Syntheses of amorphous and crystalline cupric sulfide nanoparticles and study on the specific activities on different cells.


PMID 20376385

Abstract

Copper sulfide amorphous nanoparticles and nanocrystals were prepared successfully by a special process. These CuS nanoparticles could specifically and significantly induce the apoptosis and inhibit the proliferation of human cancer cells rather than normal cells. Moreover, the biological activities of these nanoparticles are related to their polymorphs.
