Highly amino-functionalized fluorescent carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) were fabricated by hydrothermal carbonization of chitosan at a mild temperature. They were applied to bioimaging of human lung adenocarcinoma A549 cells, showing low cytotoxicity and excellent biocompatibility.
Reduced graphene oxide (RGO) and silver nanoparticle (AgNP) hybrids (RGO-AgNP) were prepared by a facile one-pot method using Poly (N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) as reductant and stabilizer. Folic acid (FA) molecules were attached to the RGO-AgNP by physisorption for targeting specific cancer cells with folate receptors (FRs) and using as Raman reporter molecules.(More)
A water-soluble brilliant blue/reduced graphene oxide/tetradecyltriphenylphosphonium bromide composite (BB-rGO-TTP) was prepared by using noncovalent brilliant blue-functionalized reduced graphene oxide (BB-rGO) as the tetradecyltriphenylphosphonium bromide (TTP) carrier. Antibacterial performance of this novel composite was investigated for both(More)
Herein, we report a simple, one-step reflux method for synthesis of photoluminescent carbon dots (CDs) using citric acid as the carbon source and diethylenetriamine (DETA) as the surface passivation reagent along with a high quantum yield (82.40%), the fluorescence intensity of the CDs was found to be effectively quenched by Hg(II) ions. Upon addition of(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to synthesize and evaluate hyperbranched cationic glycogen derivatives as an efficient nonviral gene-delivery vector. METHODS A series of hyperbranched cationic glycogen derivatives conjugated with 3-(dimethylamino)-1-propylamine (DMAPA-Glyp) and 1-(2-aminoethyl) piperazine (AEPZ-Glyp) residues were synthesized and(More)
The vibrational modes of the deoxyribose-phosphodiester backbone moiety of DNA and their interactions with the interfacial aqueous environment are addressed with two-dimensional (2D) infrared spectroscopy on a femto- to picosecond time scale. Beyond the current understanding in the harmonic approximation, the anharmonic character and delocalization of the(More)
Self-quenching in the aggregation state is overcome, and tunable solid-state photoluminescence of carbon-dot powder is achieved. Furthermore, based on the controllable optical property in organic solvents, a novel concept, i.e., constructing dual-fluorescence morphologies from single luminescent species, is presented to realize white-light emission.
DNA oligomers are studied at 0% and 92% relative humidity, corresponding to N < 2 and N > 20 water molecules per base pair. Two-dimensional (2D) infrared spectroscopy of DNA backbone modes between 920 and 1120 cm(-1) maps fluctuating interactions at the DNA surface. At both hydration levels, a frequency fluctuation correlation function with a 300 fs decay(More)
A simple, low cost and convenient method was used to prepare SiO2@Cu core-shell composite using SiO2 spheres as the core and copper nanoparticles as the shell. A uniform spherical particle of SiO2 was fabricated according to an improved Stöber method. The SiO2 spheres served as a support for the immobilization of copper by reducing Cu2+ in aqueous solution(More)
