Tensile behaviour of individual fibre bundles in the human lumbar anulus fibrosus
Disc degeneration is a common medical affliction whose origins are not fully understood. An improved understanding of its underlying mechanisms could lead to the development of more effective treatments. The aim of this ...
Direct deposition of silver nanoplates on quartz surface by sequence pre-treatment hydroxylation and silanisation
Silver nanoparticles deposited on quartz substrates are widely used as SERS substrates. The nanoparticles can be deposited directly from colloidal solution by dipping technique. However, the adhesion of the particles on ...
In vivo targeted therapy of gastric tumors via the mechanical rotation of a flower-like Fe3O4@Au nanoprobe under an alternating magnetic field
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-07-14)
Owing to their hypotoxicity, great spatial resolution and tomographic properties, Fe3O4 nanoparticles (NPs) are becoming one of the most promising materials for noninvasive biological imaging and shape-dependent therapeutic ...
In vivo high-efficiency targeted photodynamic therapy of ultra-small Fe3O4@polymer-NPO/PEG-Glc@Ce6 nanoprobes based on small size effect
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-03-13)
Effectively prolonging the residence time of nanoprobes in the tumor region and reducing the accumulation of nanoprobes in the vital organs (for example, lung, liver and spleen) is crucial for high-efficiency photodynamic ...
Carbon Nanotubes in TiO2 Nanofiber Photoelectrodes for High-Performance Perovskite Solar Cells
1D semiconducting oxides are unique structures that have been widely used for photovoltaic (PV) devices due to their capability to provide a direct pathway for charge transport. In addition, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have ...
