Colloidal micelles of block copolymers as nanoreactors, templates for gold nanoparticles, and vehicles for biomedical applications.
Target drug delivery methodology is becoming increasingly important to overcome the shortcomings of conventional drug delivery absorption method. It improves the action time with uniform distribution and poses minimum side effects, but is usually dif

Heparin assisted photochemical synthesis of gold nanoparticles and their performance as SERS substrates.
Reactive and pharmaceutical-grade heparins were used as biologically compatible reducing and stabilizing agents to photochemically synthesize colloidal gold nanoparticles. Aggregates and anisotropic shapes were obtained photochemically under UV black

Tea-bag-like polymer nanoreactors filled with gold nanoparticles.
Gold-containing polymer nanotubes, which showed both catalytic activity and resistance to leaching, were prepared by the "tubes by fiber templates" (TUFT) process. For this purpose, electrospun polymer nonwovens with incorporated poly(L-lactide)-stab

Size-controlled synthesis of conjugated polymer nanoparticles in confined nanoreactors.
Soluble conjugated polymeric nanoparticles are synthesized by Suzuki-type polycondensation of two monomers (Ax + By, x>2, y≥2) in the channel of ordered mesoporous silica-supported carbon nanomembranes (nanoreactors). These synthesized soluble conjug

DNA hydrogel as a template for synthesis of ultrasmall gold nanoparticles for catalytic applications.
DNA cross-linked hydrogel was used as a matrix for synthesis of gold nanoparticles. DNA possesses a strong affinity to transition metals such as gold, which allows for the concentration of Au precursor inside a hydrogel. Further reduction of HAuCl4 i

Microbial synthesis of Flower-shaped gold nanoparticles.
The shape of nanoparticles has been recognized as an important attribute that determines their applicability in various fields. The flower shape (F-shape) has been considered and is being focused on, because of its enhanced properties when compared t

Glyco-gold nanoparticles: synthesis and applications.
Glyco-gold nanoparticles combine in a single entity the peculiar properties of gold nanoparticles with the biological activity of carbohydrates. The result is an exciting nanosystem, able to mimic the natural multivalent presentation of saccharide mo

Yolk-shell Fe(0)@SiO2 nanoparticles as nanoreactors for fenton-like catalytic reaction.
Yolk-shell nanoparticles (YSNs) with active metal cores have shown promising applications in nanoreactors with excellent catalytic performance. In this work, Fe(0)@SiO2 YSNs were synthesized by a sequential "two-solvents" impregnation-reduction appro

Little adjustments significantly improve the Turkevich synthesis of gold nanoparticles.
In this report, we show how the classical and widely used Turkevich synthesis can be improved significantly by simple adjustments. The gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) produced with the optimized protocol have a much narrower size distribution (5-8% standa

Green synthesis of gold nanoparticles using plant extracts as reducing agents.
Gold nanoparticles (GNPs) were prepared using four different plant extracts as reducing and stabilizing agents. The extracts were obtained from the following plants: Salvia officinalis, Lippia citriodora, Pelargonium graveolens and Punica granatum. T
