Selenium-Carbon Bifunctional Nanoparticles for the Treatment of Malignant Mesothelioma



original image

A novel selenium-carbon composite nanostructure is synthesized by heterogeneous nucleation of Se nanoclusters on the high-activity surfaces of liquid-crystal-derived carbon nanoparticles. This article evaluates the new Se/C bifunctional nanocomposite for chemotherapeutic applications relative to conventional selenium, exploring its potential as a mesothelioma chemotherapeutic agent.
