Research in nanoscience has garnered much interestbecause of the different properties of small structures compared to the respective bulk material. The unique properties of nanostructures make them important in biological imaging, diagnostics and therapeutics, drug-delivery, and Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS). Metal nanoparticles, specifically Ag and Au, are attractive for medical applications because of their lack of biotoxicity. Study of nanoparticles is interesting because their intrinsic properties can be tuned by varying their size, structure, and composition.
