An aero-self-assembly to fabricate Au-SiO2/IBU-PLL functional nanobunches is introduced for the first time for the efficient inhibition of cell proliferation through NIR-induced chemo-thermal therapy. This functional nanoparticle design approach provides useful insights for improving the applica­bility of Au-based hybrid nanoparticles for the development of smart controlled release systems.
