The synthesis of iron-nickel alloy nanoparticles using a reverse micelle technique
Irena Ban, Mihael Drofenik, Darko Makovec, 2006, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Nanosized Fe0.2Ni0.8 particles were prepared by reducing their salts with sodium borohydride (NaBH4) in cationic water-in-oil (w/o) microemulsions of water/cetyl-trimethyl-amonium bromide (CTAB) and n-butanol/isooctane at 25 °C.According to the TEM and X-ray diffraction analyses, the synthesized particles were around 4-12 nm in size. Due to their nanodimensions, the particles had a primitive cubic (pc) structure rather than the body-centered cubic (BCC) structure of the bulk material. An examination of the synthesis from the reverse micelle reveals that the morphology of the iron-nickel alloy nanoparticles depends mainly on the microemulsion`s composition. The magnetization of the nanoparticles was much lower than that of the bulk material, reflecting the influence of the nanodimensions on the particlesć magnetizations.

The characterisation of nanosized nickel-zinc ferrites synthesized within reverse micelles of CTAB/1-hexanol/water microemulsion
Vuk Uskoković, Mihael Drofenik, Irena Ban, 2004, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Stoichiometric nanocrystalline nickel-zinc ferrites were synthesized by a reverse micelle method following a multi-microemulsion approach. Different pH values were chosen for the alkali precipitating reaction during the synthesis of different powders. Synthesized, as-dried and subsequently calcined powders were characterized in terms of their magnetic properties. XRD analyses and specific-surface area measurements were used to determine the average particlesizes of the synthesized samples. DCS and TGA measurements were performed to reveal the phase transitions within the samples at elevated temperatures, whereas TEM was used to view and record the microstructure of the nanosized ferrite samples. A possible mechanism of the formation of the synthesized NiZn-ferrite was also discussed.

Antimicrobial medical textiles based on chitosan nanoparticles for gynaecological treatment
Tijana Ristić, 2014, doktorska disertacija

Opis: The aim of this dissertation was to develop a novel medical tampon for alternative gynaecological treatment using chitosan nanoparticles as an antimicrobial agent or as a drug delivery system. For this purpose viscose tampon band was used and functionalized with chitosan and trimethyl chitosan nanoparticles. A comprehensive of interactions between chitosan and cellulose as well as characterization of prepared materials were done. At the beginning, chitosan (CS) and trimethyl chitosan (TMC) solutions, as well as nanoparticles synthesised by ionic gelation were studied. Their characterization was focused on determining the charge and antimicrobial properties against common pathogenic microorganism. The influence of cationic charge on the inhibition of microbial growth was confirmed. Since CS and TMC solutions and nanoparticles dispersions exhibited antibacterial activity against Lactobacillus, a detailed investigation in chitosan’s antimicrobial mode of action was performed using a novel diffusion nuclear magnetic resonance (D-NMR). D-NMR allowed the monitoring of intra- and extracellular water exchange from the cells indicating the membrane alteration and leakage of intracellular constituencies. Further, in order to study the adsorption phenomena and molecular interactions between CS/TMC (solution or nanoparticles) and cellulose material, model cellulose surfaces were used, and adsorption was studied by quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation. CS and TMC were favourably deposited onto cellulose model surface at higher ionic strength, higher pH values, i.e. factors causing lower solubility, where the presence of electrostatic interactions was negligible and non-electrostatic interactions were dominant. The knowledge gained from the model surfaces was extremely helpful in characterization of real systems, i.e. functionalized cellulose fibres and for understanding the obtained results. Immobilization of CS and TMC (in the form of solution and/or nanoparticles) onto cellulose viscose fibres was confirmed with several analytical methods. The attachment of chitosan onto fibres was reversible, as endorsed with desorption studies mimicking the conditions of vaginal usage. Evaluation of antimicrobial properties was performed using two different techniques, both revealing a high inhibition of the tested microorganism. In addition, Lactobacillus susceptibility testing has shown that chitosan-coated fibres do not have any negative influence on the resident microbiota. Assessment of in-vitro cytotoxicity demonstrated that samples do not cause a cytotoxic effect in direct contact. Additionally, model drug was incorporated into chitosan nanoparticles and subsequently attached onto fibres in order to create modern, vaginal drug delivery systems. Antimicrobial medical textiles investigated in the scope of this dissertation show the potential for their exploitation in gynaecological field as preventive or curative treatment without triggering any adverse effects for the user.

