Their delivery power awakens
In a recent combined experimental and computational study, it was shown that ReaxFF can realistically describe functonalized gold nanoparticles to understand and predict antibiotic release. This proves great promise for simulations to aid the further development of controlled nanoparticle delivery of in situ drug release.
