The coarse-grained continuum primitive model is developed and used to characterize the titration and electrical conductance behavior of aqueous solutions of fullerene hexa malonic acid (FHMA). The spherical FHMA molecule, a highly charged electrolyte with an absolute valence charge as large as 12, is modeled as a dielectric sphere in Newtonian fluid, and(More)
The modeling of transport behavior of charged particles carried out in our laboratory is based on classical continuum electro kinetic theory. It is applied to a variety of systems from small electrolyte ions to macromolecules including peptides, DNA and nanoparticles. Systems range from weakly charged particles to highly charged ones. Transport properties(More)
In this work, we use coarse-grained modeling to study the free solution electrophoretic mobility of small highly charged peptides (lysine, arginine, and short oligos thereof (up to nonapeptides)) in NaCl and Na2SO4 aqueous solutions at neutral pH and room temperature. The experimental data are taken from the literature. A bead modeling methodology that(More)
Two complementary continuum theories of electrokinetic transport are examined with particular emphasis on the equivalent conductance of binary electrolytes. The "small ion" model [R.M. Fuoss, L. Onsager, J. Phys. Chem. 61 (1957) 668] and "large ion" model [R.W. O'Brien, L.R. White, J. Chem. Soc. Faraday Trans. 2 (74) (1978) 1607] are both discussed and the(More)
The electrophoretic mobility of low molecular mass oligoglycines is examined in this study using a "coarse-grained" bead modeling methodology [Pei, H., Allison, S. A., J. Chromatogr. A 2009, 1216, 1908-1916]. The advantage of focusing on these peptides is that their charge state is well known [Plasson, R., Cottet, H., Anal. Chem. 2006, 78, 5394-5402] and(More)
The ionic strength dependence of the electrophoretic mobility of small organic anions with valencies up to -3 is investigated in this study. Provided the anions are not too aspherical, it is argued that shape and charge distribution have little influence on mobility. To a good approximation, the electrophoretic mobility of a small particle should be equal(More)
Determining the charge and the nature (small ion, nanoparticle, or polyelectrolyte) of an unknown solute from its electrophoretic characteristics remains a challenging issue. In this work, we demonstrate that, if the knowledge of the effective electrophoretic mobility (μep ) at a given ionic strength is not sufficient to characterize a given solute, the(More)
OBJECTIVES To study the possible mechanism of the technetium-99m complex of dimercaptosuccinic acid 99mTc(V)-DMSA accumulation in a model of Staphylococcus aureus-induced bacterial arthritis regulated by glucose. MATERIALS AND METHODS After making the S. aureus-induced bacterial arthritis model, 14 rabbits were divided into two groups randomly, with one(More)
The "coarse-grained" bead modeling methodology, BMM, is generalized to treat electrostatics at the level of the nonlinear Poisson-Boltzmann equation. This improvement makes it more applicable to the important class of highly charged macroions and highly charged peptides in particular. In the present study, the new nonlinear Poisson-Boltzmann, NLPB-BMM(More)
