This paper reports the creation of Au nanoparticles (AuNP) that are soluble in aqueous solution over a broad range of pH and ionic strength values and that are capable of selective uptake by folate receptor positive (FR+) cancer cells. A novel poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) construct with thioctic acid and folic acid coupled on opposite ends of the polymer(More)
We report the controlled deposition of close-packed monolayer arrays of ϳ5-nm-diam Au clusters within patterned regions on GaAs device layers, thus demonstrating guided self-assembly on a substrate which can provide interesting semiconductor device characteristics. Uniform nanometer scale ordering of the clusters is achieved by a chemical self-assembly(More)
A new strategy for encapsulating neutral nanoclusters is presented which employs surfactants with large concave headgroups and multiple contact sites. Au nanoclusters ranging from 3 to 20 nm in diameter were generated in the vapor phase and dispersed into dilute solutions of resorcinarenes 1-3, where they were stabilized for up to several months. The(More)
Percutaneous vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that has shown excellent results in the treatment of back pain due to acute-subacute vertebral fracture. The bone scintigraphy shows the increase of metabolic exchange in the fracture. The new hybrid SPECT-CT equipment combines bone SPECT images with Computed Tomography (CT), making it possible(More)
The effects of titanium connectivity, deposition solution neutralizing agent, and catalyst pretreatment were examined for a series of Au-on-titanium-containing supports for the direct gas-phase epoxidation of propylene using hydrogen and oxygen. The degree of titanium isolation was examined using pure titania, monolayer-titania on silica,(More)
By using as sources supersonic jets of hydrogen or helium containing small concentrations of heavier molecules we have been able to obtain molecular beams with kinetic energies of the heavy molecules well into the range above I electron volt. A variety of molecules have been successfully accelerated. Intensities of 10(16) to 10(17) heavy molecules per(More)
