The biological toxicity of CdTe quantum dots (QDs) to bovine serum albumin (BSA) has been investigated mainly by fluorescence spectra, UV-vis absorption spectra and circular dichroism (CD) under simulative physiological conditions. Fluorescence data revealed that the quenching mechanism of BSA by CdTe QDs was a static quenching process and the binding(More)
Measuring protein damage by nanomaterials may give insight into the mechanisms of toxicity of nanomaterials. The toxic effects of nanoAg on bovine serum albumin (BSA) were thoroughly studied using fluorescence spectroscopy, ultraviolet-visible absorption spectroscopy, resonance light scattering spectroscopy (RLS), circular dichroism spectroscopy (CD) and(More)
Due to their unique fluorescent properties, quantum dots present a great potential for biolabelling applications; however, the toxic interactions of quantum dots with biopolymers are little known. The toxic interactions of glutathione-capped CdTe quantum dots with trypsin were studied in this paper using synchronous fluorescence spectroscopy, fluorescence(More)
Quantum dots (QDs) are recognized as some of the most promising candidates for future applications in biomedicine. However, concerns about their safety have delayed their widespread application. Human serum albumin (HSA) is the main protein component of the circulatory system. It is important to explore the interaction of QDs with HSA for the potential in(More)
Grasspea (Lathyrus sativus L., 2n = 14), a member of the family Leguminosae, holds great agronomic potential as grain and forage legume crop in the arid areas for its superb resilience to abiotic stresses such as drought, flood and salinity. The crop could not make much progress through conventional breeding in the past, and there are hardly any detailed(More)
Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) nanosheets are prepared by a novel and effective method, in which sodium hydroxide and potassium hydroxide molten salts are used to exfoliate h-BN to obtain nanosheets. BN nanoscrolls are also obtained. The as-prepared products can be readily dispersed in a wide range of solvents, including water and ethanol, and form stable(More)
A type of single-crystal gallium nitride mesoporous membrane is fabricated and its supercapacitor properties are demonstrated for the first time. The supercapacitors exhibit high-rate capability, stable cycling life at high rates, and ultrahigh power density. This study may expand the range of crystals as high-performance electrode materials in the field of(More)
A remarkable enhancement of light extraction efficiency in GaN-based blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with rough beveled ZnO nanocone arrays grown on the planar indium tin oxide (ITO) layer is reported. The light output power of LEDs with rough beveled ZnO nanocone arrays was increased by about 110% at 20 mA compared with conventional LEDs with planar ITO.(More)
The progress in nitrides technology is widely believed to be limited and hampered by the lack of high-quality gallium nitride wafers. Though various epitaxial techniques like epitaxial lateral overgrowth and its derivatives have been used to reduce defect density, there is still plenty of room for the improvement of gallium nitride crystal. Here, we report(More)
A novel, simple, and efficient method for the preparation of the fluorinated hexagonal boron nitride nanosheets (F-BNNSs) and the corresponding magnetic properties is presented. A one-step route is used to exfoliate and fluorinate the BNNSs by ammonium fluoride (NH4F) from hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) powder. Through related instrument characterizations(More)
