In the realm of drug delivery, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have gained tremendous attention as promising nanocarriers, owing to their distinct characteristics, such as high surface area, enhanced cellular uptake and the possibility to be easily conjugated with many therapeutics, including both small molecules and biologics, displaying superior efficacy,(More)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are promising drug delivery systems due to their external functionalizable surface and their hollowed cavity that can encapsulate several bioactive molecules. In this study, the chemotherapeutic drug cisplatin or an inert platinum(IV) complex were entrapped inside functionalized-multi-walled-CNTs and intravenously injected into mice(More)
Carbon nanotubes' (CNTs) hollow interior space has been explored for biomedical applications, such as drug repository against undesirable inactivation. To further devise CNTs as smart material for controlled release of cargo molecules, we propose the concept of "gold-carbon nanobottles". After encapsulating cis-diammineplatinum(II) dichloride (cisplatin,(More)
This article deals with a quantitative analysis of thermodesorption spectra of ammonia: a technique commonly applied to study the surface acidity of solids. The method used for determination of adsorption energy distributions of ammonia is the same as that published recently for the case of hydrogen thermodesorption (Panczyk, T.; et al. Langmuir 2005, 21,(More)
The adsorption energy distribution usually refers to localized monolayers of adsorbate at thermodynamic equilibrium. Many papers have been published that analyze its influence on adsorption isotherms, heats of adsorption, and adsorption kinetics. However, the adsorption energy distribution, in its classical thermodynamic equilibrium sense, may be not as(More)
Object of this paper was to estimate the vascular resistances of the placenta and the lactate/pyruvate-quotient influenced by 8 and 40 mu/min orciprenaline and 320 micrograms/min papaverine. 38 placentas were tested in extraorganic circulation. The content of lactic acid and pyruvic acid was determined in the perfusion solution flowing out of the umbilical(More)
We propose a model of the dissociative adsorption of hydrogen on nickel single-crystal face. In this model, we treat the Ni(100) surface as a strongly correlated energetically heterogeneous surface, because the density functional theory (DFT) studies indicate that hydrogen atoms may adsorb either on hollow sites (energetically more favorable, binding energy(More)
Recovering adsorption energy distribution from experimental data belongs to most difficult problems of adsorption science. In the case when thermodesorption data are used as a source of information, that difficult problem is overcome by the common use of the Arrhenius plot methods. So, we decided to carry out an extensive model investigation to show, how(More)
