1. Orthogonal Analysis of Functional Gold Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications
Published: 9/11/2015
Authors: De-Hao D. Tsai, Yi-Fu Lu, Frank W DelRio, Tae Joon Cho, Suvajyoti S. Guha, Michael Russel Zachariah, Fan Zhang, Andrew John Allen, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: We report a comprehensive strategy based on implementation of orthogonal measurement techniques to provide critical and verifiable material characteristics for functionalized gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) used in biomedical applications. Thiolated polye ...

2. Reference Diffraction Patterns, Microstructure, and Pore Size Distribution for the Copper (II) benzene-1,3,5-tricarboxylate Metal Organic Framework (Cu-BTC) Compounds
Published: 3/1/2015
Authors: Winnie K Wong-Ng, James A. Kaduk, Daniel W Siderius, Andrew John Allen, Laura Espinal, Brad Boyerinas, Igor Levin, Matthew Suchomel, Jan Ilavsky, Eric J Cockayne, Hui Wu
Abstract: Cu-paddle-wheel-based Cu3(BTC)2 (nicknamed Cu-BTC, where BTC ≡ benzene 1,3,5-tricarboxylate) is a metal organic framework (MOF) compound that adopts a zeolite topology. We have determined the pore size distribution using the Gelb and Gubbins te ...

3. Dissolution, Agglomerate Morphology, and Stability Limits of Protein-Coated Silver Nanoparticles
Published: 8/19/2014
Authors: Matthew N. Martin, Andrew John Allen, Robert I. MacCuspie, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: Little is understood about the impact coating molecules have on nanoparticle dissolution kinetics and intermediate agglomerate formation in a dilute nanoparticle dispersion. Dissolution and agglomeration processes compete in removing isolated nanopa ...

4. Unveiling the Origin of a Nonequilibrium Dynamic Process Detected by X-Ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy via a Finite Element Analysis Approach
Published: 7/1/2014
Authors: Li Ma, Fan Zhang, Andrew John Allen, Lyle E Levine
Abstract: It is a scientific and engineering challenge to characterize materials under nonequilibrium conditions. In recent years, X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy (XPCS), a synchrotron based coherent X-ray scattering technique, has been found useful in - ...

5. Use of Single Particle Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry to Characterize a New Silver Nanoparticle Reference Material
Published: 6/11/2014
Authors: Karen E Murphy, Jingyu Liu, William F Guthrie, Justin M Gorham, John E Bonevich, Andrew John Allen, Michael R Winchester, Vincent A Hackley, Robert MacCuspie
Abstract: In this study we use inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry operated in single particle mode (spICP-MS) to simultaneously characterize the size distribution and dissolved silver fraction of a new silver nanoparticle (AgNP) candidate reference m ...

6. Just Add Water ‹ reproducible singly dispersed silver nanoparticle suspensions
Published: 6/19/2013
Authors: Robert I. MacCuspie, Andrew John Allen, Matthew N. Martin, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are of interest due to their antimicrobial attributes, which are derived from their inherent instability and subsequent release of silver ions into solution. At the same time, this instability makes achieving stable long ...

7. Flexible Metal Organic Framework Compound, Ni(1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene)[Ni(CN)4]n, for CO2 Sorption Applications
Published: 4/7/2013
Authors: Winnie K Wong-Ng, Jeffrey T Culp, Yu-Sheng Chen, Laura Espinal, Andrew John Allen, Daniel W Siderius, Craig Brown, Wendy Queen, Peter Zavalij, Christopher Matranga
Abstract: New sorbent materials are required for carbon capture because coal-fired electrical power plants, the largest emitters of this greenhouse gas, will continue to produce much of our nation‰s electricity for at least several decades. Within the family o ...

8. Improved Synthesis and Crystal Structure of the Flexible Pillared Layer Porous Coordination Polymer: Ni(1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene)[Ni(CN)4]
Published: 4/4/2013
Authors: Winnie K Wong-Ng, Jeffrey T Culp, Yu-Sheng Chen, Peter Zavalij, Laura Espinal, Daniel W Siderius, Andrew John Allen, Steve Scheins, Christopher Matranga
Abstract: A new method of synthesis was developed for the flexible coordination polymer Ni(L)[Ni(CN)4], L=1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene (bpene) to increase its CO2 sorption uptake. The structure of the newly synthesized bpene has been determined by synchrotron X ...

9. Structure and Dynamics Studies of Concentrated Micrometer-Sized Colloidal Suspensions
Published: 1/7/2013
Authors: Fan Zhang, Andrew John Allen, Lyle E Levine, Jan Ilavsky, Gabrielle Gibbs Long
Abstract: We present an experimental study of the structural and dynamical properties of concentrated suspensions of a series of different sized polystyrene microspheres dispersed in glycerol for volume fraction concentrations between 10 % and 20 %. The static ...

10. Ultra-Small Angle X-ray Scattering Instrument at the Advanced Photon Source, History, Recent Development, and Current Status
Published: 1/1/2013
Authors: Andrew John Allen, Fan Zhang, Lyle E Levine, Gabrielle Gibbs Long, Jan Ilavsky, Pete R. Jemian
Abstract: The history and development over more than 25 years is presented and discussed of an ultra-small-angle X-ray scattering (USAXS) instrument dedicated to serving a broad range of materials research needs. This history is traced from the instrument‰s o ...