2014, doktorska disertacija

Opis: Cobalt ferrite (CoFe2O4) nanoparticles prepared via co-precipitation method were modified with tetraethoxysilane (TEOS) and additional funkcionalized with 3-mercaptopropyl trimethoxysilane (MPTMS) with purpose of cleaning waste water contaminated with heavy metal ions (Pb2+ and Hg2+). The influence of different experimental parameters (reaction time, reaction temperature and different TEOS:MPTMS ratios) on silica coating of CoFe2O4 nanoparticles and additional on thiol group was systematically studied. Silanes adsorb to the particle surface with alkoxy (Si(OR)4) groups at one end, while functional substituents (-SH) at the opposite end stay extended into surrounding aqueous medium and chemically interact with heavy metal contaminates. Thiol functionalized CoFe2O4 nanoparticles were characterized using IR spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy/high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (TEM/HRTEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDXS) and vibrating-sample magnetometer (VSM). The thiol functionalized CoFe2O4 nanoparticles were used for Pb2+ and Hg2+ions adsorption from aqueous media. Effect of treatment has been demonstrated using atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS).

A facile route to the synthesis of coated maghemite nanocomposites for hyperthermia applications
Gregor Ferk, Irena Ban, Janja Stergar, Darko Makovec, Anton Hamler, Zvonko Jagličić, Mihael Drofenik, 2012, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: CM-dextran-covered maghemite particles for applications in magnetic hyperthermia treatments were synthesized and their physical, magnetic and morphological properties were examined. Magnetic fluids were prepared and their heating proper ies in an alternating magnetic field were studied. The results reveal that the particle size and the thickness of the carboxy-methyl-dextran (CM-dextran) coatings have a decisive influence on the heating properties: specific absorption rate (SAR). The majority of the magnetic dissipation comes from the Neel relaxation, while the Brown contribution is small. A thermal steady state at the selected temperature (42 °C) can be achieved using synthesized maghemite particles with proper particle morphology and by controlling the magnetic field intensity or the frequency.

Aspects of titanium-implant surface modification at the micro and nano levels
Vojkan Lazić, Iva Milinković, Karlo Raić, Dragoslav Stamenković, Zoran Aleksić, Aleksandar Todorović, Rebeka Rudolf, 2012, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: The shape and chemical composition, as well as the macro- and microtopography, of an implant surface have been studied widely as the major factors that positively influence implant osseointegration. Titanium and titanium alloys have been used extensively over the past 20 years as biomedical materials in orthopedic and dental surgery because of their good mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, no cell toxicity, and very poor inflammatory response in peri-implant tissue, which confirms their high biocompatibility. Their favorable biological performance is attributed to a thin native oxide film that forms spontaneously on the titanium surface. It is well established that surface roughness plays an important role in implant fixation. Accordingly, some authors have indicated the existence of an optimal range of surface roughness. The titanium surface can be either chemically or physically modified, or both, in order to improve biomaterial-tissue integration. Different treatments are used to modify the titanium surface. Hydroxyapatite coatings, preceded or not by acid etching, are used to create a rough, potentially bioactive surface. Oxide blasting treatments, either with or without chemical etching, are used to develop roughsurfaces. Thick oxide films obtained by anodic or thermal oxidation have been used to accelerate the osseointegration process. The ideal microtopography of the surface is still unknown, however, because it is very difficult to associate surface properties with clinical results. As more accurate knowledge is required, several Ti surfaces have been analyzed and the endosseous implant surface modified on the micro level has been thoroughly studied. Additionally, the production of gold (Au) nanoparticles to be added to the micron-scale modified surface has been performed. In this respect, an appropriate overview of our results is given.

