Functionalized nanoparticles are a growing field of research due to their ability to bind a wide range of biomolecules (e.g. peptides, antibodies or DNA) covalently.
Especially gold nanorods (Au NRs) with their anisotropic, rod-like morphology (Fig. 1), optical properties & variable shapes (4 x 60 nm, 8 x 80 nm) are suitable for multifunctional biological and medical applications that go far beyond bioconjugation, including:
