Ground breaking hybrid nanocrystal work

The top ranking journal ‘Nature Communications’ has published the latest ground breaking research from CNBP scientists with a paper titled, ‘Three-dimensional controlled growth of monodisperse sub-50 nm heterogeneous nanocrystals’.

The paper details the creation of  a library of over 800 newly shaped nanocrystals formed from ordered atom clusters over a period of three years. The different shaped or ‘hybrid’ nanocrystals will act as new tools impacting the areas of bio-imaging, diagnostics and nano-medicine.

According to CNBP Chief Investigator, Prof Dayong Jin, the work could form new solutions to getting around the body’s immune system response in the targeted treatment of cancerous cells, which causes both the healthy and diseased cells to die.

The full text of the paper is available online from the Nature Communicatons web site.
