Stability of Functionalized Magnetic Particles in a Physiologic Fluid

, , , , , , , ,
Magnetic materials are widely used in biomedical applications such as magnetic separation, magnetic resonance imaging, drug delivery and hyperthermia. In these applications the nanoparticles are functionalized in a core/shell type with polymeric materials which contains [...]

Structural refinement and photoluminescence properties of cube-like (Ca1-xCux)TiO3 crystals synthesized by the microwave-hydrothermal method

, , , , , , ,
In this work, (Ca1-xCux)TiO3 crystals with (x = 0, 0.01 and 0.02), were synthesized by the microwave-hydrothermal method at 140ºC for 32 min. The photo-physical properties were studied to analyze the influence of Cu2+ doping [...]

CdMoO4 synthesized by a microwave-assisted hydrothermal method and their photoluminescence and photocatality properties

, , , , , , , ,
Metal molybdates had a high application potential in various fields such as photoluminescence, microwave applications, optical fibers, scintillator materials, humidity sensors, and catalysis. In this work CdMoO4 nanoparticles were obtained under hydrothermal conditions using microwave [...]

Synthesis and Characterization of Nickel Ferrite (NiFe2O4) nanoparticles with Silver Addition for H2S gas detectors

, , , , , , , ,
The objective of this work is to study the influence of silver as additive in nickel ferrite sensors to improve the hydrogen sulfide detection sensibility. Sensors made of NiFe2O4 nanoparticles with and without Silver (3 [...]

Nanogel Star Polymer Nanostructures of Controlled Size, Molecular Architecture and Functionality: No Assembly Required

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
We have developed versatile routes to nanogel core, multiarm star polymeric unimolecular amphiphiles that provides exquisite control over molecular size, polydispersity, chain and periphery functionality which eliminate the dynamic equilibrium associated with polymeric micelles. . [...]

Luminescent Terbium/Europium chelates-based Silica Nanoparticles : Stability and Incorporation Efficiency measured by Radioactive Probe

, , , , , ,
We describe an original method based on europium-chelated radioactive measurements to investigate and compare the incorporation (by a reverse microemulsion-mediated sol-gel process without covalent bond) and the stability of two different organolanthanides into silica nanoparticles. [...]
