Mechanism to obtain metal ’nanoscrews’

The EMAT group of Sara Bals leads unveils the 3D structure or novel helical gold nanoparticles synthesised for the first time in a collaboration with Prof. L. Liz-Marzan from CICBioMagune (Spain). Eesearchers at the Centre for Cooperative Research in Biomaterials CIC biomaGUNE led by Prof. L. Liz-Marzan have developed a mechanism by which gold atoms are deposited by means of chemical reduction onto previously formed gold nanorods to produce a quasi-helicoidal structure (the particles acquire chirality).
