Monodisperse Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene),Silica Microspheres: Synthesis and Assembly into Crystalline Colloidal Arrays,

Timothy L. Kelly
Monodisperse poly(3,4(ethylenediox( ythiophene),silica microparticles (PEDOT,silica) are prepared (see figure). The composite materials are ordered by the vertical deposition technique, yielding well(formed opal films of 15 m thickness. The silica hosts can be selectively removed by etching with HF, leaving behind an intact PEDOT microparticle. [source]

Flow characteristics of thermo-responsive microspheres in microchannel during the phase transition

AICHE JOURNAL, Issue 6 2009

Abstract To probe into the flow and aggregation behaviors of thermo-responsive microspheres in microchannel during the phase transition, the flow characteristics of monodisperse poly(n -isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) microspheres in microchannel with local heating are investigated systematically. When the fluid temperature in the microchannel increases across the lower critical solution temperature (LCST), the PNIPAM microspheres finish the phase transition within 10 s and are easily get aggregated during the phase transition. The diameter ratio of microsphere to microchannel, number of microspheres, initial distance between microspheres, and flow direction of fluid in microchannel, are key parameters affecting the flow and aggregation behaviors of the microspheres in microchannel during the phase transition. If a proper combination of these parameters is designed, the microspheres can aggregate together during the phase transition and stop automatically at a desired position in the microchannel by local heating, which is what the targeting drug delivery system expected. 2009 American Institute of Chemical Engineers AIChE J, 2009 [source]

Encapsulation of a Single Metal Nanoparticle with Tunable Size in a Monodisperse Polymer Microcapsule

Haiqing Li
Abstract A versatile approach to fabricate monodisperse poly[styrene- co -(divinyl benzene)] (PS- co -DVB) microcapsules that contain a single gold nanoparticle (AuNP) has been demonstrated. Using the PS- co -DVB microcapsule as a microreactor, aqueous HAuCl4 and NaBH4 solutions are subsequently infiltrated. The size of the resulting AuNP inside of the PS- co -DVB microcapsules is easily tunable by controlling the repeated infiltration cycles of aqueous HAuCl4 and NaBH4. PS- co -DVB microcapsules that contain a single silver and palladium nanoparticle are also obtained by following a similar protocol. [source]

Preparation of Immobilized Metal Affinity Chromatographic Packings by Immobilization of Carboxymethylated Asparate (CM-Asp) Based on Monodisperse Hydrophilic Non-porous Beads and Their Application

Bolin Gong
Abstract The hydrophilic immobilized metal affinity chromatographic packing was prepared by immobilization of carboxymethylated asparate (CM-Asp) as chelating ligand and Ni2+ as center ion on the base of monodispersed, 3.0 m non-porous monodisperse poly(glycidylmethacrylate- co -ethylenedimethacrylate) (PGMA/EDMA) particles. The retention behavior of proteins and the effect of pH on the retention in the range from 4.0 to 9.0 were investigated on both the naked and metal ion chelated columns. Four proteins were quickly separated in 2.0 min with linear gradient elution at a flow rate of 3.0 mLmin,1 by using the synthesized Ni2+ -CM-Asp-PGMA/EDMA packings. The separation time was shorter than other immobilized metal affinity chromatography reported in the literature. The Ni2+ -CM-Asp-PGMA/EDMA column was further investigated for the rapid separation and purification of copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (Cu,Zn-SOD) from the blood of pig in 3.0 min with only one step. The results obtained were satisfactory. [source]

Preparation of Medium Cation Exchange Stationary Phase of Polymeric Matrix and Their Chromatographic Properties

Gang Chen
Abstract Based on the monodisperse poly(glycidyl methacrylate-co-ethylenedimethacrylate) beads (PGMA/EDMA) with macropore as a medium, a new hydrophilic medium cation exchange (MCX) stationary phase for HPLC was synthesized by a new chemically modified method. The stationary phase was evaluated with the property of ion exchange, separability, reproducibility, hydrophilicity, effect of salt concentration, salt types, column loading and pH on the separation and retention of proteins in detail. It was found that it follows ion exchange chromatographic (IEC) retention mechanism. The measured bioactivity recovery for lysozyme was (965)%. The dynamic protein loading capacity of the synthesized MCX packings was 21.8 mg/g. Five proteins were almost completely separated within 6.0 min at a flow rate of 4 mL/min using the synthesized MCX resin. The MCX resin was also used for the rapid separation and purification of lysozyme from egg white with only one step. The purity and specific bioactivity of the purified lysozyme was found more than 95% and 70345 U/mg, respectively. [source]