Synthesis of chromium-nickel nanoparticles prepared by a microemulsion method and mechanical milling
Irena Ban, Janja Stergar, Mihael Drofenik, Gregor Ferk, Darko Makovec, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: A chemical and a physical method have been applied for the preparation of chromium-nickel alloy nanoparticles. These particles were designed to be used for controlled magnetic hyperthermia applications. Microemulsions with $Ni^{2+}$ and $Cr^{3+}$ and/or $NaBH_4$ as precursors were prepared using the isooctane/CTAB, n-butanol/$H_2O$ system. The samples of $Cr_xNi_{1-x}$ nanoparticles with the desired composition were obtained after the reduction of their salts with $NaBH_4$ and afterwards heat treated in a TGA in a $N_2$ atmosphere at various temperatures. The $Cr_xNi_{1-x}$ materials were also prepared by mechanical milling. Utilizing a ball-to-powder mass ratio of 20 : 1 and selecting the proper alloy compositions we were able to obtain nanocrystalline $Cr_xNi_{1-x}$ particles. Thermal demagnetization in the vicinity of the Curie temperature of the nanoparticles was studied using a modified TGA-SDTA method. The alloyʼs phase composition, size and morphology were determined with XRD measurements and TEManalyses.

Synthesis of Au nanoparticles prepared with ultrasonic spray pyrolysis and hydrogen reduction
Srečko Stopić, Bernd Friedrich, Sergej Tomić, Miodrag Čolić, Monika Jenko, Rebeka Rudolf, Peter Majerič, Jelena Bogovic, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Golden nanoparticles of different sizes and shapes (spherical, cylindrical, triangular and round) where prepared during a synthesis of gold with ultrasonic spray pyrolysis (USP) and hydrogen reduction. The experimental investigations of the (USP) method were performed with an ultrasonic source of 0.8 MHz and 2.5 MHz, acting on the water solution of HAuCl4 forming aerosols with micron-sized and nanosized droplets. The results of the investigation show that the final shape and size of the Au particles depend on the characteristics of the solution and the frequency of the ultrasound. The second step of synthesizing the Au nanoparticles includes the subsequent thermal decomposition of the aerosol droplets in a hydrogen atmosphere between 260°C and 500°C. The investigations showed that the Au nanoparticles prepared in this way are smaller and more homogeneous.

Nanocomposite foams from iron oxide stabilized dicyclopentadiene high internal phase emulsions
Sebastijan Kovačič, Christian Slugovc, Gregor Ferk, Nadejda B. Matsko, 2014, strokovni članek

Opis: Nanocomposite polyHIPE foams with open-cellular morphology were obtained using nanoparticles ($γFe_2O_3/Fe_3O_4$), surfactant (Pluronic L121) or nanoparticle/surfactant stabilized dicyclopentadiene high internal phase emulsions (DCPD HIPEs). Upon curing, cavity sizes were found to vary drastically between 950 ± 360 µm down to 7 ±3 µm de- pending on the HIPE formulations. As-obtained nanocomposite polyHIPE foams were functionalized using elemental bromine in THF. Upon bromination the nanoparticles are moved from the cavities surfaces into the bulk phase of the polymer scaffold, which affects the inductive-heating capability of the magnetic nanocomposite foams decreasing it by the factor of 2.

Chemical binding of chitosan and chitosan nanoparticles onto oxidized cellulose
Olivera Šauperl, Mirjana Kostić, Jovana Milanovic, Lidija Fras, 2015, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: The aim of this study was to analyze binding of chitosan and chitosan nanoparticles onto cellulose via oxidized cellulose. The ability of chitosan and chitosan nanoparticles to be adsorbed onto surfaces was determined by the use of the XPS spectroscopy which provided information about chemical composition of the fiber surface. On the other hand, the gravimetric method was also used by which the amount of chitosan and chitosan nanoparticles bounded onto surface was calculated based on the difference in masses before and after functionalization. The most important was to study the influence of aldehyde groups on the stability of chitosan binding onto cellulose. Thus, desorption of chitosan/chitosan nanoparticles from the fiber surfaces was evaluated by the presence of total nitrogen (TN) in desorption bath as well as by polyelectrolyte titrations. Together with these two methods, desorption was evaluated also by gravimetric method, where the extent of desorption was evaluated on the basis of the differences in the masses of fibers before and after desorption. It is concluded that the chitosan and chitosan nanoparticles are more efficiently bounded onto oxidized cellulose in comparison with the non-oxidized (reference) ones. Despite the binding of the positively-charged amino groups with the negative groups of cellulose and consequently smaller amount of available/residual protonated amino groups that are responsible for bioactivity, such functionalized fibers are still specifically antimicrobial.
