Author : Shaina Kujar, Akanksha Choudhary, Manjit Kaur, Prerna Upadhyay and Nitan Bharti Gupta

This article is mainly aimed on the synthesis and applications of gold nanoparticles in the field of medicine and targeted drug delivery. Nanotechnology has become one of the ubiquitous and advanced areas of research in this field. Among nanoparticles, gold nanoparticles show special advantages in this field due to their unique properties, small size and high surface area-to-volume ratio. Gold nano particles are widely used in various biomedical applications and drug delivery systems due to their inert nature, stability, high dispersity, non-cytotoxicity and biocompatibility. Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are important components for biomedical applications. AuNPs have been widely employed for diagnostics, and have seen increasing use in the area of therapeutics. In this mini-review, we present fabrication strategies for AuNPs and highlight a selection of recent applications of these materials in bionanotechnology.
