Special Symposium

Gold has been at the forefront of the nanotechnology revolution. Gold nanoparticles exhibit a variety of unique properties. They are finding commercial application in medicine as delivery vehicles for therapeutics, and in sensors and diagnostics. Nanogold colloidal catalysts achieve record breaking efficiencies and their optical properties enable a wide range of applications. This special symposium will highlight commercially relevant research and developments in gold nanotechnology.

Topic areas:

  • Materials for Drug & Gene Delivery
  • Cancer Nanotechnology
  • Biosensing, Diagnostics & Imaging
  • Nanomaterials for Catalysis
  • Nanoparticle Synthesis & Applications
