  13. 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...

  14. 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...
