Controlled-release systems that respond to external stimuli have received great interest for use in medical treatments such as for drug delivery to specific sites. Gold nanorods have an absorption band at the near-infrared region and convert the absorbed light energy into heat, which is known as a "photothermal effect". Therefore, gold nanorods are expected to act not only as an on-demand thermal converter for photothermal therapy but also as a controller of a drug-release system capable of… CONTINUE READING
