One-Step Assembly of Coordination Complexes for Versatile Film and Particle Engineering
Aqueous deposition is performed on a range of planar as well as inorganic, organic, and biological particle templates, demonstrating an extremely rapid technique for producing structurally diverse, thin films and capsules that can disassemble. Expand
Nanoengineering of particle surfaces.
The creation of core–shell particles is attracting a great deal of interest because of the diverse applicability of these colloidal particles; e.g., as building blocks for photonic crystals, inExpand
Technology-driven layer-by-layer assembly of nanofilms
The current technologies for multilayer thin-film deposition using layer-by-layer assembly are reviewed, and the different properties and applications arising from the technologies are discussed. Expand
2. Assembly of Alternating Polyelectrolyte and Protein Multilayer Films for Immunosensing
Alternating polyelectrolyte films constructed by the sequential adsorption of poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) and poly(styrenesulfonate) (PSS) have been used as substrates for the immobilizationExpand
Spontaneous phase transfer of nanoparticulate metals from organic to aqueous media.
The picture shows the transfer of gold nanoparticles from toluene to water by the addition of DMAP, which enables the generation of high concentrations of nanoparticles with better monodispersity than those commonly prepared in water. Expand
Plasmon emission in photoexcited gold nanoparticles
Light emission at the particle plasmon frequency is observed in optically excited spherical gold nanoparticles. We find a photoluminescence efficiency of ${10}^{\ensuremath{-}6}$, which isExpand
Novel Hollow Polymer Shells by Colloid-Templated Assembly of Polyelectrolytes.
Possible areas of application for polyelectrolyte shells range from the pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic, and paint industries to catalysis and microcrystallization. Expand
Bridging Bio-Nano Science and Cancer Nanomedicine.
How cancer is commonly treated in the clinic and how this relates tonanomedicine is revisited; the ongoing debate on the relevance of the EPR effect and tumor targeting is examined; ways to improve the next-generation of nanomedicines are highlighted; and the emerging concept of working with (and not against) biology is discussed.

Stepwise Polyelectrolyte Assembly on Particle Surfaces: a Novel Approach to Colloid Design
Polyelectrolyte multilayers were deposited onto polystyrene and melamine formaldehyde latex particles by means of consecutive adsorption. Two different methods of multilayer growth were employed.Expand
Differential roles of the protein corona in the cellular uptake of nanoporous polymer particles by monocyte and macrophage cell lines.
The disparate effects of a givenprotein corona on particle-cell interactions are demonstrated, highlighting the correlation between protein corona conformation in situ and relevant biological characteristics for biological functionalities. Expand
