(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 ...
(2010-08-31)Self-assembled materials produced in the reaction between alkanethiol and Ag are characterized and compared. It is revealed that the size of the Ag substrate has a significant role in the self-assembly process and determines ...
(2012-09-18)Materials at the micrometer and submicrometer scale exhibit mechanical properties that are substantially different from bulk materials. With the increasing miniaturization of devices, accurate characterization of micro/nanoscale ...
Thermodynamics and kinetics of hydrogen storage in magnesium hydride: a theoretical study of catalyst-dopant, defect, and size effects (2014-01-16)With their high capacity, light-metal hydrides – like MgH2 – remain under scrutiny as reversible H-storage materials. A key question persists: Is there a means to enhance the hydrogen desorption/adsorption properties of ...
