Synthesis of nanoparticles of iron oxide, silver and gold for photodegradation and detection of 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene
Various nano-structured materials were synthesized to be used in the purification and detection of contaminants in water. Iron oxides and extruded polystyrene/TiO2 nanocomposites were synthesized, characterized and evaluated ...
Synthesis, characterization and antibacterial properties of pure and Li doped ZnO nanoparticles for alternative water disinfection methods
As a consequence of growing water demand and pollution, water borne disease outbreaks are on the rise and current disinfection methods have shown to be ineffective in inactivating all pathogens during water treatment. Zinc ...
Pathogenic bacteria detection by coupled water-soluble Cd- and Zn-based fluorescent nanocrystals
Semiconductors quantum dots are considered very promising candidates for bio-imaging, microorganism detection and diagnosis applications, among others, because of their tunable optical properties and good optical stability ...
Single-step processing of Cu and Ag nanocrystals and nanocomposites for antimicrobial applications
Emerging and re-emerging pathogens pose a worldwide public health risk since they can cause severe infectious diseases, which are difficult to treat due to the ineffective action of traditional treatments. Furthermore, ...
