Revolution in the Synthesis, Physio-chemical and Biological Characterization of Gold Nanoplatform
This review article mainly focuses on the revolution of the synthesis of gold nanoplatform from the
previous era to the present era. Initially, the gold nanoplatform was widely used by the electrical and electronic
industries for their products due to its remarkable properties, such as large surface volume, redox activity, fluorescence
quenching, and optical-electronic properties. In this era, due to the invention of localised surface plasmonic
resonance, optoacoustic, photothermal and theragnostic characteristics of the gold nanoplatforms and
their application in biosensors and various diagnostic methods, the pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies
have started showing their interest in manufacturing gold nanoplatforms for their new product development.
This colloidal dispersion is synthesized in various forms, such as a gold nanoparticle, gold nanoplatform,
plasmonic gold nanoparticle, amphiphilic gold nanoparticle, and gold nanocrystal. This review article describes
various methods for preparation of gold nanoplatforms with different size, shape, and physiobiological properties
and their applications in different fields.
