Made-to-size Hydrogels Transform and Roll Out

From the hard ‘knock’ of bone to the soft ‘plop’ of gray matter, tissues cover an enormous spectrum of hardnesses – and they would be well to do so, for the stresses they must answer to are similarly diverse. Even stem cells are savvy enough to change their own hardness to match their peers, probing [...]

The development of an instant on-site selective visual detection system for trinitrotoluene (TNT) is a critical need for a secured society and a greener environment. Despite momentous advances in the field, a portable and reliable method for quick and selective detection of TNT still poses a challenge to many reasons including inappropriate usage in subordinate areas and [...]

Crosslink-free Coating of MSNs Demonstrated at UNAM

Although the small sizes and large combined surface areas of nanoparticles make them promising agents for drug delivery, their clearance, uptake and targeting profiles may leave much to be desired. So is the case with mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs for short) – their porous nature gives them an even larger volume to contain drugs or [...]
