Manipulating the Structural Transformation of Fullerene Microtubes to Fullerene Microhorns having Microscopic Recognition Properties.

Summary of "Manipulating the Structural Transformation of Fullerene Microtubes to Fullerene Microhorns having Microscopic Recognition Properties."

We report the production of fullerene microtubes (FMTs), having solid cores bisecting their tubular cavities, from solutions of mixtures of fullerene C and C, and have demonstrated the structural transformation of FMTs to fullerene microhorns (FMHs) upon their exposure to alcohol/mesitylene mixtures at 25 ºC. The conically shaped microhorns have hollow interiors and exhibit preferential recognition of silica particles over fullerene C, polystyrene (PS) latex, PS hydroxylate or PS carboxylate particles of similar dimensions due to strong electrostatic interactions between negatively charged FMHs and positively charged silica particles.

Fluorescent fullerene nanoparticle-based lateral flow immunochromatographic assay for rapid quantitative detection of C-reactive protein.

A fluorescent fullerene nanoparticle (NP)-based lateral flow immunochromatographic assay (LFIA) was developed for the rapid and quantitative detection of C-reactive protein (CRP) in serum. The polyclo...

Synthesis of a Tetracorannulene-perylenediimide That Acts as a Selective Receptor for C over C.

We report the use of a tetraborylated perylenediimide as starting material for the preparation of a tetracorannulene-perylenediimide that is able to bind up to two fullerene-C molecules by host-guest ...

Direct imaging of structural disordering and heterogeneous dynamics of fullerene molecular liquid.

Structural rearrangements govern the various properties of disordered systems and visualization of these dynamical processes can provide critical information on structural deformation and phase transf...

Turning On the Near-Infrared Photoluminescence of Erbium Metallofullerenes by Covalent Modification.

The photoluminescence of lanthanide ions inside fullerenes is usually very weak due to the quenching effect of the fullerene cage. In the case of Er@C, the near-infrared emission from the Er ion is co...

Bioconcentration and bioaccumulation of C fullerene and C epoxide in biofilms and freshwater snails (Radix sp.).

Fullerenes are carbon nanomaterials that have awaken a strong interest due to their adsorption properties and potential applications in many fields. However, there are some gaps of information about t...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The uptake of naked or purified DNA by CELLS, usually meaning the process as it occurs in eukaryotic cells. It is analogous to bacterial transformation (TRANSFORMATION, BACTERIAL) and both are routinely employed in GENE TRANSFER TECHNIQUES.

A specialized field of physics and engineering involved in studying the behavior and properties of light and the technology of analyzing, generating, transmitting, and manipulating ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION in the visible, infrared, and ultraviolet range.

Computer systems capable of assembling, storing, manipulating, and displaying geographically referenced information, i.e. data identified according to their locations.

Polyomavirus antigens which cause infection and cellular transformation. The large T antigen is necessary for the initiation of viral DNA synthesis, repression of transcription of the early region and is responsible in conjunction with the middle T antigen for the transformation of primary cells. Small T antigen is necessary for the completion of the productive infection cycle.

Modifying, carrying, or manipulating an item external to itself by an animal, before using it to effect a change on the environment or itself (from Beck, Animal Tool Behavior, 1980).
