It has been found recently that an ultrasmall nanoparticle whose size is smaller than the thickness of a cell membrane has unique roles in biomedical applications including the development of next generation of drugs or advanced nanoscale cargo carriers. However, the effect of physical properties of an ultrasmall nanoparticle on its adhesion to a bilayer membrane, which is a key step for Nano–Bio interaction as well as the biomedical applications, is still largely unknown. By using molecular… CONTINUE READING
