Gold nanoparticles decorated with a photoactivable nitric oxide donor/cyclodextrin host/guest complex

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hybrid gold nanoclusters exhibiting photoregulated release of nitric oxide are obtained by appropriate self-assembling of a suitable host, a photoactivable guest and Au nanoparticles. The excitation of the core, the shell or both components of the nanoclusters with visible light, together with their dark stability and water solubility, make these nanoarchitectures intriguing candidates to be tested in biomedical research studies.
