One-dimensional composite nanofibres with narrow dispersity, high aspect ratio and high processibility have been fabricated by head-to-tail self-assembly of rod-like tobacco mosaic virus assisted by aniline polymerization, which can promote many potential applications including electronics, optics, sensing and biomedical engineering.
Close-packed nanoparticle monolayers have recently been shown to form mechanically robust, free-standing membranes. We report the first measurements of molecular transport through such ultrathin sheets, self-assembled from dodecanethiol-ligated gold nanocrystals. For aqueous solutions we find filtration coefficients 2 orders of magnitude larger than those(More)
This paper considers cooperative kinematic control of multiple manipulators using distributed recurrent neural networks and provides a tractable way to extend existing results on individual manipulator control using recurrent neural networks to the scenario with the coordination of multiple manipulators. The problem is formulated as a constrained game,(More)
Amphiphilic, PEGylated gold nanoparticles, of approximately 2 nm average core diameter, were synthesized by reduction of hydrogen tetrachloroaurate in the presence of the ligand (1-mercaptoundec-11-yl)tetra(ethylene glycol). These PEGylated gold nanoparticles were found to assemble cleanly at the oil-water interface. This self-assembly process gave a(More)
The oil/water interfacial assembly of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) has been studied in situ by tensiometry and small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS and SANS). TMV showed different orientations at the perfluorodecalin/water interface, depending on the initial TMV concentration in the aqueous phase. At low TMV concentration, the rods oriented parallel(More)
An extensive study of the factors that affect the interfacial assembly of bionanoparticles at the oil/water (O/W) interface is reported. Bionanoparticles, such as viruses, have distinctive structural properties due to the unique arrangement of their protein structures. The assembly process of such bionanoparticles at interfaces is governed by factors(More)
This study examined the relationships between life event stress, early maladaptive schemas, impulsivity and binge eating among adolescents and investigated the effects of early maladaptive schemas and impulsivity on the relationship between life event stress and binge eating. Specifically, we examined a moderated mediation model in which early maladaptive(More)
Self-assembly of nanoparticles at fluid interfaces has emerged as a simple yet efficient way to create two-dimensional membranes with tunable properties. In these membranes, inorganic nanoparticles are coated with a shell of organic ligands that interlock as spacers and provide tensile strength. Although curvature due to gradients in lipid-bilayer(More)
