Deposition of nanoparticles onto polysaccharide-coated surfaces: implications for nanoparticle–biofilm interactions
While environmental biofilms have recently been implicated as a potential major sink for nanoparticles (NPs), the mechanisms of interactions remain largely unknown.
Sulfidation of copper oxide nanoparticles and properties of resulting copper sulfide
Sulfidation of 40 nm CuO nanoparticles in water yields poorly structured CuxSy and crystalline covellite (CuS) with increasing apparent solubility.
Surface chemistry, charge and ligand type impact the toxicity of gold nanoparticles to Daphnia magna
Using highly characterized gold nanoparticles this study determined that ligand identity, nanoparticle surface charge and aggregation type alters toxicity of gold nanoparticles to Daphnia magna.
Iron oxide nanoparticles induce Pseudomonas aeruginosa growth, induce biofilm formation, and inhibit antimicrobial peptide function
It is important to understand any effects that iron-containing nanoparticles have on the environment and human health.
Green synthesis and formation mechanism of cellulose nanocrystal-supported gold nanoparticles with enhanced catalytic performance
A one-pot and green synthesis of gold nanoparticles deposited on cellulose nanocrystals under hydrothermal conditions using CNs as a reducing agent and stabilizing template for the reduction of 4-nitrophenol.
Natural water chemistry (dissolved organic carbon, pH, and hardness) modulates colloidal stability, dissolution, and antimicrobial activity of citrate functionalized silver nanoparticles
Critical water chemistry parameters (dissolved organic carbon (DOC), pH, and hardness) alter colloidal stability, dissolution dynamics, and antimicrobial activity of citrate-functionalized AgNPs.
