The transport of oligomeric molecules in silica spheres with cylindrical mesopores has been quantified and related to the structural features of the spherical particles and the interactions at the solid-liquid interface. An emulsion-solvent evaporation method was used to produce silica spheres having cylindrical mesopores with an average pore diameter of(More)
Very strong physical gels have been formed by moderate temperature increases of concentrated aqueous dispersions of acrylamide-based copolymers. The results of rheometry, confocal laser scanning microscopy, and differential scanning calorimetric studies of acrylamide-based copolymers with acrylic acid (poly[AM-AA]) and the sodium salt of(More)
Lipase from Thermomyces lanuginosus has been immobilized within particulate mesoporous silica carriers, with either hydrophilic or hydrophobic supporting surfaces, produced by the newly developed emulsion and solvent evaporation (ESE) method. The Michaelis-Menten model was used to calculate the parameters related to the enzymatic activity of lipase i.e. the(More)
We report a robust and versatile membrane protein based system for selective uptake and release of ions from nanoporous particles sealed with ion-tight lipid bilayers of various compositions that is driven by the addition of ATP or a chemical potential gradient. We have successfully incorporated both a passive ion channel-type peptide (gramicidin A) and a(More)
We describe here a method for study of bulk release and local molecular transport within mesoporous silica spheres. We have analyzed the loading and release of charged fluorescent dyes from monodisperse mesoporous silica (MMS) spheres with an average pore size of 2.7 nm. Two different fluorescent dyes, one cationic and one anionic, have been loaded into the(More)
Titania nanoparticles have been incorporated into spherical mesoporous silica powders by an aerosol-assisted synthesis process from both aqueous and ethanol-based precursor dispersions. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) showed that the titania nanoparticles exist as single particles or small aggregates within the mesoporous carrier particles and(More)
The COmponent-REsolved (CORE) strategy has been employed, for the first time to solid state NMR spectroscopy. CORE was used to extract two time-dependent spectral components in 24 (29)Si{(1)H} NMR spectra, recorded on a meso-structured silica material under conditions of cross polarization evolution. No prior assumptions were made about the component(More)
