Reduction of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure characterized clinically by HEADACHE which is maximal in an upright posture and occasionally by an abducens nerve palsy (see ABDUCENS NERVE DISEASES), neck stiffness, hearing loss (see DEAFNESS); NAUSEA; and other symptoms. This condition may be spontaneous or secondary to SPINAL PUNCTURE; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; DEHYDRATION; UREMIA; trauma (see also CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA); and other processes. Chronic hypotension may be associated with subdural hematomas (see HEMATOMA, SUBDURAL) or hygromas. (From Semin Neurol 1996 Mar;16(1):5-10; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp637-8)
Personal exposure to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica in California agriculture. (1/2325)AIMS: The aim of this study was to measure personal exposure to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica during various agricultural operations in California over a period of one year. METHODS: Ten farms were randomly selected in Yolo and Solano counties and workers were invited to wear personal sampling equipment to measure inhalable and respirable dust levels during various operations. The samples were analysed for endotoxin using the Limulus Amebocyte Lysate assay and crystalline silica content using X-ray diffraction. In total 142 inhalable samples and 144 respirable samples were collected. RESULTS: The measurements showed considerable difference in exposure levels between various operations, in particular for the inhalable fraction of the dust and the endotoxin. Machine harvesting of tree crops (Geometric mean (GM) = 45.1 mg/m3) and vegetables (GM = 7.9 mg/m3), and cleaning of poultry houses (GM = 6.7 mg/m3) showed the highest inhalable dust levels. Cleaning of poultry houses also showed the highest inhalable endotoxin levels (GM = 1861 EU/m3). Respirable dust levels were generally low, except for machine harvesting of tree crops (GM = 2.8 mg/m3) and vegetables (GM = 0.9 mg/m3). Respirable endotoxin levels were also low. For the inhalable dust fraction, levels were reduced considerably when an enclosed cabin was present. The percentage of crystalline silica was overall higher in the respirable dust samples than the inhalable dust samples. CONCLUSIONS: Considerable differences exist in personal exposure levels to dust, endotoxin and crystalline silica during various agricultural operations in California agriculture with some operations showing very high levels.

