Abstract

The present paper considers prospects for application of various nanoparticles in biology and medicine. Here are presented data on preparation of gold and silver nanoparticles, and effects of shape of these nanoparticles on their optical properties. Application of these nanoparticles in diagnostics, for drug delivery and therapy, and preparation of magnetic nanoparticles from iron and cobalt salts are also discussed. Application of these nanoparticles as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agents and as vehicles for drug delivery, and preparation of quantum dots and their application as prospective nanoparticles for multiplex analysis and for visualization of cellular processes will be tackled. Finally, prospects for new types of nanocomposites (metallic nano-shells) will be not overlooked.
