Abstract

The main goals of the research are to study the drug delivery nanoparticle, G4 PAMAM (polyamidoamine) dendrimer, using spectroscopic and thermodynamic methods and, based on the unique properties of G4 PAMAM dendrimer, create new, stable nano-sized (∼5 nm) metalorganic nanocomplexes with silver atoms, which have a strong absorption in visible area and it can be used as a photo thermotherapeutic agent for the treatment of cancer cells.

Keywords: G4 PAMAM (polyamidoamine) dendrimers, DNA, silver ions, nanomedicine; phototherapy
