Abstract
A green method was used for producing gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) using chitosan as a natural cationic, biodegradable and biocompatible polymer. In this method, chitosan acts as a reducing and stabilizing agent for the synthesis of Au NPs. Different concentrations of chitosan solutions (0.01%, 0.05%, 0.1%, 0.2%, 0.5% and 1%) were applied. In an attempt to mitigate the side effects of anti-cancer drug, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), through reducing drug...
