Monodisperse phase transfer and surface bioengineering of metal nanoparticles via a silk fibroin protein corona.


Uniform hydrophobic nanoparticles synthesized in nonpolar solvents possess excellent physio-chemical properties, showing great potential in biomedical applications. However, the presence of hydrophobic ligands on their surfaces limits their use under physiological conditions. Inspired by protein coronas present at the nano-bio interface, here we report a… (More)
