The ability of gold (Au) nanoparticles (NPs) to generate heat efficiently by absorbing visible and near-infrared (NIR) light holds great promise as a means to trigger chemical and biochemical events near the NPs. Previous demonstrations show that pulsed laser irradiation can selectively elicit the release of a fluorescent dye covalently anchored to the NP(More)
Please release me: The heat generated when metal nanoparticles absorb light results in a significant increase in the temperature of the environment around the particles and is used to selectively break bonds within a molecular system anchored to the nanoparticle surface (see picture). This process represents an advantageous and more universal method to(More)
