Researchers from School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Describe Findings in Physics

June 10, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Investigators publish new report on Physics. According to news originating from Atlanta, Georgia, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Featured by tunable localized surface plasmon resonance peaks in the near-infrared region and hollow interiors, Au nanocages represent a novel class of multifunctional nanomaterials that have gained considerable attention in recent years."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, "This short review summarizes our recent work on the capabilities of Au nanocages in nanomedicine. We start with a brief description of the synthesis of Au nanocages and highlight our recent protocols for the scaled-up production of Au nanocages."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "We then use a number of examples to illustrate how Au nanocages can contribute to nanomedicine with respect to both diagnosis and therapy."
