Atomic force microscopy (AFM) was used to study the process of infection of bacterial cells by bacteriophages, for which purpose experimental protocols were elaborated. Three types of bacteriophages were characterized with AFM and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Bacteriophage interaction with cells was studied for three bacterial hosts:(More)
Catalytic palladium (Pd) nanoparticles on electrospun copolymers of acrylonitrile and acrylic acid (PAN-AA) mats were produced via reduction of PdCl2 with hydrazine. Fiber mats were electrospun from homogeneous solutions of PAN-AA and PdCl2 in dimethylformamide (DMF). Pd cations were reduced to Pd metals when fiber mats were treated in an aqueous hydrazine(More)
The formation of copper nanoparticles (Cu-NPs) in irradiated aqueous solutions of star-shaped poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) were studied at two pH values. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) demonstrates that the star-shaped macromolecules loaded with Cu(2+) ions can act as individual nanosized containers providing a perfect control over the size and size(More)
The surface topography of glass-forming polymers and oligomer cholesteric systems with a phototunable helix pitch was studied. For this purpose several mixtures based on nematic polyacrylate and cholesteric cyclosiloxanes doped with chiral-photochromic dopant were prepared and investigated. The molecules of chiral-photochromic dopant consist of isosorbide(More)
