Sequestering Gold Nanorods by Polymer Microgels

Abstract

Cationic nanorods can be efficiently sequestered into cationic, neutral and anionic polyacrylamide microgels, with a loading capacity almost independent of the charge of the microgels. These results indicate that electrostatic forces do not dominate interactions between the nanorods and microgels.
