Patent Status: 

Patent Filed

Indian Patent Applicaton No: 

570/DEL/2015

Patent Category: 

Overview: 

Synthesis of hydrophobic and hydrophilic nanoparticles for delivery of bioimaging agents

TEM of nanoparticle-loaded carbon capsules

Key Features: 

  • Utilising carbon capsules as Nanoreactors.
  • Fabrication of multiple nanoparticles encapsulated in a single carbon capsule in a simple and versatile, controllable, and relatively nanoparticle independent manner.
  • Various nanoparticles inside the mesoporous carbon capsules.
  • Virtually any type of nanoparticle can be encapsulated effectively with very little modification to the nananoparticle synthesis technique.
  • Preserves the stabilizing ligands present on the nanoparticle surface thus conserving the bioimaging and other beneficial properties of the nanoparticles

Applications: 

  • For bioimaging
  • Multimodal imaging
  • Therapeutic applications
  • Catalysis, photocatalysis, electrochemical applications
  • Nanosynthesis vessels for CNTs
