Silver nanoclusters (Ag NCs) templated with DNAs have attracted much attention as novel fluorophores because of their convenient emission tunability by the sequence and length of the template DNAs. However, the precise production of Ag NCs in a site-specific manner
Owing to its high storage capacity (10.8 mass %), sodium borohydride (NaBH(4)) is a promising hydrogen storage material. However, the temperature for hydrogen release is high (>500 °C), and reversibility of the release is unachievable under reasonable conditions. Herein, we
Singlet oxygen ((1)O(2)) is a reactive oxygen species generated during photo-oxidation, inflammation, and via peroxidase-catalyzed reactions (e.g., myeloperoxidase and eosinophil peroxidase). (1)O(2) oxidizes the free amino acids Trp, Tyr, His, Cys, and Met, and those species present on peptides/proteins, with

In developing a chitosan/dextran-based (CD) hydrogel as an adhesion prevention postsurgical aid, the in vivo biodegradation rate, biodistribution, and inflammatory response are important parameters to the biomedical device design. Herein, for the first time, a CD hydrogel was prepared by
A new architecture for a biosensor is proposed using a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) modified with hemoglobin (Hb) and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) encapsulated in poly(amidoamine) dendrimer (PAMAM). The biosensors were characterized using ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy, ζ-potential and cyclic voltammetry to investigate
