The property utilizes the large surface area available to load materials. Due to their small size, nanomaterials can be transported into cells and nuclei. Specificity to the target can be achieved by appropriate labeling. The materials put in can be subjected to magnetic fields, photons, etc. and can respond to all these situations. The diagnosti…
