Weiwei Gao, Che-Ming J. Hu, Ronnie H. Fang, Brian T. Luk, Jing Su and Liangfang Zhang Biomedical Applications: Surface Functionalization of Gold Nanoparticles with Red Blood Cell Membranes (Adv. Mater. 26/2013) Advanced Materials 25
Liangfang Zhang and co-workers report on page 3549 a top-down approach to functionalize gold nanoparticles with cellular membranes from natural red blood cells. The resulting gold nanoparticles have an enclosed membrane shield and biological characteristics found on the source cells. By combining inorganic gold nanoparticles with biological membranes, this work demonstrates a compelling strategy to develop biomimetic gold nanostructures for future applications.
