The initial development of carbon nanotube synthesis revolved heavily around the use of 3d valence transition metals such as Fe, Ni, and Co. More recently, noble metals (e.g. Au) and poor metals (e.g. In, Pb) have been shown to also yield carbon nanotubes. In addition, various ceramics and semiconductors can serve as catalytic particles suitable for tube(More)
A new kind of silica nanotube with incorporated γ-Fe(2)O(3) nanoparticles has been successfully prepared through sol-gel processes. Hematite particles supported on carbon nanotubes served as templates for the fabrication of the magnetic silica nanotubes. The obtained nanostructures consisting of magnetic Fe(2)O(3) nanoparticles protected by a silica shell(More)
In this paper, we study synthesis and characteristics of mesoporous silica nanotubes modified by titanium dioxide, as well as their antimicrobial properties and influence on mitochondrial activity of mouse fibroblast L929. Nanocrystalized titania is confined in mesopores of silica nanotubes and its light activated antibacterial response is revealed. The(More)
The properties of mesoporous silica nanoparticles including large surface area, large pore volume, easy surface functionalization and control of structure and pore size has made them promising drug carriers. In this study, the effect of different diameters (50 nm, 70 nm, 90 nm, 110 nm and 140 nm) of silica nanospheres with a solid core and mesoporous shell(More)
The recycling of waste glass is a major problem for municipalities worldwide. The problem concerns especially colored waste glass which, due to its low recycling rate as result of high level of impurity, has mostly been dumped into landfills. In recent years, a new use was found for it: instead of creating waste, it can be recycled as an additive in(More)
We present the new promising nanostructure- sandwich-like mesoporous silica nanoflakes synthesized on graphene oxide sheets core. In the first step biocompatibility of the nanoflakes with PEG and without functionalization in human fibroblast, melanoma and breast cancer cells was assessed. In order to define the cellular uptake in vitro and biodistribution(More)
In recent years, graphene and its derivatives have been extensively investigated because of their unique properties, which can be used in many fields including biomedical applications. Therefore, detailed biological study is required. In the current paper the detailed toxicological studies on single and four layer graphene oxide (GO) nanoflakes is(More)
In the last decade, nanotechnology has been gathering a spectacular amount of attention in the field of building materials. The incorporation of nanosized particles in a small amount to the building materials can influence their properties significantly. And it can contribute to the creation of novel and sustainable structures. In this work, the effect of(More)
In this contribution, we present the synthesis and carbonization mechanism of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) based on cobalt and terephthalic acid, with detailed attention to the carbonization mechanism of cobalt-based organic frameworks. The evolution of the unique morphology of carbonized cobalt organic frameworks induced by temperature allows the(More)
The synthesis of designed nanostructures is an ultimate target of nanomaterial science. Here, silica spheres with nanoholes have been selectively prepared. Coating the necklace-like structured and magnetic nanoparticles along carbon nanotubes, which is an essential step of the simple synthetic procedure of silica hollow spheres, led to the formation of(More)
