Layered MoS2 nanoflowers for microwave thermal therapy

Author affiliations


Microwave (MW) hyperthermia has received great attention as an emerging green tumor thermotherapy. In this work, layered MoS2 nanoflowers were prepared through a simple bottom-up hydrothermal process. By coating MoS2 nanoflowers with bovine serum albumin (BSA-MoS2), BSA-MoS2 exhibits low biotoxicity and excellent microwave susceptive properties in vitro. Meanwhile, the heating effect improvement by the layered structure was confirmed via a computer-simulated experiment. Finally, layered BSA-MoS2 nanoflowers are designed as MW hyperthermia susceptible agents for in vivo cancer therapy with 100% tumor elimination via MW irradiation at 1.8 W, 450 MHz.
