Spectroscopic Characterization of Nanoparticles for Potential Drug Discovery

This application note from Shimadzu explores use of UV-Vis and FTIR in monitoring and characterizing gold nanoparticles.

by Shimadzu

Application Note: The inertness and biocompatibility of gold nanoparticles (Au-NPs) make them very promising for specific applications such as medical imaging, drug delivery, gene delivery, and molecular sensing. This study evaluates the use of spectroscopic techniques, such as UV-Vis and FTIR, to monitor and characterize gold nanoparticles and gold nanoparticle conjugated systems.
