The origin of the interface formation appearing due to the realization of contacts to ultrathin gold nanowire devices is revealed. Such interfaces play an important role in transport mechanisms in nanowire structures and can determine the electrical and operating parameters of a nanodevice. Based on experimental results, the specific electrical properties(More)
This paper describes ultrathin gold nanowires (NWs) and nanoparticles (NPs) prepared by oleylamine (OA) synthesis and their assembly with horseradish peroxidase enzyme (HRP) for bioelectrochemical sensing of hydrogen peroxide for the first time. The immobilization of oxidoreductase enzyme HRP on the electrodes modified with OA gold nanostructures (OANSs) is(More)
Ultrathin metal nanowires are ultimately analytical tools that can be used to survey the interfacial properties of the functional groups of organic molecules immobilized on nanoelectrodes. The high ratio of surface to bulk atoms makes such ultrathin nanowires extremely electrically sensitive to adsorbates and their charge and/or polarity, although little is(More)
Solid state nanoporous membranes show great potential as support structures for biointerfaces. In this paper, we present a technique for fabricating nanoporous alumina membranes under constant-flow conditions in a microfluidic environment. This approach allows the direct integration of the fabrication process into a microfluidic setup for performing(More)
Electrochemistry based unidimensional nanoelectrodes, such as carbon nanotubes and metallic nanowires, is now a reality that is leaving the academy and reaching a broad range of high-tech companies around the world. The intrinsic properties of electron-electron interactions, sizes and geometries significantly differentiate those nanostructures from(More)
The prevention of oxidative reactions in a biological medium as well as the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in chronic degenerative diseases are questions that continue to be investigated. Electrochemical biosensors have shown attractive features to evaluate the oxidative stress condition at a level comparable to chromatographic and spectroscopic(More)
Graphene and related materials has been studied aiming their use in several applications including electrochemical sensing systems for a large number of different analytes. However, there have been proportionally only a few studies discussing deeply the implications of the different variables that could be tuned in the preparations of these materials for(More)
A case of progressive osteoradionecrosis after cobalt-60 radiation has been presented. A rational, but aggressive, treatment has been described. The morbidity of the procedure is minimal when proper instrumentation is available. The postoperative results are esthetically pleasing because, with radiation, there is so much fibrosis that facial contour is(More)
The fabrication of ultrathin single-crystal Au nanowires with high aspect ratio and that are stable in air is challenging. Recently, a simple wet-chemical approach using oleylamine has been reported for the synthesis of Au nanowires with micrometer length and 2 nm in diameter. Despite efforts to understand the mechanism of the reaction, an ultimate question(More)
