A swell idea: Research on hydrogel nanoparticles confirms the huge application potential of soft nanomaterials. Such nanoparticles can be made to swell and contract in response to changes in their environment. They could find uses as bioresponsive sensors, drug-delivery systems, implantable biomaterials, biotesting, and targetable chemotherapy agents. The picture shows HeLa cells containing core–shell nanoparticles as fluorescent markers.
