We designed and synthesized two analogous pentacationic [60]fullerenyl monoadducts, C₆₀(>ME₁N₆⁺C₃) (1) and C₆₀(>ME₃N₆⁺C₃) (2), with variation of the methoxyethyleneglycol length. Each of these derivatives bears a well-defined number of cationic charges aimed to enhance and control their ability to target pathogenic Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial(More)
UNLABELLED Fullerenes are promising candidates for photodynamic therapy (PDT). Thus, C₇₀ and novel C₈₄O₂ fullerenes were functionalized with and without an additional deca-tertiary ethyleneamino-chain as an electron source, giving rise to two distinct pairs of photosensitizers, the monoadducts LC-17, LC-19 and the bisadducts LC18 and LC-20 to perform PDT in(More)
Novel water-soluble decacationically armed C(60) and C(70) decaiodide monoadducts, C(60)- and C(70)[>M(C(3)N(6)(+)C(3))(2)], were synthesized, characterized, and applied as photosensitizers and potential nano-PDT agents against pathogenic bacteria and cancer cells. A high number of cationic charges per fullerene cage and H-bonding moieties were designed for(More)
Broadband nonlinear optical (NLO) organic nanostructures exhibiting both ultrafast photoresponse and a large cross-section of two-photon absorption throughout a wide NIR spectrum may make them suitable for use as nonlinear biophotonic materials. We report here the synthesis and characterization of two C₆₀-(antenna)(x) analogous compounds as branched triad(More)
Two C60-(antenna)x analogous compounds having branched hybrid triad C60(>DPAF-C18)(>CPAF-C2M) and tetrad C60(>DPAF-C18)(>CPAF-C2M)2 nanostructures were synthesized and characterized. The structural design was intended to facilitate the ultrafast fs intramolecular energy-transfer from photoexcited C60[>(1)(DPAF)*-C18](>CPAF-C2M)1or2 or(More)
In this work we build on prior studies of the novel water-soluble cationic conjugated polymer known as "P2" (poly{2,5-bis[3-( N, N, N-triethylammonium bromide)-1-oxapropyl]-1,4-phenylenevinylene}) with a focus on its incorporation into thin films for such applications as photovoltaics or electroluminescent devices. Multilayer assemblies were constructed(More)
Engineering nanomaterials with enhanced antibacterial activities remains a critical and practical challenge. Hollow oblate mesoporous silica nanoparticles (HOMSNs) are synthesized by a simple protocol of ammonia hydrothermal treatment of oblate mesoporous silica nanoparticles prepared using dibenzyl ether as a cosolvent. When conjugated with trehalose as(More)
We designed and synthesized several nanomaterials 3 of three-layered core-shell (γ-FeOx@AuNP)@[C60(>DPAF-C9) 1 or 2]n nanoparticles (NPs). These NPs having e(-)-polarizable fullerosome structures located at the outer layer were fabricated from highly magnetic core-shell γ-FeOx@AuNPs. Fullerosomic polarization of 3 was found to be capable of causing a large(More)
We demonstrated ultrafast femtosecond nonlinear optical (NLO) absorption characteristics of bilayered fullerosome vesicle nanostructures derived from molecular self-assembly of amphiphilic oligo(ethylene glycolated) C(60)-(light-harvesting diphenylaminofluorene antenna). Fullerene conjugates were designed to enhance photoresponse in a femtosecond time scale(More)
We report the synthesis of a series of water-soluble, fluorescent, conjugated polymers via the Gilch reaction with an overall yield greater than 40%. The yield for the Gilch reaction decreases with the increase in the length of the side chain (ethylene glycol repeat units), presumably due to the steric effects inhibiting the linking of monomeric units.
