Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are considered to be a potentially useful tool for controlling various pathogens. However, there are concerns about the release of AgNPs into environmental media, as they may generate adverse human health and ecological effects. In this study, we developed and evaluated a novel micrometer-sized magnetic hybrid colloid (MHC)(More)
The major challenges in practically utilising the immense potential benefits of nanomaterials are controlling aggregation, recycling the nanomaterials, and fabricating well-defined nanoparticulate materials using innovative methods. We present a novel innovative synthetic strategy for core-shell bimetallic nanoparticles that are well-defined, ligand-free,(More)
Although the current array of nanomachines mostly comprises simple devices (at least from a mechanical viewpoint), the underlying physical and chemical interactions that play key roles in the 'assembly' of these machines have required decades of research to ascertain a fundamental understanding of how such processes can be manipulated at the nanoscale.

Gold nanoparticles (*40 nm in diameter) were encapsulated by a hydrogel overlayer generated by the free radical polymerization of N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylic acid (NIPAM-co-AA), which was promoted by a specifically designed radical initiator covalently anchored to the surface of the gold core. The size and morphology of the shell/core nanoparticles(More)
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) have long been considered a powerful disinfectant for controlling pathogenic microorganisms. However, AgNPs might have adverse effects on both human health and our ecosystems due to their potential cytotoxicity and the difficulty in recovering them after their release into the environment. In this study, we characterized the(More)
Heterogeneous core/shell nanoparticles are currently of great interest for use as an effective way of hydrogen production from storage materials such as methanol, ethanol, and formic acid. Of various fabrication methods, overgrowth of the secondary metal component on a seed material is one of the most commonly used synthetic methods. However, controlling(More)
Recently, nanogels have been extensively studied as a means to deliver bioactive molecules such as drugs, proteins, and vaccines due to their versatile and unique properties such as high water absorption, easy production, surface modification, high stability and biocompatibility. Various materials including natural polymers, synthetic polymers, peptides,(More)
A series of molecular adsorbates having various chain lengths of terminal poly(ethylene glycol methyl ether) (PEG) moieties, thiol head groups, and intervening free radical initiator moieties was used to functionalize the surface of gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). The bulky PEG groups stabilized the functionalized AuNPs by providing steric hindrance against(More)
Tumor volume and standard uptake value (SUV) calculated from positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) images differ from their real values. Besides errors introduced by scintillation materials, photomultiplier tubes, and image reconstruction algorithms, measurements are affected by patients' prostheses, body movements, and body shape.
