Multicomponent nanoparticles containing two or more different types of functionalities show unique physical and chemical properties, leading to significantly enhanced performance. In this study, we have developed a new one-pot method to prepare Fe/FeS nanoparticles using dithionite at room temperature. The FeS precipitates on the Fe surface are formed by(More)
Surgical site infections caused by methicillin-resistant and methicillin-susceptible Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA, MSSA) lead to patient hospitalization for an extended period coupled with concomitant hospitalization resources and cost. The detrimental effect resulting from the onset of these infections poses great health risks, leading to death in some(More)
In order to impede infection and achieve accelerated wound healing in the postorthopaedic surgery patients, a simple and benign procedure for creating nanotubular or nanofibrillar structure of photoactive TiO(2) on the surface of Ti plates and wires is described. The nanoscale TiO(2) films on titanium were grown by hydrothermal processing in one case and by(More)
In most cases authors are permitted to post their version of the article (e.g. in Word or Tex form) to their personal website or institutional repository. Authors requiring further information regarding Elsevier's archiving and manuscript policies are encouraged to visit: Abstract The conversion of logistics fuels to hydrogen by steam reforming is(More)
Postsurgery infections cause prolonged hospitalization, incurring increased patient and hospital costs, making it increasingly vital to develop an effective solution for the mitigation and elimination of infection buildup at these sites. Incorporation of a bactericidal device at the infection-prone sites provides the capability of attacking bacterial growth(More)
Sensing mechanisms of gases on solid structures are predominantly surface-dominated. Benign surface features in terms of small grain size, high aspect ratio, large surface area and open and connected porosity, are required to realize a successful sensor material. Such morphological artifacts are a function of the fabrication and processing techniques(More)
