Plasmon excitation of supported gold nanoparticles can control molecular release from supramolecular systems.


Hybrid mesoporous silica materials containing gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) have been investigated as potential molecular delivery systems. The photophysical properties of AuNPs, particularly their plasmon band transitions, have been used to control the rate of the release of naproxen from the pores of mesoporous silica matrices. Two different approaches were… (More)
