  2. Biological Applications of Size-Controlled Iron Oxide Magnetic Nanostructures

    Bv73c0509?file=thumbnail
    Description: Magnetic nanostructures (MNS) have become the subject of intense interest due to their superparamagnetic properties and consequently their potential uses in medical diagnostics and therapeutics. In this study, monodisperse magnetite MNSs were synthesized via thermal decomposition of iron(III) acetylacetonate and transferred to aqueous solution using 11-aminoundecanoic acid as the surfactant....

  3. Utilizing the Scanometric Immunoassay for the Ultrasensitive Detection of Aβ-42 Oligomers for the Early Detection of Alzheimer's Disease

    K35694439?file=thumbnail
    Description: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most common forms of dementia, with no current definitive premortem diagnosis. Amyloid beta-peptide derived diffusible ligands, known as ADDLs, have become a key link in the AD specificity for memory loss and are a potential biomarker for AD. In order to develop an...

  4. Efficient Gene Silencing in Neural Cells by Functionalized Gold Nanoparticles

    Pn89d664x?file=thumbnail
    Description: Neurons are difficult to manipulate experimentally. Most transfection reagents used for gene silencing are neurotoxic, and the postmitotic state of neurons prevents the effective use of viral vectors. This study demonstrated the delivery of antisense DNA against target genes by gold nanoparticle oligonucleotide complexes (GNOs) in primary cultures of rat...

  5. Investigation of the Thermoelectric Properties of Metal Chalcogenides with SnSe

    Sq87bt737?file=thumbnail
    Description: Thermoelectric materials, which convert heat energy to electrical energy, may become increasingly important in the world’s energy situation. Through the inclusion of nanoscale features embedded within a thermoelectric bulk material, it has been shown that a corresponding decrease in lattice thermal conductivity results in an enhanced thermoelectric figure of merit,...

  6. Unique Pore-Formation Geometries in Anodized Aluminum Oxide

    Pk02c9902?file=thumbnail
    Description: Under the correct conditions, aluminum can be anodized in an electrochemical cell to produce hexagonally ordered arrays of nanoscale pores. This study examines how adding the chemicals methanol and acetic acid to a typical anodization solution alters pore-growth patterns across the surface oxide layer. The existence of the unique pore-growth...

  7. Optimizing the Localized Surface Plasmon Resonance Biosensor through Self-Assembled Monolayers

    5h73pw09n?file=thumbnail
    Description: This paper investigates the use of self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) to optimize the localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) biosensor for disease detection. Various experiments were done with 1-(9-mercaptononyl)-3,6,9-trioxaundecan-11-ol (TDT) and heptaoxatricosanoic acid (HSA), a new SAM; these included a solvent study to determine refractive index sensitivity and nonspecific binding and specific...

  8. Influence of Dithiocarbamate Cross-Linking Ligands on CdSe Quantum Dot Film Conductivity

    Xg94hp691?file=thumbnail
    Description: Cadmium selenide (CdSe) quantum dots have low conductivity upon synthesis with the original capping ligands. The conductivity can be altered by the addition of other ligands. Thiols, amines, and carboxylic acids, as well as other functional groups, have been shown to improve conductivity in quantum dot films. This investigation describes...

  9. Nanofountain Probes for Single-Cell Transfection: A Comparative Study Assessing Invasiveness

    Db78tc17h?file=thumbnail
    Description: This study examined the invasiveness of nanofountain probes (NFP) when used as a transfection tool for single-cell research. For comparison, the damage caused to cells by more commonly used commercial atomic force microscope (AFM) probes was also studied. Forces were applied to cells at increasing levels using both probes, and...

    Xg94hp68r?file=thumbnail
    Description: The swelling and deswelling behavior of poly(methacrylic acid) (PMAA) thin films and the permeability of poly(styrene) (PS) membranes was investigated using quartz crystal microbalance and ellipsometry. The system consisted of either homopolymer PMAA film or diblock poly(methyl methacrylate)-poly(methacrylic acid) (PMMA-PMAA) brushes with a hydrophobic PS membrane capping layer. Results show...
