In this article, we report the formation of micelles from a tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) end-functionalized poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (poly(NIPAM)) derivative (1). We have determined the critical aggregation concentration (CAC) and average diameter of the micelles using fluorescence spectroscopy and dynamic light scattering experiments, respectively. We have(More)
During the past decade, drug-eluting stents (DES) have been widely used for the treatment of occlusive coronary artery diseases. They are supposed to reduce the incidence of early in-stent restenosis by the elution of highly hydrophobic antiproliferative drugs. Nevertheless, the absence of long-term activity of these devices is responsible for late acute(More)
In this article, the detection of DNA hybridization taking advantage of the plasmonic properties of gold nanostructures is described. The approach is based on the amplification of the wavelength shift of a multilayered localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) sensor interface upon hybridization with gold nanorods and nanostars-labeled DNA. The(More)
We show in this article that doxorubicin-modified gold nanoparticles (Au NP-DOX) can be used for the post-amplification of the wavelength shift of localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) signals after DNA hybridization events. We take advantage of the intercalation properties of DOX with guanine-rich oligonucleotides and the plasmon coupling between(More)
The synthesis of multifunctional magnetic nanoparticles (MF-MPs) is one of the most active research areas in advanced materials as their multifunctional surfaces allow conjugation of biological and chemical molecules, thus making it possible to achieve target-specific diagnostic in parallel to therapeutics. We report here a simple strategy to integrate in a(More)
The article reports on the strong linking of dopamine derivatives as a simple and a versatile strategy for the surface functionalization of hydroxyl-terminated nanodiamond (ND-OH) particles. Azide- (ND-N(3)) or poly-N-isopropylacrylamide-terminated (ND-PNIPAM) particles were obtained from ND-OH particles through the reaction with the corresponding dopamine(More)
In order to study the enzymatic mechanisms involved in the successive steps of BaP degradation by a Deuteromycete fungus Fusarium solani, we developed an indirect approach by using inhibitors of enzymes. We used either specific inhibitors of peroxidases (i.e. salicylhydroxamic acid) and of cytochrome P-450 (i.e. piperonyl butoxyde) or inhibitors of both(More)
Most polymeric thermoresponsive hydrogels contract upon heating beyond the lower critical solution temperature (LCST) of the polymers used. Herein, we report a supramolecular hydrogel system that shows the opposite temperature dependence. When the non-thermosesponsive hydrogel NaphtGel, containing dialkoxynaphthalene guest molecules, becomes complexed with(More)
A straightforward functionalization of a titanium surface using "click" chemistry is reported. A "clickable" titanium surface platform was prepared by the immobilization of an azide-functionalized electroactive catechol anchor and was subsequently derivatized with an electroactive or fluorinated probe via the CuAAC (copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne(More)
A new class of polymeric thermometers with a memory function is reported that is based on the supramolecular host-guest interactions of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) with side-chain naphthalene guest moieties and the tetracationic macrocycle cyclobis(paraquat-p-phenylene) (CBPQT(4+)) as the host. This supramolecular thermometer exhibits a memory(More)
