Imaging the Distribution of High Colloidal Stability Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles (MSNs) with PET and MRI

, , , , , , , , , ,
Biocompatible and high porosity mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) represent a significant advance in drug delivery applications, currently entering clinical validation. It will be necessary to track these drug vectors over time with medical imaging techniques. [...]

The scavenging of reactive oxygen species and the potential for cell protection by fullerenols with different isoelectric points

, , , , , , , , , ,
Fullerenols were known as the major water-soluble derivatives of fullerene that possess particular significance biological effects such as anticancer active and free radical scavengers. We have reported a novel method for purifying nanoparticles of fullerenols, [...]

Triplet-Triplet Annihilation Upconversion in Water Environment: Biocompatible and Non-invasive All-optical Temperature Sensing for Living Objects

, , , , , , ,
A realistic temperature sensing alternative for life-science objects could be the process of triplet-triplet annihilation upconversion in water environment (TTA – UC): It is inherently micro-scale sensing techniques – the sensing function is carried out [...]

Study the Correlations Between Direct Electron Transfer Rate Constants in Four Types of Nanobiomimetic Sensors and the Ability to Kill Cancer Cells from Anti-Cancer Candidate Compounds

, , , , , ,
We report a new approach to study Direct Electron Transfer (DET) rate constants between an electrode surface and an active biomimetic receptor using four types of gold nanobiomimetic sensors. The goal is to find the [...]

Mechanism and Free Energy of DNA Hybridization on Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes Using Adaptive Biasing Force Simulations

, , , , , ,
DNA-carbon nanotube hybrids (DNA-NT) consist of single stranded DNA self-assembled to the sidewall of single-walled carbon nanotubes. DNA-NT show great promise for applications in nanotechnology, including chemical sensing and sequence-specific DNA detection. Details of the [...]
