The aim of this study was to design and characterize solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) modified with stearic acid-octaarginine (SA-R₈) as carriers for oral administration of insulin (SA-R₈-Ins-SLNs). The SLNs were prepared by spontaneous emulsion solvent diffusion methods. The mean particle size, zeta potential, drug loading, and encapsulation efficiency of… (More)
In the fight against cancer, controlled drug delivery systems have emerged to enhance the therapeutic efficacy and safety of anti-cancer drugs. Among these systems, mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) with a functional surface possess obvious advantages and were thus rapidly developed for cancer treatment. Many stimuli-responsive materials, such as… (More)
A novel arginine-rich chitosan (CS) derivates mimicked cell penetration peptides; N-Arginine chitosan (N-Arg-CS) was prepared by two reaction methods involving activated L-arginine and the amine group on the chitosan. FTIR spectra showed that arginine was chemically coupled with CS. Elemental analysis estimated that the degrees of substitution (DS) of… (More)
Retraction of 'Origin of colossal permittivity in (In1/2Nb1/2)TiO2via broadband dielectric spectroscopy' by Xiao-gang Zhao et al., Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2015, 17, 23132-23139.
Lifting wavelet is a useful method to analyze the abrupt signal because lifting wavelet can simultaneously show the local characteristic of time domain signal and frequency domain signal. The dynamic power quality disturbance in modern power supply can usually engender the fault signal such as voltage sag, voltage swell and voltage interruption. Lifting… (More)
