Copper nanoparticles have been synthesized by the reduction of copper ions using plant leaf extracts of khat (Catha edulis), castor oil (Ricimus communis) and derjihara (Prosopis juliflora) as reducing and stabilizing agents. The progress of bio-reduction of Cu2+ ions generating metallic copper was monitored by observing the absorption peak around 566 nm, characteristic of surface […]

Mohammad E. Khosroshahi and Maral Asemani; Synthesis and Characterization of Hydrogel-based Ferroscaffold Containing Fluorescein Isothiocyanate (FITC) Surface Modified Magnetite Nanoparticles as Optical Marker; Advanced Nano-Bio-Materials and Devices; 2017:1(3):146-160

Porous ferroscaffolds have interesting applications in bioengineering such as tissue engineering, controlled drug release and bioimaging. In this work, the conjugated fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles (FMNP) were embedded in the hydrogel scaffold (FFS) to study the effect of static magnetic field on swelling for drug release purpose as well as to serve as […]

For many people, learning about new things such as a second language is an adventure and very fulfilling. Dopamine levels boost in the brain to help us maintain the new information. However, if dopamine levels are low, the new information literally goes in and out of the brain and is lost. This work postulates disability […]
