Abstract The effective use of the gold nanoparticle (AuNPs) conjugated drugs for targeted drug delivery applications is one of the most promising research areas in the field of cancer. Herein, we aimed to establish a nano drug conjugated with docetaxel as a possible therapy option. Gold nanoparticles were synthesized by chemical reduction method. This is followed by the conjugation with an anticancer drug, docetaxel (Dtx) by a non-covalent method and folic acid (FA) was conjugated by a covalent ...