Purification and characterization of rat hippocampal CA3-dendritic spines associated with mossy fiber terminals. (2/2325)We report a revised and improved isolation procedure for CA3-dendritic spines, most of them still in association with mossy fiber terminals resulting in a 7.5-fold enrichment over nuclei and a 29-fold enrichment over myelin. Additionally, red blood cells, medullated fibers, mitochondria and small synaptosomes were significantly depleted. We show by high resolution electron microscopy that this subcellular fraction contains numerous dendritic spines with a rich ultrastructure, e.g. an intact spine apparatus, membranous organelles, free and membrane-bound polyribosomes, endocytic structures and mitochondria. This improved experimental system will allow us to study aspects of post-synaptic functions at the biochemical and molecular level. (+info)
Silica dust and lung cancer in the German stone, quarrying, and ceramics industries: results of a case-control study. (3/2325)BACKGROUND: A work force based case-control study of lung cancer was performed in non-silicotic subjects exposed to crystalline silica to investigate the association between silica dust and lung cancer excluding the influence of silicosis. METHODS: Two hundred and forty seven patients with lung cancer and 795 control subjects were enrolled, all of whom had been employed in the German stone, quarrying, or ceramics industries. Smoking was used as a matching criterion. Exposure to silica was quantified by measurements, if available, or otherwise by industrial hygienists. Several indices (peak, average and cumulative exposure) were used to analyse the relationship between the level of exposure and risk of lung cancer as odds ratios (OR). RESULTS: The risk of lung cancer is associated with the year of and age at first exposure to silica, duration of exposure, and latency. All odds ratios were adjusted for these factors. Considering the peak exposure, the OR for workers exposed to high levels (>/=0.15 mg/m3 respirable silica dust which is the current occupational threshold value for Germany) compared with those exposed to low levels (<0.15 mg/m3) was 0.85 (95% CI 0.58 to 1. 25). For the time weighted average exposure the OR was 0.91 (95% CI 0.57 to 1.46). The OR for the cumulative exposure was 1.02 (95% CI 0. 67 to 1.55). No increase in risk was evident with increasing exposure. CONCLUSIONS: This study shows no association between exposure to crystalline silica and lung cancer. The exclusion of subjects with silicosis may have led to dilution with respect to the level of exposure and therefore reduced the power to detect a small risk. Alternatively, the risk of getting lung cancer may be restricted to subjects with silicosis and is not directly linked to silica dust. (+info)
Biochemical evolution III: polymerization on organophilic silica-rich surfaces, crystal-chemical modeling, formation of first cells, and geological clues. (4/2325)Catalysis at organophilic silica-rich surfaces of zeolites and feldspars might generate replicating biopolymers from simple chemicals supplied by meteorites, volcanic gases, and other geological sources. Crystal-chemical modeling yielded packings for amino acids neatly encapsulated in 10-ring channels of the molecular sieve silicalite-ZSM-5-(mutinaite). Calculation of binding and activation energies for catalytic assembly into polymers is progressing for a chemical composition with one catalytic Al-OH site per 25 neutral Si tetrahedral sites. Internal channel intersections and external terminations provide special stereochemical features suitable for complex organic species. Polymer migration along nano/micrometer channels of ancient weathered feldspars, plus exploitation of phosphorus and various transition metals in entrapped apatite and other microminerals, might have generated complexes of replicating catalytic biomolecules, leading to primitive cellular organisms. The first cell wall might have been an internal mineral surface, from which the cell developed a protective biological cap emerging into a nutrient-rich "soup." Ultimately, the biological cap might have expanded into a complete cell wall, allowing mobility and colonization of energy-rich challenging environments. Electron microscopy of honeycomb channels inside weathered feldspars of the Shap granite (northwest England) has revealed modern bacteria, perhaps indicative of Archean ones. All known early rocks were metamorphosed too highly during geologic time to permit simple survival of large-pore zeolites, honeycombed feldspar, and encapsulated species. Possible microscopic clues to the proposed mineral adsorbents/catalysts are discussed for planning of systematic study of black cherts from weakly metamorphosed Archaean sediments. (+info)
Presence of Campylobacter and Salmonella in sand from bathing beaches. (5/2325)The purpose of this study was to determine the presence of thermophilic Campylobacter spp. and Salmonella spp. in sand from non-EEC standard and EEC standard designated beaches in different locations in the UK and to assess if potentially pathogenic strains were present. Campylobacter spp. were detected in 82/182 (45%) of sand samples and Salmonella spp. in 10/182 (6%). Campylobacter spp. were isolated from 46/92 (50%) of samples from non-EEC standard beaches and 36/90 (40%) from EEC standard beaches. The prevalence of Campylobacter spp. was greater in wet sand from both types of beaches but, surprisingly, more than 30% of samples from dry sand also contained these organisms. The major pathogenic species C. jejuni and C. coli were more prevalent in sand from non-EEC standard beaches. In contrast, C. lari and urease positive thermophilic campylobacters, which are associated with seagulls and other migratory birds, were more prevalent in sand from EEC standard beaches. Campylobacter isolates were further characterized by biotyping and serotyping, which confirmed that strains known to be of types associated with human infections were frequently found in sand on bathing beaches.

Immature germ cell separation using a modified discontinuous Percoll gradient technique in human semen. (6/2325)The difficulty of identifying immature germ cells in unstained, fresh semen has led most laboratories to use the broad definition 'round cells' to indicate cells other than spermatozoa, thus grouping together both leukocytes and immature germ cells. This is also the case in research andrology, where very little attention has been given to immature germ cells in the semen apart from some rare exceptions, such as the attempts to study meiosis. Here we report on the use of a discontinuous Percoll gradient method modified to enable the best separation possible of immature germ cells from the other cells found in the ejaculate, in order to obtain a cellular suspension free of spermatozoa. Our technique (intra-assay variation in duplicates < 10%) demonstrated a high immature germ cell concentration in gradient fractions with 30% to 45% Percoll with a small contamination (1.5-6%) of leukocytes, confirmed by May-Grunwald-Giemsa staining, immunofluorescence and cytofluorimetry. The concentrations of immature germ cells ranged from zero in obstructive azoospermia to 2.0 x 10(6)/ml in oligozoospermia and genital tract infection. The purified immature germ cell suspensions obtained can be useful for diagnostic and research purposes. (+info)
Comparative evaluation of two density gradient preparations for sperm separation for medically assisted conception. (7/2325)To evaluate and optimize the sperm separation efficiency of a novel silane-coated silica bead (Puresperm), serial studies were carried out to compare the various sperm parameters between: (i) three-layer (90%-70%-40%) Puresperm and three-layer (90%-70%-40%) conventional polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP)-coated silica bead (Percoll) gradients; (ii) three-layer (90%-70%-40%) and two-layer (90%-45%) Puresperm gradients and separately the same for Percoll; and (iii) large (3.0 ml) and small (0.75 ml) semen loading volumes on three-layer Puresperm gradients. Normozoospermic semen samples were treated and analysed in 12 replicates for each experiment. Manual evaluation of concentration, percentage motility, percentage vitality, percentage normal morphology; computer-assisted semen analysis evaluation of concentration, percentage motility, grade of motility, motion characteristics (curvilinear velocity, linearity, amplitude of lateral head velocity, beat cross frequency, percentage hyperactivation); and yields from the initial semen samples were compared. Percoll was found to be superior to Puresperm in concentration, percentage motility, percentage vitality and yields after three-layer density gradient centrifugation. There were no significant differences in sperm parameters between two- and three-layer Percoll gradients, but three-layer Puresperm gradients behaved significantly better than two-layer gradients. Large semen volume loads on three-layer Puresperm gradients resulted in greater sperm concentrations, percentage motility, percentage vitality and percentage normal morphology, but small semen volume loads produced greater yields of good-quality spermatozoa. In the light of Percoll being withdrawn from the shelf for the use of assisted reproduction because of the presence of PVP, three-layer Puresperm gradients with large semen loading volumes appear to be an attractive alternative for sperm separation in medically assisted conception.

