Rice University lab develops starfruit-shaped nanorods for medical imaging, chemical sensing They look like fruit, and indeed the nanoscale stars of new research at Rice University have tasty implications for medical imaging and chemical sensing. Starfruit-shaped gold nanorods synthesized by chemist Eugene Zubarev and Leonid Vigderman, a graduate student in his lab at Rice´s BioScience Research Collaborative, could nourish applications that rely on surface-enhanced Raman...

U.S. chemists say they've discovered a technology that permits them to produce ultra-pure gold nanorods that are about 99 percent pure. "The content of high-aspect-ratio gold nanorods produced by today's best synthetic methods is only about 20 percent," said Rice University Assistant Professor Eugene Zubarev, who is leading the research. "A nanoparticle's shape plays a crucial role in determining many of its physical and chemical properties, so when four out of five particles in a batch are...
