Metallic nanoparticles (MNPs) such as iron oxide and gold nanoparticles are interesting platforms to build theragnostic nanocarriers which combine both therapeutic and diagnostic functions within a single nanostructure. Nevertheless, their surface must be functionalized to be suitable for in vivo applications. Surface functionalization also provides binding sites for targeting ligands, and for drug loading. This review focuses on the materials and surface chemistry used to build hybrid… CONTINUE READING
