Abstract [en]

One of the ultimate goals of nanocrystal self-assembly is to transform nanoscale building blocks into a material that displays enhanced properties relative to the sum of its parts. Herein, we demonstrate that 1D needle shaped assemblies composed of Fe3-delta O4 nanocubes display a significant augmentation of the magnetic susceptibility and dissipation as compared to OD and 2D systems. The performance of the nanocube needles is highlighted by a colossal anisotropy factor defined as the ratio of the parallel to the perpendicular magnetization components. We show that the origin of this effect cannot be ascribed to shape anisotropy in its classical sense; as such, it has no analogy in bulk magnetic materials. The temperature-dependent anisotropy factors of the in- and out-of-phase components of the magnetization have an extremely strong particle size dependence and reach values of 80 and 2500, respectively, for the largest nanocubes in this study. Aided by simulations, we ascribe the anisotropy of the magnetic susceptibility, and its strong particle-size dependence to a synergistic coupling between the dipolar interaction field and a net anisotropy field resulting from a partial texture in the 1D nanocube needles.

Abstract [en]

Silica (SiO2)-derived nanoadsorbents are a powerful and attractive tool for the extraction and separation of rare earth elements (REE) from many perspectives such as reusability, efficiency and minimum impact on the environment. In the present work, we investigated two different methods of adsorption down to the molecular level: (1) the mechanism of the coordination of different groups of REE (light, medium, heavy) with iminodiacetic acid (IDA) was revealed by exploiting models obtained from X-ray crystallography, explaining the selectivity of this type of ligand, and (2) the mechanism of the seeding of RE(OH)(3) initiated by SiO2-based nanoadsorbents was investigated by EXAFS, both individually and in combination with mechanism (1), showing the coexistence of both mechanisms. The REE loaded nanoadsorbents possess a high magnetic susceptibility. This property was studied by magnetometry to quantify the REE adsorption efficiency and compared with the values obtained from complexometry.

Abstract [en]

Antiphase boundaries (APBs) normally form as a consequence of the initial growth conditions in all spinel ferrite thin films. These boundaries result from the intrinsic nucleation and growth mechanism, and are observed as regions where the periodicity of the crystalline lattice is disrupted. The presence of APBs in epitaxial films of the inverse spinel Fe3O4 alters their electronic and magnetic properties due to strong antiferromagnetic (AF) interactions across these boundaries. We explore the effect of using in-plane in situ electric-field-assisted growth on the formation of APBs in heteroepitaxial Fe3O4(100)/MgO(100) thin films. The electric-field-assisted growth is found to reduce the AF interactions across APBs and, as a consequence, APB-free thin-film-like properties are obtained, which have been probed by electronic, magnetic, and structural characterization. The electric field plays a critical role in controlling the density of APBs during the nucleation process by providing an electrostatic force acting on adatoms and therefore changing their kinetics. This innovative technique can be employed to grow epitaxial spinel thin films with controlled AF interactions across APBs.

Abstract [en]

The ability to detect and analyze the state ofmagnetic labels with high sensitivity is of crucial importance fordeveloping magnetic biosensors. In this work, we demonstrate, forthefirst time, a ferromagnetic resonance (FMR) basedhomogeneous and volumetric biosensor for magnetic labeldetection. Two different isothermal amplification methods, i.e.,rolling circle amplification (RCA) and loop-mediated isothermalamplification (LAMP), are adopted and combined with a standardelectron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectrometer for FMRbiosensing. For the RCA-based FMR biosensor, binding of RCAproducts of a syntheticVibrio choleraetarget DNA sequence givesrise to the formation of aggregates of magnetic nanoparticles.Immobilization of nanoparticles within the aggregates leads to adecrease of the net anisotropy of the system and a concomitant increase of the resonancefield. A limit of detection of 1 pM isobtained with a linear detection range between 7.8 and 250 pM. For the LAMP-based sensing, a synthetic Zika virus targetoligonucleotide is amplified and detected in 20% serum samples. Immobilization of magnetic nanoparticles is induced by theircoprecipitation with Mg2P2O7(a byproduct of LAMP) and provides a detection sensitivity of 100 aM. The fast measurement,high sensitivity, and miniaturization potential of the proposed FMR biosensing technology makes it a promising candidate fordesigning future point-of-care devices.

