Fabrication of ZnV2O6 nanostructures: Their energy storage and PL properties
We report here large scale synthesis of ZnV2O6 nanostructures via facile, template free and cost effective method. For the first time hydrogen storage and supercapacitor properties of ZnV2O6 nanostructures were measured, which were found to be 1.32wt% and 380F/g, respectively. Electrochemical supercapacitor device was fabricated using three electrode configuration and electrochemical measurements revealed ZnV2O6 nanostructures as a promising candidate for energy storage/conversion material. PL measurements on ZnV2O6 showed a broad emission centered at 392nm. Our investigation has shown that ZnV2O6 nanostructures has the po...

Tuning the opto-electrical properties of SnO2 thin films by Ag+1 and In+3 co-doping
Publication date: Available online 23 May 2015 Source:Materials Science and Engineering: B Author(s): Younes Mouchaal , Alexandru Enesca , Ciprian Mihoreanu , Abdelbacet Khelil , Anca Duta In this work transparent thin films of Ag+1-In+3 co-doped SnO2 were obtained using robotic spray pyrolysis. The effect of silver doping concentration on their optical, electrical and structural properties was investigated. Silver co-doping was varied between 0 and 12at% in the precursor solution keeping the concentration of indium fixed at 2at%. The optical transmittance has values between 90.3 and 82.7%, when the Ag+1 doping ranges fr...

Dual-function nanosystem for synergetic cancer chemo-/radiotherapy through ROS-mediated signaling pathways.
Abstract Radioresistance and limitation of irradiative dosage usually lead to failure in depletion of hypoxic tumors. Herein we developed multifunctional mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) as a carrier of a novel anticancer selenoamino acid (selenocystine, SeC), to achieve synergistic chemo-/radiotherapy. This multifunctional nanosystem effectively sensitizes cancer cells to X-ray radiotherapy. Conjugation of TAT cell penetrating peptide and transferrin to the surface of MSNs significantly enhances its internalization in cancer cells through receptor-mediated endocytosis. SeC@MSNs-Tf/TAT significantly enhanced ...

Evaluation of cell responses toward adhesives with different photoinitiating systems
The photoinitiator diphenyl-(2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyl)phosphine oxide (TPO) is more reactive than a camphorquinone/amine (CQ) system, and TPO-based adhesives obtained a higher degree of conversion (DC) with fewer leached monomers. The hypothesis tested here is that a TPO-based adhesive is less toxic than a CQ-based adhesive. (Source: Dental Materials)

Effects of iron oxide nanoparticles on biological responses and MR imaging properties in human mammary healthy and breast cancer epithelial cells
In this study, we evaluated the cellular uptake and biological responses in vitro of ultrasmall SPIONs (USPIONs, diameters < 50 nm). We compared the cellular responses between breast epithelia isolated from healthy and breast cancer donors after exposure to carboxy‐terminated USPIONs (10 and 30 nm PEG‐coated, 10 and 30 nm non‐PEG‐coated). The particles were characterized using transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS) and gel electrophoresis. Cellular interactions with USPIONs were assessed by confocal microscopy and TEM. Cellular uptake of USPIONs was quantified using ICP‐MS. ...
