演講摘要

Noble-metal nanodots, or nanoclusters, which comprise several or tens of atoms and are typically smaller than 2 nm in diameter, have attracted considerable attention for their potential utility in interdisciplinary applications such as biological trackers, photosynthetic catalysts, and optical sensors. In my lab, we have successfully developed gold and platinum nanoclusters to perform in nanomedicine applications, including anti-sepsis and cancer killers. But why were gold and platinum chosen? The former was selected because the Compendium of Materia Medica notes that gold can be eaten, and this made me wonder if our ancestors had already learned of some special health benefits that gold offers. As for platinum, it was selected because cisplatin is currently the only anticancer drug on the market that contains platinum, and I wanted to know if platinum itself could be used as a drug, as this would help address the shortcomings of cisplatin (i.e. systemic toxicity and drug resistance).
