Polymer-coated nanoparticles interacting with proteins and cells: focusing on the sign of the net charge.
To study charge-dependent interactions of nanoparticles (NPs) with biological media and NP uptake by cells, colloidal gold nanoparticles were modified with amphiphilic polymers to obtain NPs withExpand

Polycarbonate and polystyrene nanoplastic particles act as stressors to the innate immune system of fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas).
Water pollution with large-scale and small-scale plastic litter is an area of growing concern. Macro-plastic litter is a well-known threat to aquatic wildlife; however, the effects of micro-sized andExpand

Direct observation of drops on slippery lubricant-infused surfaces.
For a liquid droplet to slide down a solid planar surface, the surface usually has to be tilted above a critical angle of approximately 10°. By contrast, droplets of nearly any liquid "slip" onExpand

Light- and STM-tip-induced formation of one-dimensional and two-dimensional organic nanostructures
The light-induced and tip-induced polymerization of two diacetylene derivatives has been investigated at the air/solid interface by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM). One molecule is an isophthalicExpand

A general synthetic approach for obtaining cationic and anionic inorganic nanoparticles via encapsulation in amphiphilic copolymers.
A series of amphiphilic copolymers with variable charge densities on their backbone is synthesized. Positively charged N,N,N-trimethylammonium-2-ethyl methacrylate iodide or negatively chargedExpand
