Special Issue "Inorganic Nanoparticles as Biomedical Probes"
A special issue of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 April 2015)
Inorganic probes—including metal, semiconductor, and magnetic nanoparticles—have attracted much attention both from fundamental and practical points of view, because of their size-dependent properties and fascinating functionality.
In particular, applications of inorganic nanoparticles cover a wide range of areas which take advantage of characteristics such as localized surface plasmon resonance, the quantum confinement effect and superparamagnetism. In addition, their flexibility for surface modification/functionalization helps to extend the range of applications, particularly in the biomedical field.
This special issue aims to cover all various aspects including, but not limited to, synthesis of novel inorganic nanoparticles as biological probes, and biomedical applications (imaging, sensing, diagnostics, therapeutics, etc.) of inorganic nanoparticles.
