Abstract. The new method for decontamination of biological liquids (blood or blood plasma, for instance) from viruses is proposed. The method is based on the efficient attraction between nanoparticles and nanostructured surface, under which the surface plasmon-polaritons propagate.

Keywords: nanoparticle, virus, local-field enhancement, surface plasmon-polariton.
