Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLN) are widely used in pharmaceutical and cosmetic applications. SLN, incorporating approximately 105 ferrocene units, as core-enriched redox active nanoparticles, were used as a model for probing interactions with solid-supported lipid membranes. Resonance Enhanced Surface Impedance Spectroscopy (RESI) is shown as a sensitive technique for monitoring real time interactions of the soft redox nanoparticles. Cyclic voltammetry is compared as an end of experiment technique.
