    This compendium of demonstrations includes 17 activities that can be used to demonstrate topics to students and the general public.  They are useful for science festivals, family science nights, and science cafes.  ...

  6. Encapsulation & Controlled Release

    05 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: James J Marti, Kyle Forgette, Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    This module introduces the process of forming macrocapsules and the concept of self-assembly. Forming capsules at the macro, micro, and nano levels have very important applications in drug delivery, cosmetics, food technology, and cleaning up environmental toxins. The module includes a...

  7. Micelles

    05 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Dr. Lisa Siedman, Jeanette Mowery, Kyle Forgette, James J Marti, Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    This module introduces micelles and the concept of critical micelle concentration (CMC). Micelles have important applications in biotechnology. Micelles are sometimes used to deliver drugs to their target in the body. Micelles are also sometimes used to deliver genes into plant cells in...

  8. Golden Opportunities: Gold Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications

    14 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Catherine J. Murphy

    In this talk I will discuss how these nanoparticles are prepared, how their surface chemistry can be tuned, how apparent cytotoxicity can be traced back to reagents in the synthesis rather than the particles per se, how protein orientation can be controlled on their surfaces, how cells respond...

  9. Analyzing Tensile Strength and Fracture Behavior in MCC and Lactose Composite Tablets

    27 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Melanie Hacopian, Marcial Gonzalez, Isabel Bojanini, Vidal Lopez, Jesse Lee Hoffman, Caroline Baker

    Tablets containing various compositions of MCC and Lactose at several relative densities were subjected to fracture and analyzed for tensile strength. Results showed that as the mass fraction of Lactose increased, tensile strength and fracture strength decreased. Analyzing the tensile strength...

  12. [Illinois] Dimeric Trigger Responsive Drug Conjugate for High Loading Nanoencapsulates

    26 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: kaimin Cai

    Polymeric micelle is one of the most widely used drug delivery nanomedicine platforms; however, micelle drug delivery systems usually have very low drug loading and poorly defined composition, which greatly limited its further clinical translation. In the course of developing trigger responsive...
