Inspiration from chemical photography: accelerated photoconversion of AgCl to functional silver nanoparticles mediated by DNA

Author affiliations

Abstract

We demonstrate a facile approach for converting AgCl to functional silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) via photoreduction in the presence of DNA. The resulting AgNPs are biofunctionalized, and exhibit photostable luminescence and DNA-specific Raman signatures, showing high potential for use in DNA-directed recognition and advanced bioimaging.
