Hydrothermal approach to a carbon graphite encapsulated FeCo nanocrystals for diagnosis, hyperthermia therapy and siRNA delivery

, , , , , , , ,
An effective therapeutic approach against cancer requires the combination of several modalities such as chemotherapy, radiation, and hyperthermia. However, the development of multifunctional nanomaterial-based systems that can provide the combined therapeutics and molecular imaging with [...]

First-principles studies of electrophilic molecules on the carbon nanotubes

, , , , , , ,
Recently we have reported that some electrophilic molecules, such as 2,4,6-triphenylpyrylium tetrafluoroborate (2,4,6-TPPT) and 1,3-benzodithiolylium tetrafluoroborate (1,3-BDYT), preferentially interact with metallic single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). It resulted in selective suppression of conductance in metallic carbon [...]
