The work presented in this thesis aims to downgrade the side effects provoked by old-fashioned chemotherapy, by designing a versatile nanoparticle and demonstrating its capability of targeted delivery for a chemotherapeutic agent. Specifically, we have designed a multifunctional nanoparticle by employing iron oxide XFe2O4 (X = Fe/Mn/Co) (core)/gold (shell) based magneto/plasmonic core-shell nanoparticles using multiple gold iterations by seed-mediated method and used for cancer theranostic approaches such as
  • Drug delivery

  • Magnetic resonance imaging agent

  • Hyperthermal agent
