A bioengineered approach for sustainable crude oil pollution treatment via entrapment, dispersal and removal using Nano-CarboScavenger (2015-07-22)Aqueous petroleum contamination continues to threaten life-dependent bodies of water and surrounding ecosystems including human habitation. It is now well established that most methods of petroleum remediation are either ...
(2010-08-31)The aim of my Ph. D. thesis is to generalize a method for targeted anti-cancer drug delivery. Hydrophilic polymer-drug conjugates involve complicated synthesis; drug-encapsulated polymeric nanoparticles limit the loading ...
(2010-01-06)This thesis studies methods of engineering the placement of nanoparticle with sub-micron resolution over macroscopic size scales. Such control holds great promise as an inexpensive methodology for manufacturing devices, ...
(2015-04-28)Nano-sized materials have been widely used in many products, such as painting materials, cosmetics, and drug cargos. Especially in biological applications, nanoparticles work as drug delivery carriers in recent decades due ...
(2012-09-18)The goal of my Ph. D. research is to develop a precisely size-controlled drug conjugated silica nanoparticles as a new type of drug delivery system for improved cancer therapy. By using such monodisperse, drug-containing ...
(2012-06-27)Nanostructures typically exhibit thermo-physical properties that are different from their bulk counterparts. The size dependence of thermo physical properties is attributed to changing energy and mass transport phenomenon ...
(2010-08-20)In this dissertation I present my research on the effective interactions of colloidal particles induced by a smaller species, as well as the structure of colloidal particles undergoing freeze casting. In this research ...
Studying the interface between DNA and inorganic nanoparticles to control shape and anisotropicity (2015-07-08)Nanomaterials with their unique optical, electrical and chemical properties are promising candidates for various applications ranging from catalysis to biomedicine. To realize the full potential of nanomaterials, it is ...
