Zetasizer Nano를 사용한 연구 논문 자료 TOP 10

Top 10 Publications using the Zetasizer Nano 





Light scattering techniques have enjoyed tremendous popularity in the academic and industrial research community over the last few decades. Due to advances in experimental techniques, ever more sensitive equipment is available to measure ever smaller sample quantities and ever smaller sizes of particle and molecule.  


The surge in interest in anything related to nano as well as the focus on biological molecules has certainly not hurt this interdisciplinary field of colloids spanning biophysics, biochemistry, structural biology, physical chemistry, chemical physics, chemical engineering, etc.  


Evidence of the vast reach of both dynamic and electrophoretic light scattering can be seen by the large number of publications which contain data taken with the Zetasizer Nano to support novel and ground-breaking discoveries, as well as refl ect the public interest in understanding safety and potential toxicity.  


Aside from the sheer number of these publications, it is noteworthy to explore how often publications that contain size and zeta potential data have been cross-referenced by other researchers, thus underscoring the signifi cance and trust in the Zetasizer Nano by the global scientific community. As of February 2012 the following Top Ten Publications have collectively been cited 2863 times.

Processable aqueous dispersions of graphene nanosheets  


Authors: D Li, MB Müller, S Gilje, RB Kaner, GG Wallace 


Citation: Nature Nanotechnology 2008, 3:101-105 


Abstract: These researchers from Wollongong, Australia, and Los Angeles, California, investigated the direct dispersion of hydrophobic graphite or graphene sheets in water without the assistance of dispersing agents. They report that chemically converted graphene sheets obtained from
graphite can readily form stable aqueous colloids through electrostatic stabilization. (Cited 1066 times) 



PEG-modifi ed gold nanorods with a stealth character for in vivo applications

Authors: Takuro Niidome, Masato Yamagata, Yuri Okamoto, Yasuyuki Akiyama, Hironobu Takahashi, Takahito Kawano, Yoshiki Katayama,Yasuro Niidome


Citation: Journal of Controlled Release 2006, 114(3):343–347 


Abstract: This group from Japan looked at potentially photo-controlled drug delivery systems. The strong cytotoxity of typically formulated CTAB-stabilized nanorods was addressed with a PEG modifi cation. The zeta potential of gold nanorods was found to change from -40mV before to essentially 0mV after pegylation. (Cited 262 times) 




Pulmonary toxicity study in rats with three forms of ultrafi ne-TiO2 particles: differential responses related to surface properties


Authors: DB Warheit, TR Webb, KL Reed, S Frerichs, CM Sayes 


Citation: Toxicology 2007, 230(1):90-104 


Abstract: This group from Dupont, Delaware, investigated in vivo pulmonary toxicity of titanium dioxide nanoparticles in rats. The particle sizes of different (Anatase/Rutile) TiO2 particles in aqueous suspension with 0.1% tetrasodium pyrophosphate ranged from ~100nm to ~400nm diameter. In PBS, the mean size increased to 2-3microns indicating strong agglomeration in this environment. (Cited 233 times) 



RNA Interference in Vitro and in Vivo Using a Chitosan/ siRNA Nanoparticle System 


Authors: KA Howard, UL Rahbek, X Liu, CK Damgaard, SZ Glud, MØ Andersen, MB Hovgaard, A Schmitz, JR Nyengaard, F Besenbacher, J Kjems 


Citation: Molecular Therapy 2006, 14:476-484 


Abstract: This group from Aarhus, Denmark, introduced a novel chitosanbased siRNA nanoparticle delivery system for RNA interference for both in vitro and in vivo delivery. The formation of interpolyelectrolyte complexes between siRNA duplexes (21-mers) and chitosan polymer into nanoparticles, 40 to 600 nm, was studied by photon correlation spectroscopy. The authors point out the potential use of these nanoparticles in RNA-mediated therapy of systemic and mucosal disease.
