  • Coupling Small-particle Adsorbents
    with Membranes for Trace-contaminant Removal in Water Treatment

    The application of superfine powdered activated carbon (S-PAC) for drinking water treatment is part of recent advances in nanomaterials to develop microporous materials for adsorption. Micro/Ultrafiltration has been proposed as a means of removing S-PAC from the effluent drinking water stream, howev...

  • Design of Nanoparticle-liposome Assemblies
    as Cell Membrane Analogs for Drug Delivery Applications

    Our study describes a hydrophilic nanoparticle drug delivery system that utilizes gold nanoparticles (GNPs) with different ligands in tandem with a particle drug carrier, or phospholipid membrane. The drug delivery will be simulated using a fluorescent dye and measuring the leakage rate of the dye f...
