Nanoparticles mediated chiral interactions of pharmaceutical compounds: a combined SERS and DFT study

Rares Stiufiuc

University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Cluj-Napoca

He is Associate Professor in the Pharmaceutical Physics &Biophysics Department and Head of the BioNanoScopy Department at University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Cluj-Napoca, Romania.  He defended his Ph.D. Thesis in the field of Solid State Physics at Babes-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca and Universite Paris Sud, Orsay France and spent 18 months as postodoctoral research associate at Institute dÉlectronique, Microelectronique et Nanotehnologie, Lille, France. His recent research activities are focused on the synthesis of different classes of multifunctional nanohybrids with applications in targeted drug delivery but also on developing new ultrasensitive techniques for biomolecules detection in biological fluids.    


The investigation of pharmaceutical compounds by means of Raman spectroscopy has attracted much interest in the last years. The method allows getting information about structural properties of different molecules based on... [ view full abstract ]
