"Using Water and Light to Engineer Materials from Minerals and Organics Resources for Cancer Therapy

Body-centred The present work reports an environmentally friendly green processing approach to synthesise new materials for drug delivery and cancer therapy.  Visible light is used to activate aqueous suspension of minerals and organic compounds at room-temperature to synthesise biologically active nanoparticles, which are used for the treatment of soft-tissue cancer.
