We report the direct modification of SPIOs with a biomolecule and the target-specific assembly system of these modified SPIOs for using MRI contrast agents. The transverse relaxation rate of the aqueous solutions containing the modified SPIOs was altered by the dispersion state.
The synthesis and processing of nanoparticles consisting of metallic nanocrystal cores and organic monolayer shells promise interesting technological applications. Here, we report the synthesis of gold nanoparticles modified with ionic liquids based on the imidazolium cation. Aggregation-induced color changes of the gold nanoparticles in an aqueous solution… (More)
We report the direct modification of SPIOs with a biomolecule, and the sequence-specific assembly of the modified SPIOs was achieved with the aptamer-small molecule interaction. In addition, the transverse relaxation rate of the aqueous solutions containing the modified SPIOs was altered by the dispersion state.
The photo-triggered molecular release from the organic-inorganic polymer hybrids is presented in this manuscript. Initially, the preparation of the auto-degradable polymer is explained with the photo-cleavable group at the end of the polymer main-chain. The silica-based dye-loaded hybrids containing these polymers were fabricated. It was found that by UV… (More)
We present here the reversible signal regulation of (19)F NMR using the transition metal complex as a switching module. Water-soluble fluorinated dendrimers containing ferrocene were synthesized as a probe, and the signal intensities of (19)F NMR of the probes were monitored by changing the valence state of the ferrocene moiety. By oxidation of the… (More)
A series of boron ketoiminate derivatives that exhibited clear aggregation-induced emission (AIE) characteristics (in THF: Φ(PL)≤0.01; in the solid state: Φ(PL)=0.30-0.76) were prepared by the reactions of 1,3-enaminoketone derivatives with boron trifluoride-diethyl etherate. The structures and optical properties were investigated by UV-visible… (More)
Organoboron complexes having aggregation- and crystalization-induced emission properties are presented. The series of boron diiminates were synthesized and the emission behaviors of the synthesized compounds were investigated. Finally, it was found that significant enhancement of the emission depended on the crystallinity in the solid states.
For detecting reduced glutathione (GSH) with a (19)F NMR spectroscopy with time-specificity, we developed the probes based on gold nanoparticles modified with the fluorinated groups via the thermally-cleavable linkers. Before the heating treatment with the probe, the maleimide moiety as a binding site with GSH in the probe is inactivated by cycloaddition of… (More)
Biological reduction of fluorine-labeled indolequinone derivative (IQ-F) was characterized by (19)F NMR for quantitative molecular understanding. The chemical shift change in (19)F NMR allowed monitoring of the enzymatic reduction of IQ-F. Upon hypoxic treatment of IQ-F with NADPH:cytochrome P450 reductase, IQ-F was activated via catalytic one-electron… (More)
The crystallization of CaCO3 was examined by changing the addition time of poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) to an aqueous solution of calcium carbonate by selectively interacting with the crystal at different stages during the crystal-forming process. The precipitation of CaCO3 was carried out by a double jet method to prevent heterogeneous nucleation on glass… (More)
