Microorganisms, their cell filtrates, and live biomass have been utilized for synthesizing various gold nanoparticles. The shape, size, stability as well as the purity of the bio synthesized nanoparticles become very essential for application purpose. In the present study, gold nanoparticles have been synthesized from the supernatant, live cell filtrate,(More)
Liver and breast cancer are the most traumatic diseases because they affect the major organs of the body. Nanomedicine recently emerged as a better option for the treatment of these deadly diseases. As a result, many nanoparticles have been used to treat cancer cell lines. Of the various nanoparticles, zinc oxide exhibits biocompatibility. Therefore, the(More)
ZnO nanostructures of diverse shape were grown via a solution process with different precursors and conditions. Morphological investigation of the nanostructures was carried out using field emission scanning electron microscopy and transmission microscopy observations and revealed that the nanostructures exhibit a wurtzite phase with an ideal lattice fringe(More)
A feasibility study of glucose oxidase (GOx) immobilized tin oxide thin films, consisting of nano-baskets, for glucose sensing is presented. The nano-baskets of SnO(2) were grown on in-house fabricated anodized aluminum oxide pores of approximately 80-nm diameter using plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) at an RF power of 60W. Hydrated stannic(More)
This paper presents the fabrication and characterization of zinc oxide micro-flowers and their antibacterial activity. The micro-flowers of zinc oxide composed of hexagonal nanorods have been prepared via solution process using precursor zinc acetate di-hydrate and sodium hydroxide in 3 h of refluxing time at ~90°C. The antibacterial activities of grown(More)
The well-crystallized ZnO nanoparticles were synthesized by a simple and facile soft chemical approach, and their induction of oxidative stress in Cloudman S91 melanoma cancer cells was studied. The ZnO nanoparticles were characterized for their morphology, structure, and optical properties. The ZnO nanoparticles with the average size of approximately 10 nm(More)
The cytotoxic effect towards myoblast cancer cells (C3C12) of well-crystalline colloidal Pt quantum dots (QDs) was examined and presented in this paper. The Pt QDs were synthesized by facile colloidal process and characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and high-resolution TEM (HR-TEM), which confirmed that the QDs are prepared in(More)
Here we present a systematic study on the morphological deviation of ZnO nanostructure (from sheets to micro-flowers) by varying pH of the solution via precipitation method. In this regard, zinc nitrate hexa-hydrate, NaOH and hydroxylamine hydrochloride (NH2OH HCl) were used. The solution of all three compounds was refluxed at a very low temperature (60 C)(More)
Nanoscale gold particles (Au-NPs) with a diameter below 20nm are notably important candidates for various important applications because of their extraordinary quantum size effects. Their high surface area-to-volume ratio facilitates their very high reactivities; therefore, they can be utilised in different ways in biomedical applications. For example,(More)
Dipsaci Radix is the dried root of Dipsacus asper Wall. It has been used in Korean herbal medicine to treat bone fractures. In this study, we examined the effect of the dichloromethane fraction of Dipsaci Radix (DR(DM)) on the osteoblastic differentiation of human alveolar bone marrow-derived MSCs (ABM-MSCs). The ABM-MSCs were isolated from healthy subjects(More)
