  2. Superficial Science – Polymer Surface Science at Purdue

    26 Aug 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffery Youngblood

    In this presentation, Professor Youngblood describes his current research projects and the theme that ties them together - surface science.

  3. Hydration Dynamics in an Amphiphilic Nanostructure under Controlled Hydration Conditions

    16 Sep 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Amitabha Chattopadhyay

    Amphiphilic surfactants self assemble to form reverse (or inverted) micelles in non-polar solvents in which the polar head groups of the surfactant monomers cluster to form a micellar core directed toward the center of the assembly and the hydrophobic tails extend outward into the bulk organic...

  4. Nanobiotechnology – a different perspective

    22 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Murali Sastry

    The study of the synthesis, exotic properties, assembly/packaging and potential commercial application of nanomaterials is an extremely important topic of research that is expected to have far-reaching global impact. The focus of my talk will be on an emerging branch of nanotechnology that...

  6. KIST/PU Design and Performance of Bioresponsive Nanocarriers with Tunable Reactivity for Drug and Gene Delivery

    23 Oct 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Dave Thompson

    Our lab has focused on the development of bioresponsive nanocarriers that are designed to release their cargo upon entry into acidic environments such as those found in cellular endosomes and sites of poor circulation. Computational methods have been used to design vinyl ether lipids of varying...

  7. Plasmon-resonant Nanorods as Multifunctional Imaging Agents

    28 Dec 2006 | | Contributor(s):: Alexander Wei

    Gold nanorods have several outstanding characteristics as optical contrastagents for biomedical imaging. Their strong optical absorption atnear-infrared (NIR) frequencies can be used to generate contrast for opticalcoherence tomography (OCT) imaging, and is well matched for detectionmodalities...
