In this study, the ability of porous silicon nanoparticles (PSi NPs) to entrap and deliver nitric oxide (NO) as an effective antibacterial agent is tested against different Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. NO was entrapped inside PSi NPs functionalized by means of the thermal hydrocarbonization (THC) process. Subsequent reduction of nitrite in the(More)
We describe the preparation of several types of porous silicon (pSi) microparticles as supports for the solid-phase synthesis of oligonucleotides. The first of these supports facilitates oligonucleotide release from the nanostructured support during the oligonucleotide deprotection step, while the second type of support is able to withstand the cleavage and(More)
