MULTIFUNCTIONAL STIMULUS-SENSITIVE MICROCAPSULES AND NANOCRYSTALS FOR EARLY DIAGNOSIS AND EFFICACIOUS TREATMENT OF LUNG AND BREAST CANCERS (State Contract no. 16.1034.2017/PCh)

In the course of applied research on Multifunctional Stimulus-Sensitive Microcapsules and Nanocrystals for Early Diagnosis and Efficacious Treatment of Lung and Breast Cancers (State Contract no. 16.1034.2017/PCh, Grant Agreement of May 31, 2017), methods for obtaining plasmonic, magnetic, and excitonic nanomaterials have been developed in the Laboratory of Nano-Bioengineering.Samples of CdSe/ZnS fluorescent semiconductor quantum dots with a fluorescence quantum yield higher of more than 80% and highly reproducible optical properties, spherical magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles with a high sensitivity to magnetic field, and silver nanoparticles with characteristic peaks of plasmon scattering in extinction spectra have been obtained. All these materials will be used as components of the microcapsules, ensuring their fluorescence characteristics and sensitivity to external stimuli.
