Studies on the Toxicity, Bioaccumulation and Biopersistence of Model and Commercial Chemical Mechanical Planarization Slurries with Daphnia Magna
Nanoparticle (NP) abrasives are components of chemical mechanical planarization (CMP) slurries used to polish wafers of semiconducting materials such as silicon. The semiconductor industry is interested in understanding ...
Catalase Immobilization in Wrinkled Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles
Wrinkled mesoporous silica (WMS) has been shown to be a promising material for enzyme immobilization. The WMS possesses a unique wrinkled structure with conical shaped pores which radiate from the center to the surface ...
Developing a Drug Delivery and Imaging System on a Virus-Like Particle Platform
Nanoparticle based therapeutics have been proved to improve therapeutic efficacy and reduce the off-target toxicity. However, poor monodispersity and long term bioaccumulation toxicity have been the obstacles for the ...
Fabrication of Core-Shell Bio-Nanocomposites via Biomimetic Mineralization of Metal Organic Frameworks
Biomineralization is one of the nature-owned masteries that the organisms have exploited for millions of years to produce organic-inorganic hybrid materials with highly customized compositions, microstructures, morphologies ...
Design of Polylactones for Drug Delivery
Cancer is one of the major causes of death worldwide and has motivated researchers to look for better and more promising treatments than surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. The use of chemo and radiation therapy ...
Emerging Classes of Smart Materials: Organic Single Crystals to Biological Nano Particles
Stimuli responsive materials, also known as “smart” materials, are capable of altering their properties in a controllable fashion in response to external stimuli. While most reported smart materials are based on synthetic ...
