Description
Summary:This dissertaion focus on the synthesis, surface modification and characterization of inorganic nanoparticles(NPs), including magnetic, plasmonic and semiconductor NPs. With controlling the reaction conditions during the synthesis, different particle diameters in the range of 4 nm to 30 nm can be synthesized. Afterwards, polymer coating process was successfully applied to different materials by overcoating the NPs with an amphiphoilic polymer, which can make the particle water soluble. This work aimed to produce the polymer- coated nanoparticles,analyze and compare their physico- ‐chemical properties based on different materials,and further, to test their potential for different biological applications.
