Noble metal nanomaterials are a kind of special nanomaterials with unique optical, electrical, and catalytic properties. The noble metal-based nanozymes are a new research frontier of noble metal nanomaterials in biomedical field. Noble metal-based nanozymes possess good stability, controllable enzyme-like activity, multiple enzyme-like activities, and excellent biocompatibility and hold great potential in biomedical applications. In this review, we summarized the enzyme mimic types, enzyme catalytic mechanisms, activity regulation, and potential biomedical applications of noble metal-based nanozymes.

Key words: Noble metal, Nanozyme, Catalysis, Detection, Disease theranostics
