BACKGROUND: Plasmonic nanomaterials asnoble metal-based materials have unique optical characteristic upon exposure to incident light with an appropriate wavelength. Today, generated plasmon by nanoparticles has receivedincreasingattention in nanomedicine; from diagnosis, tissue and tumor imaging to therapeutic and biomedical engineering.
AIM OF REVIEW: Due to rapid growing of knowledge in the inorganic nanomaterial field, this paper aims to be a comprehensive and authoritative, critical, and broad interest to the scientific community. Here, we introduce basic physicochemical properties of plasmonic nanoparticles and their applications in biomedical and tissue engineering The first part of each division explain the basic physico-chemical properties of each nanomaterial with a graphical abstract. In the second part, concepts by describing classic examples taken from the biomedical and biomedical engineering literature are illustrated. The selected case studies are intended to give an overview of the different systems and mechanisms utilized in nanomedicine.
KEY SCIENTIFIC CONCEPTS OF REVIEW: In this communication, we have tried to introduce the needed concepts of plasmonic nanomaterials and their implication in a particular part of biomedical over the last 20 years. Moreover, in each part with insist on limitations, a perspective is presented which can guide a researcher how they can develop or modify new scaffolds for biomedical engineering.
