Halloysite Clay Nanotubes: Characterization, Biocompatibility and Use as Drug Carriers

, , , , , , , , ,
Halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) are efficient nano-containers capable of entrapping a range of active agents within the inner lumen, followed by their retention and slow release. Halloysite is a green environmentally friendly object available in commercial [...]

Nanocarriers for Cancer Therapy

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
Drug nano-colloids encapsulated by combination of layer by layer (LbL) techniques and ultrasonication, phytochemical encapsulated-artificial oleosomes and drug-loading clay nanotubes have been uptaken by neoplastic cells. Morpho- mechanical changes induced by such nanocarriers in living [...]

Directed assembly of magnetic nanoparticles in polymers: the formation of anisotropic plastic films containing aligned nanowires

, , , , , , , , ,
We present a study of the dynamical formation of spatially localized arrays of 1-D aligned magnetic nanowires in plastic films. We demonstrate a straightforward technique, easily reproducible, where by specifically varying experimental conditions we can [...]
