Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells (2019)
Journal Article
Liu, Z., Turyanska, L., Zamberlan, F., Pacifico, S., Bradshaw, T. D., Moro, F., …Thomas, N. R. (2019). Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells. Nanotechnology, 30(50), https://doi.org/10.1088/1361-6528/ab437c

We report on the synthesis of water-soluble gold nanoclusters capped with polyethylene glycol (PEG)-based ligands and further functionalized with folic acid for specific cellular uptake. The dihydrolipoic acid-PEG-based ligands terminated with -OMe,... Read More about Synthesis of folic acid functionalized gold nanoclusters for targeting folate receptor-positive cells.

Hybrid light emitting diodes based on stable, high brightness all-inorganic CsPbI 3 perovskite nanocrystals and InGaN (2019)
Journal Article
Zhang, C., Turyanska, L., Cao, H., Zhao, L., Fay, M. W., Temperton, R., …Patanè, A. (2019). Hybrid light emitting diodes based on stable, high brightness all-inorganic CsPbI 3 perovskite nanocrystals and InGaN. Nanoscale, 11(28), 13450-13457. https://doi.org/10.1039/C9NR03707A

Despite important advances in the synthesis of inorganic perovskite nanocrystals (NCs), the long-term instability and degradation of their quantum yield (QY) over time need to be addressed to enable the further development and exploitation of these n...

Soot in the Lubricating Oil: An Overlooked Concern for the Gasoline Direct Injection Engine? (2019)
Journal Article
Pfau, S. A., Rocca, A. L., Haffner-Staton, E., Rance, G. A., Fay, M. W., & Mcghee, M. (2019). Soot in the Lubricating Oil: An Overlooked Concern for the Gasoline Direct Injection Engine?. SAE Technical Papers, https://doi.org/10.4271/2019-01-0301

Formation of soot is a known phenomenon for diesel engines, however, only recently emerged for gasoline engines with the introduction of direct injection systems. Soot-in-oil samples from a three-cylinder turbo-charged gasoline direct injection (GDI)...

Steric and electronic control of 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions in carbon nanotube nanoreactors (2019)
Journal Article
Miners, S. A., Fay, M. W., Baldoni, M., Besley, E., Khlobystov, A. N., & Rance, G. A. (2019). Steric and electronic control of 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions in carbon nanotube nanoreactors. Journal of Physical Chemistry C, 123(10), 6294-6302. https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.jpcc.9b01190

The use of single-walled carbon nanotubes as effective nanoreactors for preparative bimolecular reactions has been demonstrated for the first time. We show that the extreme spatial confinement of guest reactant molecules inside host carbon nanotubes...
