Self-assembly of binary virus-gold nanoparticle superlattices


Self-assembly of binary virus-gold nanoparticle superlattices


Aalto University-led research group shows that CCMV virus or ferritin protein cages can be used to guide the assembly of RNA molecules or iron oxide nanoparticles into three-dimensional binary superlattices. The lattices are formed through tuneable electrostatic interactions with charged gold nanoparticles.