Abstract [en]

DNA-assembled nanoparticle superstructures offer numerous bioresponsive properties that can be utilized for point-of-care diagnostics. Functional DNA sequences such as deoxyribozymes (DNAzymes) provide novel bioresponsive strategies and further extend the application of DNA-assembled nanoparticle superstructures. In this work, we describe a microRNA detection biosensor that combines magnetic nanoparticle (MNP) assemblies with DNAzyme-assisted target recycling. The DNA scaffolds of the MNP assemblies contain substrate sequences for DNAzyme and can form cleavage catalytic structures in the presence of target DNA or RNA sequences, leading to rupture of the scaffolds and disintegration of the MNP assemblies. The target sequences are preserved during the cleavage reaction and release into the suspension to trigger the digestion of multiple DNA scaffolds. The high local concentration of substrate sequences in the MNP assemblies reduces the diffusion time for target recycling. The concentration of released MNPs, which is proportional to the concentration of the target, can be quantified by a 405 nm laser-based optomagnetic sensor. For the detection of let-7b in 10% serum, after 1 h of isothermal reaction at 50 degrees C, we found a linear detection range between 10 pM and 100 nM with a limit of detection of 6 pM. For the quantification of DNA target in buffer solution, a limit of detection of 1.5 pM was achieved. Compared to protein enzyme-based microRNA detection methods, the proposed DNAzyme-based biosensor has an increased stability, a reduced cost and a possibility to be used in living cells, all of which are valuable features for biosensing applications.

Abstract [en]

We investigated, in depth, the interrelations among structure, magnetic properties, relaxation dynamics and magnetic hyperthermia performance of magnetic nanoflowers. The nanoflowers are about 39 nm in size, and consist of densely packed iron oxide cores. They display a remanent magnetization, which we explain by the exchange coupling between the cores, but we observe indications for internal spin disorder. By polarized small-angle neutron scattering, we unambiguously confirm that, on average, the nano flowers are preferentially magnetized along one direction. The extracted discrete relaxation time distribution of the colloidally dispersed particles indicates the presence of three distinct relaxation contributions. We can explain the two slower processes by Brownian and classical Neel relaxation, respectively. The additionally observed very fast relaxation contributions are attributed by us to the relaxation of disordered spins within the nanoflowers. Finally, we show that the intrinsic loss power (ILP, magnetic hyperthermia performance) of the nanoflowers measured in colloidal dispersion at high frequency is comparatively large and independent of the viscosity of the surrounding medium. This concurs with our assumption that the observed relaxation in the high frequency range is primarily a result of internal spin relaxation, and possibly connected to the disordered spins within the individual nanoflowers.

Abstract [en]

Extended exposure to sunlight or artificial UV sources is a major cause of serious skin and eye diseases such as cancer. There is thus a great need for convenient materials for the easy monitoring of UV doses. While organic photochromic molecules are tunable for responses under different wavelengths of UV radiation, they suffer from rather poor durability because the color changes involve drastic changes in molecular structure. Inorganic materials, on the other hand, are durable, but they have lacked tunability. Here, by combining computational and empirical data, we confirm the mechanism of coloration in the hackmanites, nature-based materials, and introduce a new technique called thermotenebrescence. With knowledge of the mechanism, we show that we can control and thus tune the energy of electronic states of synthetic hackmanites (Na,M)(8)Al6Si6O24(Cl,S)(2) so that their body color is sensitive to the solar UV index as well as UVA, UVB or UVC radiation levels. Finally, we demonstrate that it is possible to use images taken with an inexpensive cell phone to quantify the radiation dose or UV index. The hackmanite materials thus show great potential for use in portable healthcare both in everyday life and in laboratories.

Abstract [en]

The assembly of magnetic cores into regular structures may notably influence the properties displayed by a magnetic colloid. Here, key synthesis parameters driving the self-assembly process capable of organizing colloidal magnetic cores into highly regular and reproducible multi-core nanoparticles are determined. In addition, a self-consistent picture that explains the collective magnetic properties exhibited by these complex assemblies is achieved through structural, colloidal, and magnetic means. For this purpose, different strategies to obtain flower-shaped iron oxide assemblies in the size range 25-100 nm are examined. The routes are based on the partial oxidation of Fe(OH)(2), polyol-mediated synthesis or the reduction of iron acetylacetonate. The nanoparticles are functionalized either with dextran, citric acid, or alternatively embedded in polystyrene and their long-term stability is assessed. The core size is measured, calculated, and modeled using both structural and magnetic means, while the Debye model and multi-core extended model are used to study interparticle interactions. This is the first step toward standardized protocols of synthesis and characterization of flower-shaped nanoparticles.

Abstract [en]

We have studied the growth of ordered arrays by evaporation-induced self-assembly of iron oxide nanocubes with edge lengths of 6.8 and 10.1 nm using video microscopy (VM) and quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D). Ex situ electron diffraction of the ordered arrays demonstrates that the crystal axes of the nanocubes are coaligned and confirms that the ordered arrays are mesocrystals. Time-resolved video microscopy shows that growth of the highly ordered arrays at slow solvent evaporation is controlled by particle diffusion and can be described by a simple growth model. The growth of each mesocrystal depends only on the number of nanoparticles within the accessible region irrespective of the relative time of formation. The mass of the dried mesocrystals estimated from the analysis of the bandwidth-shift-to-frequency-shift ratio correlates well with the total mass of the oleate-coated nanoparticles in the deposited dispersion drop.
