Steinmetz, N. F., Shah, S. N., Barclay, J. E., Rallapalli, G., Lomonossoff, G. P., & Evans, D. J. (2009). Virus-templated silica nanoparticles. Small, 5(7), 813-816.

An engineered variant of the plant virus, Cowpea mosaic virus, can template the controlled fabrication of silica nanoparticles of ≈30 nm diameter under environmentally benign conditions at ambient temperature and in aqueous solvent. This is the first... Read More about Virus-templated silica nanoparticles.
