Title: Nanomaterials tackling the global health challenges
Abstract: The plasmonic gold nanoparicles were already synthesised by Micheal Faraday in 1857, so what is new? How the iron rust can be used to diagnose and treat cancer? How different shape of Au nanorods can help with killing bacteria on surfaces. Please come to find out our Interdisciplinary and innovative research on the design, and synthesis of magnetic and plasmonic nanomaterials for biomedical applications.
