Aerosol microdroplets exhibit a stable pH gradient
Suspended aqueous aerosol droplets (< 50 mu m) are microreactors for many important atmospheric reactions. In droplets and other aquatic environments, pH is arguably the key parameter dictating chemical and biological ...
Preparation and evaluation of nanocellulose-gold nanoparticle nanocomposites for SERS applications
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-06-09)
Nanocellulose is of research interest due to its extraordinary optical, thermal, and mechanical properties. The incorporation of guest nanoparticles into nanocellulose substrates enables production of novel nanocomposites ...
Plasmonic colorimetric and SERS sensors for environmental analysis
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-03-10)
The potential for water pollution outbreaks requires the development of rapid, yet simple detection methods for water quality monitoring. Plasmonic nanostructures such as gold (AuNPs) and silver (AgNPs) nanoparticles are ...
