We demonstrate that nano-hydrophobicity, which governs the biological aggressiveness of nanoparticles, is determined by the outermost regions of surface ligands. We have also successfully modulated nano-hydrophobicity using systematic surface ligand modifications and built the first computational model of nano-hydrophobicity.
