The immobilization of proteins on gold-coated magnetic nanoparticles and the subsequent recognition of the targeted proteins provide an effective means for the separation of proteins via application of a magnetic filed. A key challenge is the ability to fabricate such nanoparticles with the desired core-shell nanostructure. In this article, we report(More)
BACKGROUND The need for axillary nodal staging in favorable histologic subtypes of breast cancer is controversial. METHODS Patients with clinical stage T1-2, N0 breast cancer were enrolled in a prospective, multi-institutional study. All patients underwent sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy followed by completion level I/II axillary dissection. RESULTS(More)
The use of metal nanoparticles as building blocks toward thin film assembly creates intriguing opportunities for exploring multifunctional properties. Such an exploration requires the ability to engineer the size, shape, composition, and especially interparticle properties in nanoparticle assemblies for harnessing the collective properties of the nanoscale(More)
The ability to tune interparticle spatial properties of nanoparticle assemblies is essential for the design of sensing materials toward desired sensitivity and selectivity. This paper reports findings of an investigation of molecularly mediated thin film assemblies of metal nanoparticles with controllable interparticle spatial properties as a sensing array.(More)
This paper describes the results of a study of a few design parameters influencing the performance of sensor arrays constructed from nanostructured thin films and interdigitated microelectrodes (IMEs). The nanostructured thin films on the IME devices were prepared from nonanedithiol (NDT) and mercaptoundecanoic acid (MUA) linked assemblies of 2-nm sized(More)
Flexible hybrid electronics (FHE) integrate both traditional printed circuits, solder assembled standard and thinned silicon chips along with printable electronic materials and sensors. The combination results in high performance from thin, light weight, flexible devices that potentially could be manufactured at low cost. In this paper, flexible hybrid(More)
As nanoparticles with different capping structures in solution phases have found widespread applications of wide interest, understanding how the capping structure change influences their presence in phases or solutions is important for gaining full control over both the intended nanoactivity and the unintended nanotoxicity. This report describes a simple(More)
In the organic-aqueous phase transfer process of gold nanoparticles, there are two types of distinctive interfaces involving hydrophilic and hydrophobic ligands, the understanding of which is important for the design of functional nanomaterials for analytical/bioanalytical applications and the control over the nanoparticles' nanoactivity and nanotoxicity in(More)
This report describes findings of an investigation of the role of capping molecules in the size growth in the aggregative growth of pre-formed small-sized gold nanoparticles capped with alkanethiolate monolayers toward monodispersed larger sizes. The size controllability depends on the thiolate chain length and concentration in the thermal solution. The(More)
