Diorganyl Dichalcogenides as Useful Synthons for Colloidal Semiconductor Nanocrystals.
Los Angeles, United States. In Acc Chem Res, Dec 2015
These combined attributes have allowed dichalcogenide precursors to be employed for a wide range of metal chalcogenide nanocrystal syntheses, including those for In2S3, SnxGe1-xSe, SnTe, Cu2-xSySe1-y, ZnSe, CdS, CdSe, MoSe2, WSe2, BiSe, and CuFeS2.
Supramolecular cyclodextrin-based drug nanocarriers.
Coimbra, Portugal. In Chem Commun (camb), May 2015
Supramolecular systems formed by the binding of several cyclodextrins (CDs) to polymers or lipids, either via non-covalent or covalent links, open a wide range of possibilities for the delivery of active substances.
Cell-cell interactions driving kidney morphogenesis.
Brisbane, Australia. In Curr Top Dev Biol, 2014
Subsequent fusion to the CDs, nephron segmentation and maturation, and formation of a patent glomerular basement membrane also require specialized cell-cell interactions.
Fluorescent carbon dots for biolmaging and biosensing applications.
In J Biomed Nanotechnol, 2014
Due to the excellent biocompatibility, carbon dots (CDs), which are attracting considerable attention as new quantum-sized carbon-containing fluorescent nanoparticles, are becoming both an important class of imaging probes and a versatile platform for biosensors.
Synthesis and patterning of tunable multiscale materials with engineered cells.
Cambridge, United States. In Nat Mater, 2014
We also interfaced curli fibrils with inorganic materials, such as gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) and quantum dots (QDs), and used these capabilities to create an environmentally responsive biofilm-based electrical switch, produce gold nanowires and nanorods, co-localize AuNPs with CdTe/CdS QDs to modulate QD fluorescence lifetimes, and nucleate the formation of fluorescent ZnS QDs.
