Abstract

Monolayer-protected nanoparticles provide versatile tools for nanotechnology. In our research, we use these nanoparticles as building blocks for the creation of functional magnetic and electronic nanocomposite materials. Simultaneously, we are using these particles as scaffolds for biomolecular recognition. These materials exploit the size (similar to that of proteins) and surface tunability of nanoparticles for applications including biomacromolecule recognition and delivery.
