This study aimed to label ampicillin‐loaded graphene oxide nanoflake (AMP‐GO) with 99mTc and evaluate of its in vitro binding to Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. Firstly, ampicillin was loaded into graphene oxide nanoflake prepared. AMP‐GO was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) techniques, and the amount of loaded ampicillin onto GO was determined by UV‐Vis absorption spectroscopy. AMP and AMP‐GO were labeled with 99mTc using stannous chloride reducing agent. Labeling efficiency of 99mTc‐AMP‐GO was found to be 97.66 ±&n...

Publication date: Available online 3 February 2018 Source:Journal of Molecular Liquids Author(s): Rouhollah Khani, Batoul Roostaei, Ghodsieh Bagherzade, Maryam Moudi One of the main subjects in nanoscience is the integration of green chemistry principles to nanotechnology. Recently the ever-increasing need to develop eco-friendly metal nanoparticle synthesis processes is observed. In this research, the ability of the fruit extracts of Ziziphus spina-christi (L.) Willd. was examined as novel reducing agents for the green synthesis of copper nanoparticles (Cu-NPs). Biosynthesized Cu-NPs were characterized by UV–Vis sp...

Silver phosphate nanoparticles were biologically synthesised, for the first time, using a dilute silver nitrate solution as the silver ion supplier, and without any source of phosphate ion. The applied bacterium was Sporosarcina pasteurii formerly known as Bacillus pasteurii which is capable of solubilising phosphate from soils. It was speculated that the microbe accumulated phosphate from the organic source during the growth period, and then released it to deionised water. According to the transmission electron microscopy images and X-ray diffraction results, the produced nanoparticles were around 20 nm in size and identi...

In this study, copper sulfate was successfully embedded in filter paper through soaking and copper oxide was successfully embedded in filter paper via in situ technique using the copper sulfate-embedded paper as the starting material. Using color analysis, the filter paper soaked with copper sulfate solution was observed to change color from white to blue, indicating the presence of embedded copper sulfate salts. Furthermore, upon soaking this filter paper with sodium hydroxide solution, the color changed from blue to brown, indicating the presence of copper oxide. X-ray diffraction (XRD) spectroscopy confirms the observed...

Zaldívar-Cadena An electroless deposition process was used to synthesize with a controlled morphology, polycrystalline ZnO on glass substrates as antimicrobial coatings. The influence of deposition temperature (Tdep) on the physicochemical and antimicrobial properties of the ZnO films was analyzed. The results indicated that a change in deposition temperature greatly affected the morphology and t...
