Contribution to Accurate Spherical Gold Nanoparticle Size Determination by Single-Particle Inductively Coupled Mass Spectrometry: A Comparison with Small-Angle X-ray Scattering

Geertsen, Valérie; Barruet, Elodie; Gobeaux, Frédéric; Lacour, Jean-Luc; Taché, Olivier

Small-angle X-ray scattering spectroscopy (SAXS) is the method of choice for nanoparticle diameter and concentration determination. On the one hand, it is metrologically traceable for spherical nanoparticle mean diameter determination and does not require any sample preparation or calibration. On the other hand, single-particle inductively coupled mass spectrometry (SPICPMS) is…

Progression of the Morphology in Random Ionomers Containing Bulky Ammonium Counterions

Enokida, Joshua S.; Tanna, Vijesh A.; Winter, H. Henning; Coughlin, E. Bryan

Poly(isoprene-ran-dimethyloctylammonium styrenesulfonate) (P(I-ran-DMOASS)) copolymers with high molecular weights and dimethyloctylammonium styrenesulfonate (DMOASS) compositions ranging between 8 and 40 mol % (30 and 77 wt %) were synthesized via nitroxide-mediated polymerization. Thermal and viscoelastic characterization revealed distinct behaviors for the low (30–51 wt %) and high (56–77 wt…

Effects of oxidation on the physicochemical properties of polyunsaturated lipid membranes

Parra-Ortiz, Elisa; Browning, Kathryn L.; Damgaard, Liv S. E.; Nordström, Randi; Micciulla, Samantha; Bucciarelli, Saskia; Malmsten, Martin

The exposure of biological membranes to reactive oxygen species (ROS) plays an important role in many pathological conditions such as inflammation, infection, or sepsis. ROS also modulate signaling processes and produce markers for damaged tissue. Lipid peroxidation, mainly affecting polyunsaturated phospholipids, results in a complex mixture of oxidized products, which…

Conduction Band Fine Structure in Colloidal HgTe Quantum Dots

Hudson, Margaret H.; Chen, Menglu; Kamysbayev, Vladislav; Janke, Eric M.; Lan, Xinzheng; Allan, Guy; Delerue, Christophe; Lee, Byeongdu; Guyot-Sionnest, Philippe; Talapin, Dmitri V.

HgTe colloidal quantum dots (QDs) are of interest because quantum confinement of semimetallic bulk HgTe allows one to synthetically control the bandgap throughout the infrared. Here, we synthesize highly monodisperse HgTe QDs and tune their doping both chemically and electrochemically. The monodispersity of the QDs was evaluated using small-angle X-ray…
