Gold nanorods with size-controlled polydopamine coating for spectral imaging (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Jeanne Lemaster

Paper Abstract

This study details a polydopamine-coated gold nanorod synthesis for photoacoustic imaging. The most important finding is that the photoacoustic intensity and spectrum shifted upon coating with polydopamine. We used this photoacoustic signal change to identify samples in a phantom. Additionally, the polydopamine-coated gold nanorods exhibited an increase in stability over bare nanorods under photoacoustic irradiation. Future studies will study drug release and will monitor from the polydopamine coating and monitor the fate of the gold nanorods over time in vivo.
