How could gold nanourchins be applied in the clinic?


The physicochemical characteristics of nanoparticles, including gold nanoparticles (AuNPs), depend on their composition, shape, size and surface modification. These features contribute to the photophysical properties, reactivity and toxicity of nanomaterials in biological systems [1–3]. The excellent biocompatibility and colloidal stability are critical attributes that propelled AuNPs to the forefront of research and development [1,2].
