The specific role of endogenous glutathione in response to neuronal degeneration induced by trimethyltin (TMT) in the hippocampus was examined in rats. A single injection of TMT (8 mg/kg, i.p.) produced a rapid increase in the formation of hydroxyl radical and in the levels of malondialdehyde (MDA) and protein carbonyl. TMT-induced seizure activity(More)
We present the synthesis of nonspherical magnetic microparticles with multiple functionalities, shapes, and chemistries. Particle synthesis was performed in two steps: polymeric microparticles functionalized homogenously with carboxyl groups were generated using stop-flow lithography, and then in situ coprecipitation was used to grow magnetic nanoparticles(More)
The emulsion droplet solvent evaporation method has been used to prepare nanoclusters of monodisperse magnetite nanoparticles of varying morphologies depending on the temperature and rate of solvent evaporation and on the composition (solvent, presence of polymer, nanoparticle concentration, etc.) of the emulsion droplets. In the absence of a polymer, and(More)
We report new methods for the synthesis and efficient manipulation of magnetic hydrogel microparticles. Through the development of a high-pH rinsing scheme, we achieve a simple and flexible synthesis strategy for the generation of geometrically and chemically complex magnetic microgels, eliminating the need for perfusion streams and other features that(More)
We report on modeling and experimental studies of the synthesis of opaque microparticles made via stop-flow lithography. Opaque magnetic beads and UV-absorbing dyes incorporated into hydrogel microparticles during synthesis changed the height and the degree of cross-linking of the polymer matrices formed. The effect of the concentration of these opaque(More)
Recent advances in quantum dot surface passivation have led to a rapid development of high-efficiency solar cells. Another critical element for achieving efficient power conversion is the charge neutrality of quantum dots, as charge imbalances induce electronic states inside the energy gap. Here we investigate how the simultaneous introduction of metal(More)
The sonochemical synthesis of nanosized surface-dissymmetrical (Janus) particles is described. The Janus particles were composed of silica and polystyrene, with the polystyrene portion loaded with nanosized magnetite particles. It is shown that the Janus particles can be used to form kinetically stable oil-in-water emulsions that can be spontaneously broken(More)
