They look like fruit, and indeed the nanoscale stars of new research at Rice University have tasty implications for medical imaging and chemical sensing.
Rice University chemists have found a way to load more than 2 million tiny gold particles called nanorods into a single cancer cell.
Nanoparticles combining platinum and gold act as superefficient catalysts, but chemists have struggled to create them in an industrially useful form.
U.S. chemists say they've discovered a technology that permits them to produce ultra-pure gold nanorods that are about 99 percent pure.
