Oil-Impregnated Hydrocarbon-Based Polymer Films
(Springer Nature, 2018-08-03)
Porous surfaces impregnated with a liquid lubricant exhibit minimal contact angle hysteresis with immiscible test liquids, rendering them ideal as self-cleaning materials. Rather than roughening a solid substrate, an ...
MII Technical Conference & Review 2018 : From Molecules to Manufacturing
(Virginia Tech, 2018-04-11)
"From Molecules to Manufacturing" is the 2018 Technical Conference & Review of the Macromolecules Innovation Institute at Virginia Tech. The abstract book contains a schedule of events and abstracts from poster sessions ...
Prediction of Young’s Modulus for Injection Molded Long Fiber Reinforced Thermoplastics
In this article, the elastic properties of long-fiber injection-molded thermoplastics (LFTs) are investigated by micro-mechanical approaches including the Halpin-Tsai (HT) model and the Mori-Tanaka model based on Eshelby’s ...
Capillary forces on a small particle at a liquid-vapor interface: Theory and simulation
(American Physical Society, 2018-09-24)
Nanoscale Bacteria‐Enabled Autonomous Drug Delivery System (NanoBEADS) Enhances Intratumoral Transport of Nanomedicine
Cancer drug delivery remains a formidable challenge due to systemic toxicity and inadequate extravascular transport of nanotherapeutics to cells distal from blood vessels. It is hypothesized that, in absence of an external ...
Synthesis, characterization, and luminescent properties of two new Zr(IV) metal-organic frameworks based on anthracene derivatives
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are crystalline materials constructed from metal ions or clusters, connected by multidentate organic ligands. Herein, we describe the synthesis and photophysical properties of two Zr-based, ...
Ammonium Bisphosphonate Polymeric Magnetic Nanocomplexes for Platinum Anticancer Drug Delivery and Imaging with Potential Hyperthermia and Temperature-Dependent Drug Release
Novel magnetite-ammonium bisphosphonate graft ionic copolymer nanocomplexes (MGICs) have been developed for potential drug delivery, magnetic resonance imaging, and hyperthermia applications. The complexes displayed ...
GSA Tomorrow: An Open Challenge to Promote the Future of Geoscience
(Geological Society of America, 2018-11-20)
The future of geoscience rests on your shoulders. Geologists are passionate about their science and discuss their interests with vigor, firmly understanding why geoscience is as important to society as physiology, agriculture, ...
Folic Acid-Conjugated Cellulose Nanocrystals Show High Folate-Receptor Binding Affinity and Uptake by KB and Breast Cancer Cells
(American Chemical Society, 2018-10-24)
The study evaluates cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) as nanocarriers for targeted, intracellular delivery of molecular agents. CNCs were labeled with fluorescein-5′-isothiocyanate as an imaging agent and conjugated to folic ...
