A group of nanoparticles called "GUMBOS" is as varied as their culinary namesake implies, with a wide range of potential applications from cancer therapy to sensors. The latest episode of Prized Science features Isiah Warner, Ph.D., this year's winner of the ACS Award in Analytical Chemistry. Among other research, the award recognizes Warner's work developing GUMBOS, which is an acronym for "Group of Uniform Materials Based on Organic Salts." In the video, Warner explains that the versatility of these nanoparticles, which are about 1/100,000th of the width of a human hair, comes from the ability to mix, match and tailor them to have the specific features that scientists might need for different applications.
