Palladium nanosheets as highly stable and effective contrast agents for in vivo photoacoustic molecular imaging
A stable and efficient contrast agent is highly desirable for photoacoustic (PA) imaging applications. Recently gold nanostructures have been widely reported and studied for PA imaging and photothermal therapy. However, the structures of the nonspherical gold nanoparticles are easily destroyed after laser irradiation and thus may fail to complete the intended tasks. In this study, we propose to apply palladium nanosheets (PNSs), with strong optical absorption in the near-infrared (NIR) region,doi:10.1039/c3nr05468c pmid:24317132 fatcat:2icuc577nrahbeqylr3ibb3eee
