Metal Nanoparticles: Synthesis, Characterization, and Biomedical Applications

Sivasankar Putta, Raj Kumar Sharma, Puneet Khandelwal

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Metallic nanoparticles have attracted the attention of researchers world-wide because of their fascinating optical, electrical, magnetic, and catalytic prop-erties. Metallic nanoparticles have an easy surface modification chemistry to attach various molecules such as ligands, targeting agents, biomolecules, drugs, and anti-bodies. Because of the different properties and easy modification chemistry, these nanoparticles have wide-ranging applications, including biomedical, solar, catalysis, etc. This chapter will focus on metallic nanoparticles, specifically gold nanoparticles, for biomedical applications.
