Stimulation of 4-1BB (CD137) was shown to produce strong anticancer effects in vivo. In contrast, 4-1BB-deficient (4-1BB(-/-)) B6 mice are remarkably resistant to tumor growth. We set out to determine the mechanisms involved in these seemingly contradictory observations. We found that the therapeutic effects of 4-1BB triggering were mainly dependent on(More)
Cu deposition on the surface of spherical SiO2 nanoparticles was studied to achieve the hybrid structure of Cu-SiO2 nanocomposite. SiO2 nanoparticles served as seeds for continuous Cu metal deposition. The chemical structure and morphology were studied with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), scanning electron microscope energy dispersive X-ray(More)
Although several methods (e.g., self-assembly, spin coating, etc.) have been explored for making a monolayer film of nanoparticles, the monolayer on a substrate is typically smaller than 1 micromx1 microm in certain regions. The approach is not ideally suitable for generating a highly ordered and close-packed homogeneous vast monolayer of nanoparticles,(More)
The monodispersed FeCo nanoparticles were synthesized with borohydride as a reducing agent by coprecipitation method in aqueous solution. The composition and the size of FeCo nanoparticle was controlled by fitting the molar ratio of starting material, the reaction time and the falling rate. To prepare the crystallized nanoparticles, the amorphous FeCo(More)
The preparation of ultrathin films of CoFe2O4 nanocrystallites is reported. TEM images of them showed 2-dimensional assembly of particles, demonstrating the uniformity of these nanocrystallites. The formation of a Langmuir monolayer of the surface coated CoFe2O4 nanocrystallites with oleate at the air/water interface and its stability were studied with(More)
Nd-Fe-B ultrafine amorphous alloy particles were prepared by reaction of metal ions with borohydride in aqueous solution. Monodispersed Fe nanoparticles were synthesized under an argon atmosphere via thermal decomposition of Fe(2+)-oleate2. Exchange coupled Nd2Fe14B/Fe nanocomposite magnets have been prepared by self-assembly using surfactant. The crystal(More)
Photochromic polymeric films were prepared by doping photochromic dye spironaphthooxazine into polymer resin gels such as polyurethane, vinyl copolymer, and copolymer of vinyl and nitorocellulose at different concentrations. All of the composite films show normal photochromism. The kinetics of the photochromism/decoloration in the films were quantified by(More)
A new preparation for highly crystalline and monodisperse Fe3O4 nanoparticle is reported. This synthesis requires the use of rather complicated procedures including delicate control of surfactants ratios and inert reaction conditions due to the toxic and unstable nature of the precursors none the less because thermal decomposition methods were tried to(More)
In the present study, metal nanocrystals were obtained by the very easy, economical, and nontoxic thermal decomposition method and stabilized by coating oleate without any solvent. These nanocrystals have a highly crystalline structure due to a high decomposition temperature (~563-573 K) at low pressure and very narrow distribution. The prepared Fe3O4(More)
