Innovative hybrid nanocomposites based on a nanostructured block copolymer (BCP) matrix whose lamellar nanodomains are selectively loaded with metal nanoparticles, have been prepared. A symmetric poly(styrene-b-methylmethacrylate) (PS-b-PMMA) amorphous BCP showing a lamellar morphology has been employed. Thin films of PS-b-PMMA...

Gold nanoparticles (AuNPs) are of biomedical importance, such as delivery vectors. Therefore, we used all-atom molecular dynamic simulations to study the interaction of AuNPs with cell membrane (DMPC bilayer). We observed that the AuNPs adhered spontaneously on the surface of...

The crystallization of Au/glass ultrathin films for surface plasmon resonance (SPR) biosensor has been studied using synchrotron X-ray scattering and field emission scanning electron microscope. In films thinner than 30 nm, crystallized Au grains with  preferred orientation were formed...

Au nanoparticles and poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) composite films were prepared by electrodeposition of Au nanoparticles using pulse-current electrodeposition followed by the spin coating of P3HT and their enhanced electrochromic coloration was investigated. A relatively uniformed Au nanoparticle was obtained by the...
