So far, the synthesis and support of gold nanoparticles on layered double hydroxide were carried out using cyclodextrins, sodium borohydride or citrate, and hydrazine sulfate as reducing agents [20-26].
Hydrazine sulfate trials involving cancer patients were performed in Russia (then the Soviet Union) and by researchers at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center during the 1970s and 1980s.
It is quite interesting that in the past Canada researchers practiced unconventional cancer treatments with hydrazine sulfates. Although the previous study had proved that eleven hydrazine derivatives, aromatic amines showed direct mutagenicity and toxicity toward Salmonella Typhimurium and associated mutagenic process such derivatives as - phenylhydrazine, 2-nitro-phenyl-hydrazine, 4-nitrophenylhydrazine, 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine, p-tolihydrazine, and 4-nitroaniline [16].
