10308001011114NANOSHELLSNanoshells are important from the point of view of cancer therapy and spectroscopic applications. As we have seen, their method of synthesis is quite simple and includes one-step and two-step approaches. Silica nanoshells are used mainly in the field of molecular encapsulation while metal nanoshells are used for cancer therapy. Principal tools for their characterization are absorption spectroscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy. Even though intense research is taking place in this area, many questions remain unanswered rega…
