15. Aggregation/agglomeration state of carbon nanotubes
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 10/12/2012
Authors: Vivek M Prabhu, Toshiya Okazaki, Takeshi Eitoku, Masayoshi Tange, Haruhisa Kato
Abstract: Evaluation of aggregation and agglomeration of carbon nanotube (CNT) solution has been one of the key issues for applications. Here we introduce a simple method based on depolarized dynamic light scattering (DDLS) performed at multiple scattering ang ...

16. UV-induced photochemical transformations of citrate capped silver nanoparticle suspensions
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 9/14/2012
Authors: Justin M Gorham, Robert I. MacCuspie, Kate L Klein, D. Howard Fairbrother, Richard D Holbrook
Abstract: Due to the increasing use of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in consumer products, it is essential to understand how variables, such as light exposure, may change the physical and chemical characteristics of AgNP suspensions. To this end, the effect o ...

17. Protective roles of single-wall carbon nanotubes in ultrasonication-induced DNA base damage
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 8/27/2012
Authors: Elijah J Petersen, Xiaomin X. Tu, M Miral Dizdar, Ming Zheng, Bryant C Nelson
Abstract: Ultrasonication is a physical process known to generate abundant levels of oxygen-derived species such as hydroxyl radicals, hydrogen atoms, and hydrogen peroxide. Highly reactive hydroxyl radicals can react with DNA to generate strand breaks and a m ...

18. Effects of chlorine and other water quality parameters on the release of silver nanoparticles from a ceramic surface
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 8/11/2012
Authors: Michael W Stewart, Angela Bielefeldt, Elisabeth Mansfield, R. Scott Summers, Joseph N Ryan
Abstract: A quartz crystal microbalance was used to determine the effects of different water quality parameters on the desorption of silver nanoparticles from surfaces representative of ceramic water filters (CWFs). Silver nanoparticles stabilized with 25-30% ...
