivery
The near-infrared (NIR) sensitive Au-Au2S nanoparticles (NPs) have shown many advantages as potential drug delivery systems. To further investigate biological safety of Au-Au2S NPs, cytotoxicity was estimated by calcein ...
Controllable synthesis, magnetic and biocompatible properties of Fe3O4 and alpha-Fe2O3 nanocrystals
Iron oxide nanocrystals (NCs) with a series of well-controlled morphologies (octahedron, rod, wire, cube and plate) and compositions (Fe3O4 and alpha-Fe2O3) were synthesized via a facile hydrothermal process. The morphological ...
Biocompatibility of near-IR sensitive Au-based nanoparticles as the potential drug delivery carriers
We successfully synthesized near infrared (NIR) sensitive Au(shell)-Au(2)S(core) nanoparticles, where Au(2)S dielectric core was encapsulated by a thin gold shell. The cytotoxicity in vitro and biodistribution in vivo of ...
Novel organic-inorganic hybrid nanoparticles as non-viral gene vector
Novel hybrid biomaterial of gelatin-siloxane nanoparticles (GS NPs), with positive surface potential and lower cytotoxicity, was synthesized through a 2-step sol-gel process. The pDNA-GS NPs complex was formulated with ...
