Preparation of Polymer-Coated Functionalized Ferrimagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles*
A simple chemical method to synthesize PMAA coated maghemite nanoparticles is described. Monomer methacrylic acid molecules were absorbed onto the synthesized ferrimagnetic nanoparticles followed by polymerization. The ...
Tubular Organization of SnO₂ Nanocrystallites for Improved Lithium Ion Battery Anode Performance
Porous tin oxide nanotubes were obtained by vacuum infiltration of tin oxide nanoparticles into porous aluminum oxide membranes, followed by calcination. The porous tin oxide nanotube arrays so prepared were characterized ...
NIR-Sensitive Au-Au₂S Nanoparticles for Drug Delivery
Near IR (NIR) sensitive Au-Au₂S nanoparticles were prepared by mixing HAuCl₄ and Na₂S in aqueous solutions. An anti-tumor drug, cis-platin, was adsorbed onto Au-Au₂S nanoparticle surface via the 11-mercaptoundecanoic acid ...
Glucose-Sensitive Nanoparticles for Controlled Insulin Delivery
A novel reverse microemulsion (RM) mediated synthesis of glucose-responsive nanoparticles was developed for controlled insulin delivery. Nanoparticles were constructed using a model system comprised of dextran, poly(α-1,6 ...
Nanoparticles for Targeted Drug Delivery
Nanoparticles were synthesized and modified for target drug delivery. The research involved the aqueous synthesis of near infrared (NIR) sensitive Au-Au<sub>2</sub>S nanoparticles. An anti-cancer drug (<i>cis-platin</i>) ...
