ZnO nanorods (NRs) with high surface area to volume ratio and biocompatibility is used as an efficient photosensitizer carrier system and at the same time providing intrinsic white light needed to achieve cancer cell necrosis. In this letter, ZnO nanorods used for the treatment of breast cancer cell (T47D) are presented. To adjust the sample for(More)
Affinity precipitation, a novel technique closely related to immunoprecipitation and affinity chromatography, has been evaluated in systems comprised of dehydrogenases and a bifunctional NAD derivative, Bis-NAD. Lactate dehydrogenase and glutamate dehydrogenase were easily precipitated whereas yeast alcohol dehydrogenase required the presence of salt to(More)
A pilot injection test with guar gum stabilized microscale zerovalent iron (mZVI) particles was performed at test site V (Belgium) where different chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons (CAHs) were present as pollutants in the subsurface. One hundred kilograms of 56μm-diameter mZVI (~70gL(-1)) was suspended in 1.5m(3) of guar gum (~7gL(-1)) solution and(More)
Gal beta 1-3GlcNAc (1) and Gal beta 1-3GlcNAc beta-SEt (2) were synthesized on a 100 mg scale by the transgalactosylation reaction of bovine testes beta-galactosidase with lactose as donor and N-acetylglucosamine and GlcNAc beta-SEt as acceptors. In both cases the product mixtures contained unwanted isomers and were treated with beta-galactosidase from(More)
A new type of fibre-based anion-exchange material for plasmid purification was developed. The basic material consisted of non-porous silica fibres with a mean diameter of 1.5 microm and a surface area of 2.4m(2)g(-1). The fibre surface was provided with several types of ligands, either by adsorption of polymers (chitosan or poly(ethyleneimine)) or by(More)
A new technique to speed up the phase separation of aqueous two-phase systems is described. The technique is based on the addition of magnetically susceptible additives (ferrofluids or iron oxide particles). In a magnetic field such additives will induce a faster phase separation. In one approach, dextran-stabilized ferrofluid was added to an aqueous(More)
In order to understand exciton migration and fluorescence intensity fluctuation mechanisms in conjugated polymer single molecules, we studied fluorescence decay dynamics at "on" and "off" fluorescence intensity levels with 20 ps time resolution using MEH-PPV [poly(2-methoxy-5-(2'-ethylhexyloxy)-1,4-phenylenevinylene] dispersed in PMMA. Two types of(More)
