Tuning Drug Release Profile from Nanoporous Gold Thin Films

Nanoporous gold (np-Au) with its high surface area to volume ratio, tunable pore morphology, ease of surface modification with well-studied thiol chemistry, as well as integration with conventional microfabrication techniques is a promising candidate for controlled drug delivery studies. While it has been demonstrated that np-Au can retain and release drugs, release mechanisms and governing parameters are unclear. This paper reports on the effect of film thickness and morphology on the molecular release from np-Au films.
