Organic capped luminescent CdSe@ZnS nanocrystals (NCs) have been incorporated in block copolymer micelles, formed by polyethylene glycol modified phospholipids (PEG lipids). The obtained water soluble NC including PEG lipid micelles have been conjugated with bovine serum albumine (BSA). The entire process has been investigated by using optical, structural(More)
Inkjet technology is a compelling method for the flexible and cost-effective printing of functional inks. We show that nanocomposite solutions based on polystyrene and differently sized core/shell-type nanocrystals (NCs) formed by a CdSe core coated with a shell of ZnS (CdSe@ZnS) in a single solvent, chloroform, can be reliably dispensed into luminescent,(More)
The aim of this study is to identify current knowledge gaps in fate, exposure, and toxicity of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs), highlight research gaps, and suggest future research directions. Humans and other living organisms are exposed to ENMs during production or use of products containing them. To assess the hazards of ENMs, it is important to assess(More)
A fundamental and systematic study on the fabrication of a supramolecularly assembled nanostructure of an organic ligand-capped CdS nanocrystal (NC) and multiple heptamine β-cyclodextrin ((NH(2))(7)βCD) molecules in aqueous solution has been here reported. The functionalization process of presynthesized hydrophobic CdS NCs by means of (NH(2))(7)βCD has been(More)
In the past decade, semiconductor nanoparticles have attracted much attention arising from the fundamental scientific interest in understanding the transition of material properties from the bulk to molecular-like clusters and their potential applications. The main issue in the preparation of semiconductor nanocrystals is a careful control of particle size(More)
Asymmetric binary nanocrystals (BNCs) formed by a spherical γ-Fe(2)O(3) magnetic domain epitaxially grown onto a lateral facet of a rodlike anatase TiO(2) nanorod have been functionalized with PEG-terminated phospholipids, resulting in a micellar system that enables the BNC dispersion in aqueous solution. The further processability of the obtained(More)
The fabrication of highly monodisperse silica coated Au NPs by the microemulsion approach and the selection of the nanostructure morphology have been described. Several experimental conditions, synthetic parameters and post-preparative strategies such as reaction time, precursor concentration, size selection techniques and NP surface treatments have been(More)
Original nanocomposites have been obtained by direct incorporation of pre-synthesized oleic acid capped TiO(2) nanorods into properly functionalized poly(methyl methacrylate) copolymers, carrying carboxylic acid groups on the repeating polymer unit. The presence of carboxylic groups on the alkyl chain of the host functionalized copolymer allows an highly(More)
The unique size-and shape-dependent electronic properties of nanocrystals (NCs) make them extremely attractive as novel structural building blocks for constructing a new generation of innovative materials and solid-state devices. Recent advances in material chemistry has allowed the synthesis of colloidal NCs with a wide range of compositions, with a(More)
