Due to the existing interest in new hybrid particles in the colloidal range based on both magnetic and polymeric materials for applications in biotechnological fields, this work is focused on the preparation of magnetic polymer nanoparticles (MPNPs) by a single-step miniemulsion process developed to achieve better control of the morphology of the magnetic(More)
Cationic latex particles with surface amino groups were prepared by a multistep batch emulsion polymerization. In the first one, two or three steps, monodisperse cationic latex particles to be used as the seed were synthesized. In the third and fourth steps, the amino-functionalizedmonomer aminoethylmethacrylate hydrochloride was used to synthesize the(More)
Self-stabilized magnetic polymeric composite nanoparticles (SS-MPCPs) were prepared by emulsifier-free miniemulsion polymerization using styrene (St) as a monomer, sodium p-styrenesulfonate (NaSS) as an ionic comonomer, hexadecane (HD) as a hydrophobe, and 2,2'-azodiisobutyronitrile (AIBN) as an initiator in the presence of hydrophobic magnetite particles.(More)
Cationic latex particles with surface amino groups were prepared by a multistep batch emulsion polymerization. In the first one or two steps, monodisperse cationic latex particles to be used as the seed were synthesized, and in the third step, two different amino-functionalized monomers [aminoethylmethacrylate hydrochloride (AEMH) and vinylbenzylamine(More)
We present the results of an XMM-Newton observation of the young (∼ 2 − 4 Myr) cluster around the hot star σ Orionis. In a previous paper we presented the analysis of the RGS spectrum of the central hot star; here we discuss the results of the analysis of the full EPIC field. We have detected 175 X-ray sources, 88 of which have been identified with cluster(More)
Monodisperse core-shell stable latexes with reactive methylchloride surface functionalities were prepared at two different reaction temperatures. The reaction temperature played an important role in the amount of reactive functional groups. The covalent coupling had an efficiency of more than 50%. Antibodies covalently bound to functionalized polystyrene(More)
All the Extreme Ultraviolet Explorer (EUVE) observations of AD Leo, totalling 1.1 Ms of exposure time, have been employed to analyze the corona of this single M dwarf. The light curves show a well defined quiescent stage, and a distribution of amplitude of variability following a power law with a ∼ −2.4 index. The flaring behavior exhibits much similarity(More)
Aims. The observation of eclipses during X-rays flares taking place in active cool stars binaries allows us to calculate the position and size of the flares. This information cannot be derived by analyzing the decay of the flares, a frequently used approach in the literature that requires the assumption of a physical model. We make use of the eclipsing(More)
Latex particles with different functionalized surface groups (amino, acetal and chloromethyl) for the covalent linking of protein molecules were synthesized and characterized. Immunopurified anti-ferritin antibodies were then covalently coupled with a mean efficiency rate (protein covalently bound to latex particles with respect to the total amount of(More)
