Gas-phase synthesis of gadolinium nanoparticles for magnetic resonance imaging contrast agents
Gadolinium ions are the paramagnetic component of the most common intravenous contrast agents for medical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Because gadolinium ions are toxic, these MRI contrast agents include chelating ...
Synthesis of Nanoparticles via Vapor Phase and Solution Phase Methods
Nanoparticles have increasing attention because of the size and shape-dependent properties, which differ from those of the corresponding bulk materials. These properties arise from their large surface area, quantum ...
Cross-linkable surfactant-stabilized polylactide-based nanoparticles by thiol-ene reactions in transparent miniemulsion
Biodegradable nanomaterials have attracted broad interests because of their significant biomedical applications. However, it remains a challenge to develop simple and robust approaches for the preparation of biodegradable ...
Development of a new aerosol reactor for the synthesis of metal nanoparticles
The dissertation focuses on the development of a new flame-based aerosol reactor configuration that combines thermal decomposition and hydrogen reduction to produce metal nanoparticles. This approach uses a fuel-rich ...
