The objective of this research was to explore the feasibility of using SPI nanoparticles to improve the absorption of vitamin B12 (VB12) using in-vitro and ex-vivo models. The molecular interactions between soy proteins and VB12 were firstly studied and the results revealed that VB12 was bound to...
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) has evolved into a powerful analytical measurement technique with the potential for single molecule detection. The technological advancement of handheld Raman instrumentation is powering the development of SERS applications in a variety of industries....
Germanium nanomaterials have many potential applications based on their size-tunable optical and electronic properties, for example in photodetectors, photovoltaics and non-volatile memory. In this work, the synthesis of Ge nanoparticles by two different methods based on tailorability through the...
Synthesis and screening of heterogeneous multimetallic nanoparticle catalysts for mono-, poly- and heteroaromatic hydrogenation activity under mild conditionsDownload
Nanoparticle catalysts have shown to be advantageous over traditional catalysts for many reasons and active for a wide variety of reactions. This thesis describes an approach for the synthesis and screening of heterogeneous multimetallic nanoparticle catalysts for aromatic hydrogenation activity...
The elements of Group 14 show an extensive range of chemical behaviors. Lying at the boundary between metals and non-metals, some members of Group 14, namely silicon and germanium, are intermediate in their properties. These semiconductors are extremely important in science and technology. Si,...
Synthesis, Surface Functionalization of Germanium Nanoparticles, and Their Application in Polymer Hybrid Solar CellsDownload
Germanium nanoparticles (GeNPs) have immense potential in various applications, such as opto-electronics, batteries, bioimaging, etc. Germanium has a small band gap (0.67 eV in bulk), large exciton Bohr radius (~24 nm), high absorption coefficient (ca. 2.0 × 105 cm 1 at 2 eV), and high carrier...
The Influence of Specific Ions and System Architecture on the Recognition and Reactivity of Two Charged Materials: DNA-Modified Gold Nanoparticle Aggregates and Planar SilicaDownload
DNA functionalized gold nanoparticles (GNP–DNA) offer simple colorimetric nucleic acid sensing with high selectivity and sensitivity. Consequently, they are promising in genetic profiling, disease diagnostics, and forensic applications. In the presence of a target nucleic acid, GNP–DNA forms...
Engineered nanomaterials (NMs), tiny synthetic materials having at least one dimension between one and one hundred billionths of a metre, are increasingly being developed for and incorporated into a myriad of commercial, consumer, and industrial applications due to their unique and tailorable...
Emulsion flooding and heavy oil recovery by in-situ emulsion formation have been reported to show great potential in enhancing heavy oil recovery. Emulsion stability is the key issue controlling the success of this process; conventionally, surfactants were used to facilitate emulsification and...
The confined impinging jet reactor gives efficient mixing performance as required for fast reactions. In this work the mixing performance of CIJR is characterized through three measures: estimates of the energy dissipation, micromixing efficiency based on the yield of a homogeneous...
