Gold nanoshells on 1.1 μm diameter silica cores were produced via a seeded growth approach and their quality evaluated using optical measurements. The particles were combined with polycaprolactone to produce a flexible biocompatible composite film with high conductivity (1.51 S cm-1) and relatively low effective gold loading (16.86 wt%) in comparison with other reports in the literature. The morphology of the composite was shown to comprise nanoshell-filled pores percolating a polymer-rich matrix. The obtained films have potential for biomedical applications such as in patches for cardiac tissue engineering, combining biocompatibility, flexibility and electrical conductivity. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
