Abstract

The thesis describes the use of gold nanorods as molecular probes for light-based imaging techniques for potential applications in biology and medicine. An overview of the synthesis and critical parameters influencing the synthesis of gold nanorods on size/shape/yield of nanorods are discussed. For using gold nanorods in vivo, the concerns of toxicity, biodistribution and bioconjugation are addressed to make them suited for use in vivo.
