The toxicity of Gold Nanoparticles in relation to their physiochemical properties

  title={The toxicity of Gold Nanoparticles in relation to their physiochemical properties},
  author={Clarence S Yah},
The rapid emergence of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) technology holds great promise for future applications due to their large volume specific surface areas with high diverse surface activities than bulk gold. These properties have made AuNPs of great importance in the development of excellent nanoelectronic chips, promising vehicle for a wide range of biomedical and environmental applications. However, the huge impact arising from the physiochemical properties has given rise to new concerns for… CONTINUE READING
