Development of Nanoparticle-Based Gold Contrast Agent for Photoacoustic Tomography

, , , , , ,
Photoacoustic tomography (PAT) utilizes non-ionizing energy to obtain structural/functional information with high spatial resolution and sensitivity. Heterogeneous absorption of optical energy in biological tissues results in differentially expressed acoustic signals yielding spatial/temporal information. A critically [...]

Structure of Ni nanoparticles/TiO2 films prepared by sol-gel dip-coating

, , , , , , , ,
Titania thin films were synthesized by sol-gel dip-coating method with metallic Ni nanoparticles from an organometallic precursor. Titania matrix and Ni nanoparticles were prepared separately. Titania precursor solution was prepared mixing titanium isopropoxide in isopropanol [...]

Biphenyl-functionalized Ethane-silica Hybrid Materials with Ordered Hexagonal Mesoporous Structure

, , , , , ,
A biphenyl-containing hybrid organic-inorganic mesoporous materials have been synthesized and characteized. The synthesis was done via surfactant-templated polymerization of 4,4’-bis(triethoxysilyl)biphenyl and 1,2-bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane under basic condition. The composition, structure and morphology of the mesoporous materials were [...]
