The present mini review offers a brief overview on the preparation and modification of gold nanomaterials (AuNMs) designed for biomedical applications, including biosensors, bioimaging, phototherapy and importantly gene/drug delivery. As biocompatibility is a prerequisite for safe pharmaceutical application, the potential risk of AuNMs to biological systems is also assessed.

Keywords: Gold nanoparticles, nanomaterials, preparation methods, biomedical application, imaging, gene/drug delivery.
