New insight into the soot nanoparticles in a candle flame.
Summary of "New insight into the soot nanoparticles in a candle flame."
Using anodic aluminium oxide films as collectors, all four well known carbon forms, diamond, graphitic, fullerenic and amorphous particles, are identified inside a candle flame, suggesting a new nucleation mechanism for diamond growth and fullerene formation in a combustion synthesizing process.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Nanometer-sized particles that are nanoscale in three dimensions. They include nanocrystaline materials; NANOCAPSULES; METAL NANOPARTICLES; DENDRIMERS, and QUANTUM DOTS. The uses of nanoparticles include DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEMS and cancer targeting and imaging.
Pyrolysis of organic compounds at the temperature of a hydrogen-air flame to produce ionic intermediates which can be collected and the resulting ion current measured by gas chromatography.
Nanoparticles produced from metals whose uses include biosensors, optics, and catalysts. In biomedical applications the particles frequently involve the noble metals, especially gold and silver.
Deuterium Exchange Measurement
A research technique to measure solvent exposed regions of molecules that is used to provide insight about PROTEIN CONFORMATION.
The adopting or performing the role of another significant individual in order to gain insight into the behavior of that person.
Previous studies suggest that structure and reactivity of soot depend on combustion conditions like the fuel/oxygen ratio and nature of fuels. However, the essence of how combustion conditions affect...
Carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) (6-18nm in size) were prepared by refluxing corn stalk soot in nitric acid. The obtained acid-oxidized CNPs are soluble in water due to the existence of carboxylic and hydr...
In this Letter, we demonstrate the first use of carbon nanoparticles (CNPs) obtained from carbon soot by lighting a candle as a cheap, effective fluorescent sensing platform for Ag(+) detection with a...
Photoelectric charging of particles is a powerful tool for online characterization of submicrometer aerosol particles. Indeed photoionization based techniques have high sensitivity and chemical select...
In vitro testing is a common first step in assessing combustion-generated and engineered nanoparticle-related health hazards. Commercially available viability assays are frequently used to compare the...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the antibacterial activity of crosslinked quaternary ammonium polyethylenimine (PEI) nanoparticles incorporated at 1-2% w/w in a commercial soft liner...
The effect of Antibacterial Nanoparticles, Incorporated in cement, on S.mutans in the margins of provisional restorations is going to be examined clinically by using two kinds of provision...
Bloodstream infections are common in Intensive Care Units (ICUs). The need of a central venous line increases the risk of bacteremia and central venous catheter (CVC) related infections. T...
The CandLE study with at maximum daily dose of 32 mg candesartan or 16/12.5 mg candesartan/hydrochlorothiazide has the objective to evaluate under naturalistic conditions, i.e. under routi...
