Increasing reaction temperature produces photoluminescent polymer nanodots (PPNDs) with decreased particle size and increased quantum yield. Such PPNDs are used as an effective fluorescent sensing platform for label-free sensitive and selective detection of Cu(II) ions with a detection limit as low as 1 nM. This method is successfully applied to determine(More)
The present article reports on a simple, economical, and green preparative strategy toward water-soluble, fluorescent carbon nanoparticles (CPs) with a quantum yield of approximately 6.9% by hydrothermal process using low cost wastes of pomelo peel as a carbon source for the first time. We further explore the use of such CPs as probes for a fluorescent(More)
In this work, we develop a novel environmentally friendly strategy toward one-pot synthesis of CuS nanoparticle-decorated reduced graphene oxide (CuS/rGO) nanocomposites with the use of L-cysteine, an amino acid, as a reducing agent, sulfur donor, and linker to anchor CuS nanoparticles onto the surface of rGO sheets. Upon visible light illumination (λ > 400(More)
The present communication reports on the first use of commercially available three-dimensional porous Ni foam (NF) as a novel electrochemical sensing platform for nonenzymatic glucose detection. NF not only acts as a working electrode, but also functions as an effective electrocatalyst for electrooxidation of glucose. The sensor exhibits high selectivity(More)
The present communication demonstrates the proof of concept of using CoFe layered double hydroxide (CoFe-LDHs) nanoplates as an effective peroxidase mimetic to catalyze the oxidation of peroxidase substrate 3,3',5,5'-tetramethylbenzidine in the presence of H(2)O(2) to produce a blue solution. We further demonstrate successfully CoFe-LDHs nanoplate-based(More)
In this paper, we develop a cost-effective and simple route for the synthesis of Au nanoparticles (AuNPs) decorated graphene oxide (GO) nanosheets using polyoxyethylene sorbitol anhydride monolaurate (TWEEN 20) as a stabilizing agent for GO as well as a reducing and immobilizing agent for AuNPs. The AuNPs assemble on the surface of TWEEN-functionalized GO(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of trichloroethylene (TCE) toxicity on the normal human liver cells (L02 cells) and hepatocytes with CYP2E1 gene overexpression which was constructed through molecular cloning technology in our laboratory, then to explore the roles of CYP2E1 gene in TCE toxicity. METHODS L02 cells and hepatocytes with CYP2E1(More)
The modified coffee-ring effect is used to self-assemble highly uniform, long-range-ordered Ag nanowire arrays. As the oriented Ag nanowire arrays provide excellent membranes for surface-enhanced Raman scattering, the molecular mechanism of cell adhesion and growth is systematically studied and well understood. This work has important significance for life(More)
The present communication reports on the rapid preparation of 1,5-diaminoanthraquinone nanofibers (DAAQNFs) on a large scale by a reprecipitation method and their subsequent decoration with small platinum nanoparticles (PtNPs) using tannic acid (TA) as a reducing agent. It suggests the resultant PtNP/DAAQNF composites exhibit a good catalytic activity(More)
