Many plastics are in our oceans due to pollution, including ocean dumping and land runoff. Sunlight and alkaline ocean water break these plastics down into small particles, many are nanoscale in size. These nanoparticles can easily enter our cells. Students examine if and how these...
Electro-deposition of Copper on a Filter Template for Growing Nanowires
02 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Francis Nguyen
This lab is designed to help students understand the electro-plating process of growing nanowires. This experiment will use an electro-plating process to transfer metal ions in a solution to a template to produce nanowires. The electric field in the solution carries these ions and deposits them...

[Illinois] Graphene Synthesis from Biochar using Wet Chemical Treatment Process
17 Dec 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Sriraam Chandrasekaran
Biochar is a major by-product from pyrolysis and gasification of biomass. Biochar finds potential applications in soil amendment, carbon sequestration, super capacitors, adsorbents, etc. However, its applicability is limited by its properties such as low carbon content, low porosity, and surface...

[Illinois] Cancer Community Symposium 2012: Imaging Estrogen Receptors and Estrogen-Receptor Function in Breast Cancer by Positron Emission Tomography (PET): Improved Selection of Patients for Benefit from Endocrine Therapies
09 May 2012 | | Contributor(s):: John A. Katzenellenbogen
The growth of many breast cancers is regulated by estrogens, and these cancers can be treated effectively with endocrine therapies (ET). Identifying patients who will benefit from ET, however, continues to be challenging. Measurement of estrogen receptor (ER) levels in tumor biopsy samples using...
