21. Measuring silver nanoparticle dissolution in complex biological and environmental matrices using UV-Visible absorbance
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 8/2/2011
Authors: Justin M Zook, Stephen E Long, Danielle Cleveland, Carly Lay Geronimo, Robert I. MacCuspie
Abstract: Distinguishing the toxic effects of nanoparticles (NPs) themselves from the well-studied toxic effects of their ions is a critical but challenging measurement for nanotoxicity studies and regulation. This measurement is especially difficult for silv ...

22. Characterization of Nanoparticle Release from Polymer Nanocomposites Due to Fire
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 7/6/2011
Authors: Nasir M. Uddin, Marc R. Nyden, Rick D Davis
Abstract: Engineered nanoparticles, such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and nanofibers (CNFs) are increasingly being used as fire retardants and performance additives in polymeric materials. However, because of their small size and ability to interact with biologi ...

23. Hydrodynamic Fractionation of Finite Size Nano Gold Clusters
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 6/15/2011
Authors: De-Hao D. Tsai, Tae Joon Cho, Frank W DelRio, Julian S. Taurozzi, Michael Russel Zachariah, Vincent A Hackley
Abstract: We demonstrate a high resolution in situ experimental method for performing simultaneous size-classification and characterization of functional nanoscale gold clusters (NGCs) based on asymmetric-flow field flow fractionation (AFFF). Field emission sc ...

24. Interlaboratory Reproducibility of Size and Surface Charge Measurements on Nanoparticles prior to Biological Impact Assessment
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 6/3/2011
Authors: Gert Roebben, Sonia Ramirez-Garcia, Vincent A Hackley, Matthias Roesslein, Fred Klaessig, Vikram Kestens, Iseult Lynch, C. Michael Garner, Alan Rawle, Allison Elder, Vicky Colvin, Wolfgang Kreyling, Harald Krug, Zuzanna Lewicka, Scott McNeil, Andre Nel, Anil K. Patri, Peter Wick, Tian Xia, Guenther Oberdoerster, Kenneth Dawson
Abstract: The International Alliance for NanoEHS Harmonization (IANH) organises interlaboratory comparisons of methods relevant for a better understanding of the biological impacts of nano-objects, to highlight and remove sources of irreproducibility in existi ...

25. Predicting Microstructure Development During Casting of Drug Eluting Coatings
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 9/19/2010
Authors: David M. Saylor, Jonathan E Guyer, Daniel Wheeler, James A Warren
Abstract: We have devised a novel diffuse interface formulation to model the development of chem- ical and physical inhomogeneities, i.e. microstructure, during the process of casting drug eluting coatings. These inhomogeneities, which depend on the ...

26. 3D elemental and structural analysis of biological specimens using electrons and ions
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 8/26/2010
Author: Keana C K Scott
Abstract: We demonstrate the utility of focused ion beam scanning electron microscopy (FIB SEM) combined with energy dispersive x-ray spectrometry (EDS) for 3-dimensional (3D) morphological and elemental correlative analysis of sub-cellular features. Althoug ...

27. Separation and Metrology of Nanoparticles by Nanofluidic Size Exclusion
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 8/11/2010
Authors: Samuel M Stavis, Jon C Geist, Michael Gaitan
Abstract: A nanofluidic approach to the separation and metrology of nanoparticles is demonstrated. Advantages of this approach include nanometer-scale resolution, nanometer-scale to submicrometer-scale range, mitigation of hydrodynamic and diffusional limitat ...

28. PREPARATION OF NANOPARTICLE DISPERSIONS FROM POWDERED MATERIAL USING ULTRASONIC DISRUPTION
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 6/9/2010
Authors: Julian S. Taurozzi, Vincent A Hackley, Mark Wiesner
Abstract: This protocol is generic in nature and intended to provide relevant guidelines for the preparation of nanoparticle dispersions in liquid media by the application of ultrasonic energy. It applies specifically to source engineered nanomaterials (ENM) o ...

29. Dynamic light scattering investigations of nanoparticle aggregation following a light-induced pH jump
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 5/19/2010
Authors: Ryan Murphy, Denis Pristinski, Kalman D Migler, Jack F Douglas, Vivek M Prabhu
Abstract: We use dynamic light scattering to characterize the kinetics of nanoparticle aggregation. The aggregation process was conveniently initiated in photoacid generator (PAG) solutions where changes in the pH of the solution can be controlled by exposure ...

30. Methods for TEM analysis of NIST‰s SWCNT SRM
Topic: Nanotech/Environment, Health & Safety
Published: 3/25/2010
Authors: Roy Howard Geiss, Elisabeth Mansfield, Jeffrey A Fagan
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing a series of single-walled carbon nanotube, SWCNT, reference materials, RMs, to provide researchers with well characterized materials for their applications. The SWCNT reference m ...
