It is very important to develop efficient drugs for the cure of Alzheimer's disease. Here, gold nanoparticle probes were utilized to acquire the ability of 13 kinds of compounds to inhibit the Cu2+ induced β-amyloid peptide aggregation. Ten of then were screened as the effective inhibitors. The relationships between the chemical structures and their inhibitory efficiencies were also studied as well. We also used the screened molecules to regulate the morphology changes of Cu2+-β-amyloid aggregates and to decrease the production of H2O2 formed by the interaction of Cu2+ and β-amyloid peptide. This research is significant to the study of Alzheimer's disease.

Key words: Alzheimer's disease, gold nanoparticles, inhibitor
