Self-Assembling Gold Nanoparticles Use Light to Kill Tumor Cells PhysOrg.com, May 26, 2010
Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, have developed a method for creating supramolecular assemblies of gold nanoparticles that function as highly efficient photothermal agents for delivery to tumors, using a laser beam to heat the nanoparticles above 374 degreesC, the temperature at which explosive microbubbles form.
