Functional Nanostructure Synthesis and Properties
The dissertation addressed challenges in the nanostructure synthesis, applied the materials to engineering fields, such as lithium battery material, fluorescent and magnetic drug deliveries; and developed new characterization ...
CONDUCTIVE POLYMER NANOTUBE PATCH FOR FAST AND CONTROLLED <italic>IN VIVO</italic> TRANSDERMAL DRUG DELIVERY
Transdermal drug delivery has created new applications for existing therapies and offered an alternative to the traditional oral route where drugs can prematurely metabolize in the liver causing adverse side effects. Opening ...
Immobilized Seed-mediated Growth of Two Dimensional Arrays of Shaped Metallic Nanocrystals
Acknowledging that the optical properties of noble metal nanocrystals (NMNCs) are largely determined by their size, composition, and shape, the demand for NMNCs with controlled shapes is expected to increase. To expand the ...
SYNTHESIS AND POLYMER-MEDIATED REGIOSELECTIVE SELF-ASSEMBLY OF SHAPED PLASMONIC NANOPARTICLES
Plasmonic nanoparticles with collective excitations of the conduction-band electrons have many potential applications in surfaceenhanced spectroscopies, photocatalysis, photovoltaics, and biomedicine. The plasmonic ...
Hybrid plasmonic tubular nanostructures: synthesis, optical and photoelectrocatalytic property
Utilizing sustainable and clean solar energy in the visible-NIR range to drive chemical transformation has been a key resolution to solve the energy crisis. Recently, rational design of photocatalysts that conjugate plasmonic ...
Fluorescent Carbon Nanotubes as Molecular Sensors and Color-Center Hosts
This thesis demonstrates the application of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) as single-digit nanopores for molecular sieving and addresses a fundamental challenge pertaining to controlled synthesis of organic ...
