A one-step homogeneous colorimetric immunoassay format coupled with zeta potential measurements for determination of specific diabetic biomarker glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) using functionalised gold nanoparticles as bioprobes is reported. The assay exhibited an excellent sensitivity based on absorbance and zeta potential measurements showing the dynamic(More)
Synthesis of semiconductor nanoparticles with new photophysical properties is an area of special interest. Here, we report synthesis of ZnS nanoparticles in aqueous micellar solution of Cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB). The size of ZnS nanodispersions in aqueous micellar solution has been calculated using UV-vis spec-troscopy, XRD, SAXS, and TEM(More)
Introduction: In manned lunar missions, astro-nauts' abilities to remain spatially oriented on the lunar surface can have a serious impact on mission success and safety [1]. Astronauts may become disoriented due to lack of distinctive landmarks on the lunar surface, and other factors. They may also experience difficulties in judging distance because the(More)
Colloidal nanodispersions of ZnS have been prepared using aqueous micellar solution of two cationic surfactants of trimethylammonium/pyridinium series with different head groups i.e., cetyltrimethylammonium chloride (CTAC) and cetyltrimethylpyridinium chloride (CPyC). The role of these surfactants in controlling size, agglomeration behavior and(More)
A novel method for the preparation of hitherto unknown symmetrical bis(2-halo-3-pyridyl) dichalcogenides (E = S, Se and Te) by the oxidation of intermediate 2-halo-3-pyridyl chalcogenolate, prepared by lithiation of 2-halo pyridines using lithium diisopropylamine is being reported. All the newly synthesized compounds have been characterized through(More)
