Ion-Mediated Aggregation of Gold Nanoparticles for Light-Induced Heating
AbstractPhotothermal therapy is proposed as a straightforward manner of killing cancer cells, which a plasmon field of gold nanoparticles is activated by incoming light resonance leading to a local increase of temperature. This photothermal effect is strongly dependent on the plasmonic features of the nanoparticles. Herein, we study the effect of the ion-mediated aggregation of citrate-capped small spherical gold nanoparticles on the plasmonic band and the photothermal performance. An intermediate value of ionic strength has been found to be optimum with respect to the photothermal capabilities of the gold nanoparticles. View Full-Text
