Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are of biomedical importance, such as delivery vectors. Therefore, we used all-atom molecular dynamic simulations to study the interaction of AuNPs with cell membrane (DMPC bilayer). We observed that the AuNPs adhered spontaneously on the surface of...

Multifunctional phosphine based ligands, 1,1,1-tris(diphenylphosphinomethyl)ethane [CH3C(CH2 PPh2)3][P3] and 1,1,1-tris(diphenylphosphinomethyl)ethane trisulphide [CH3C(CH2P(S)Ph2)3][P3S3] have been introduced to stabilize Au(o)-nanoparticles having small core diameter and narrow size distribution. The Au(o)-nanoparticles were synthesized by the reduction of HAuCl4 precursor with NaBH4 in the presence...
