Nearly monodispersed superparamagnetic maghemite nanoparticles (15-20nm) were prepared by a one-step thermal decomposition of iron(II) acetate in air at 400 degrees C. The presented synthetic route is simple, cost effective and allows to prepare the high-quality superparamagnetic particles in a large scale. The as-prepared particles were exploited for the(More)
Cyanobacteria pose a serious threat to water resources around the world. This is compounded by the fact that they are extremely resilient, having evolved numerous protective mechanisms to ensure their dominant position in their ecosystem. We show that treatment with nanoparticles of zerovalent iron (nZVI) is an effective and environmentally benign method(More)
BACKGROUND In recent years, there has been renewed interest in small bowel imaging using a variety of radiologic or endoscopic techniques. This article gives an overview and comparison of old and new techniques used in small bowel imaging. New imaging methods as computed tomography (CT), CT enteroclysis (CTEc), CT enterography (CTEg), ultrasound (US),(More)
The thermally induced solid state synthesis of soluble organophilic maghemite (γ-Fe(2)O(3)) nanocrystallites is described. The solvent-free one-step synthesis involves the reaction in the melt state of Fe(NO)(3)·9H(2)O and RCOOH (R = C(11)H(23), C(15)H(31)) at 240 °C. The method yields well-crystallized nanoparticles of γ-Fe(2)O(3) functionalized with the(More)
The nano-modification of selected substrates by means of atmospheric cold plasma treatment was exploited for the two-dimensional (2D) self-assembling of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs). Such a useful combination of the cold plasma treatment of substrate surface and an immediate easy deposition of Ag NPs creating the 2D self-assemblies on the substrates is(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to test an oral contrast solution with maghemite for the magnetic resonance imaging of small bowel diseases. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study sample included 3 cohorts: 17 healthy volunteers (group A), 22 patients with small bowel disease (group C). Both groups underwent MR enterography and 24 patients with small bowel disease(More)
