Development of optimized therapeutic platforms for magnetic fluid hyperthermia in adjuvant cancer therapies
Magnetic Fluid Hyperthermia (MFH) has a great potential as an adjuvant in cancer therapy, enhancing the effects of antineoplastic agents, sensitizing resistant cancers and reducing undesired side effects. When compared ...
Pickering liquid crystal emulsions: Influence of mixed-monolayer protected gold nanoparticles on colloidal stability and surfactant-induced ordering transitions
Liquid crystal (LC) droplets dispersed in aqueous phases (e.g., LC-in-water emulsions) provide a versatile platform for the design of droplet-based LC sensors that can respond to the presence of chemical and biological ...
Observation of enhanced Raman scattering as a result of coupling between localized plasmons and surface polariton waves associated with metal-semiconductor nanocomposites
We report the observation of enhanced Raman scattering as a result of the coupling between the localized surface plasmon (LSP) of metal nanoparticles (NP) and the surface plasmon polariton (SPP) associated with a thin metal ...
Microstructure and rheology of Janus particle suspensions
The aggregate sizes and morphologies formed with colloidal particles have important consequences on the rheological behavior of colloidal suspensions. Self- and directed-assembly are the most used phenomena to produce ...
Novel separation methods for removing nanoparticles and copper from chemical mechanical planarization wastes
Chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) wastewater emanating from semiconductor processing contains copper (II) ions and either alumina and/or silica nanoparticles. The efficiency of biotreatment schemes to remove copper ...
Atomic pair distribution study of the growth of Pt nanoparticles in zeolites
The Pair Distribution Function (PDF) is a total scattering method used to study the local structure of a material and yields a function in real space with peaks that represent the interatomic distances. In this work, we ...
