Self-assembly of inorganic nanoparticle amphiphiles for biomedical applications
Ensembles of interacting nanoparticles (NPs) can exhibit novel collective properties ─ arising from the coupling between NPs ─ that can be radically different from individuals. Realizing the enormous potential of NPs in ...
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 ...
Tailoring Guanosine Hydrogels for Various Applications
Supramolecular hydrogels are of current interest for their ease of use, potential biocompatibility, and reactivity to stimuli. These gel materials have found use in a number of fields ranging from drug delivery and tissue ...
DESIGN OF HYBRID POLYMER- INORGANIC NANOASSEMBLIES FOR BIOMEDICAL APPLICATIONS
Assembly of inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) can give rise to novel collective properties due to the coupling between adjacent subunits, which are not accessible from individual nanoparticles. Among them, hybrid polymer-inorganic ...
DESIGN AND HIERARCHICAL ASSEMBLY OF AMPHIPHILIC SUPRACOLLOIDS THAT MIMIC BIMOLECULAR COMPOUNDS
Self-assembly of nanoparticles (NPs) into desired structures with precisely controlled NP organization is crucial to the property discovery and application of inorganic NPs. Despite tremendous efforts made in the past ...
Bringing New Chemistry to Guanosine Hydrogels
Molecular self-assembly is a powerful method to construct functional materials such as supramolecular hydrogels. Hydrogels contain mostly water but show solid-like rheology. Nucleosides and nucleotides contain rich recognition ...
