Tailoring Cellular Uptake of Gold Nanoparticles Via the Hydrophilic-to-Hydrophobic Ratio of their (Co)polymer Coating

Ghent University, Belgium

Advanced Functional Materials Journal

It is demonstrated how cellular uptake and protein corona of (co)polymer-coated gold nanoparticles can be altered by the hydrophilic-to-hydrophobic comonomer ratio. A novel, label-free flow cytometry strategy is developed to investigate particle uptake. These findings offer insight in the design and analysis of hybrid nanomaterials for interfacing with biological systems.
