Enhanced biostability and cellular uptake of zinc oxide nanocrystals shielded with a phospholipid bilayer† †Electronic supplementary information (ESI) available. See DOI: 10.1039/c7tb02229h


The widespread use of ZnO nanomaterials for biomedical applications, including therapeutic drug delivery or stimuli-responsive activation, as well as imaging, imposes a careful control over the colloidal stability and long-term behaviour of ZnO in biological media. Moreover, the effect of ZnO nanostructures on living cells, in particular cancer cells, is… (More)
