Summary of "Generation of nanoparticles upon mixing ethanol and water; Nanobubbles or Not?"

The debate as to whether nanoparticles that are formed upon mixing ethanol and water are nanobubbles or other nanoparticles has continued over the past decade. In this work, we test the hypothesis that long lived bulk nanobubbles are produced upon mixing ethanol and water, using techniques that probe the density and the pressure response of the nanoparticles.

Armoured nanobubbles; ultrasound contrast agents under pressure.

Robust methods for differentiating long-lived nanobubbles from other nanoparticles are required. Evaluation of the density and compressibility of nanoparticles should enable nanobubbles to be differen...

Controlled fragmentation of starch into nanoparticles using a dry heating treatment under mildly acidic conditions.

Normal corn starch was treated with acidic ethanol solution with various concentrations of ethanol (0, 10, 30, 50 and 95%) and acid (0.0026, 0.0053 and 0.0079 M) and then subjected to a dry heating ...

Effects of nanobubbles on peptide self-assembly.

It is believed that the aggregation of amyloid proteins or peptides is promoted by the presence of an air-water interface, and substantial evidence suggests that the characteristics of the air-water i...

Long-term stability of surface nanobubbles in under-saturated aqueous solution.

Surface nanobubbles should not be stable for more than a few milliseconds, however they have been shown to persist for days. Pinning of the three-phase contact line of surface nanobubbles has been pro...

Bulk Nanobubbles Fabricated By Repeatedly Compression of Microbubbles.

Nanobubbles (NBs), given its extraordinary properties, have drawn keen attention in the field of nano-technology worldwide. However, compared to the prevailing method in obtaining surface nanobubbles,...

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.

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.

A layer of protein coating adsorbed by NANOPARTICLES upon entry into PLASMA or other protein-containing biological fluids, which affects how nanoparticles are internalized by cells and cleared from the body.

A water-soluble thiol derived from hydrogen sulfide and ethanol. It is used as a reducing agent for disulfide bonds and to protect sulfhydryl groups from oxidation.

A material used for cementation of inlays, crowns, bridges, and orthodontic appliances and occasionally as a temporary restoration. It is prepared by mixing zinc oxide and magnesium oxide powders with a liquid consisting principally of phosphoric acid, water, and buffers. (From Bouchers' Clinical Dental Terminology, 3d ed)