A post-stishovite SiO2 polymorph in the meteorite Shergotty: implications for impact events. (8/2325)Transmission electron microscopy and electron diffraction show that the martian meteorite Shergotty, a shocked achondrite, contains a dense orthorhombic SiO2 phase similar to post-stishovite SiO2 with the alpha-PbO2 structure. If an SiO2 mineral exists in Earth's lower mantle, it would probably occur in a post-stishovite SiO2 structure. The presence of such a high-density polymorph in a shocked sample indicates that post-stishovite SiO2 structures may be used as indicators of extreme shock pressures. (+info)
Adsorption and release of biocides with mesoporous silica nanoparticles - DAF eResearch Archive (eRABBB)
In this proof-of-concept study, an agricultural biocide (imidacloprid) was effectively loaded into the mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) with different pore sizes, morphologies and mesoporous structures for termite control. This resulted in nanoparticles with a large surface area, tunable pore diameter and small particle size, which are ideal carriers for adsorption and controlled release of imidacloprid. The effect of pore size, surface area and mesoporous structure on uptake and release of imidacloprid was systematically studied. It was found that the adsorption amount and release profile of imidacloprid were dependent on the type of mesoporous structure and surface area of particles. Specifically, MCM-48 type mesoporous silica nanoparticles with a three dimensional (3D) open network structure and high surface area displayed the highest adsorption capacity compared to other types of silica nanoparticles. Release of imidacloprid from these nanoparticles was found to be controlled over 48 ...
Subclinical nephrotoxicity associated with occupational silica exposure among male Kenyan industrial workers
OBJECTIVE: To determine early signs of renal injury due to occupational silica exposure. DESIGN: Cross-sectional analytical research. SETTINGS: Kenyatta National Hospital for the referent population and Clayworks ceramics, bricks and tiles factory for the assessment of occupational silica exposure. SUBJECTS: Thirty three non-smoking silica-exposed male industrial workers and 38 non-smoking male referents participated in this study. RESULTS: Silica-exposed males excreted significantly increased levels of U.TP, U.Malb, U.ALP, U.y-GT and U.LDH compared to referent males. Among the silica-exposed males, U.Si negatively correlated significantly with age, U.TP correlated significantly to each of U.ALP and U.LDH. However, no correlation was observed between work duration and U.Si. CONCLUSION: The present study shows that there is associated glomerular and proximal tubular damage among silica exposed workers which is not duration related and is seemingly subclinical and nonprogressive and urinary silica ...

168g) Adsorption, Stabilization and Recovery of Polyphenolic Flavonoids By TiO2 Functionalized Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles ...
Flavonoids such as quercetin and its derivatives, which are normally isolated from plants, are antioxidants with medicinal and therapeutic applications for the treatment of cancer, cardiovascular disease and other conditions because they act against tumors, inflammation, and reactive oxygen species. At the same time, because they are photoactive compounds, flavonoids are highly susceptible to degradation and activity loss after extraction from biological sources. Therefore, methods are needed to retain the activity of flavonoids during physicochemical processes and storage. A possible material of interest for binding, protection and release of a wide variety of compounds are engineered silica particles. Porous silica nanoparticles are of interest for the recovery, and more recently, the delivery of therapeutics. Recent progress in metal oxide chemistry allows the synthesis of silica nanoparticles of controlled size, pore properties, and surface functionalization. Titania (TiO2) dispersed in ...

Imaging the Distribution of High Colloidal Stability Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles (MSNs) with PET and MRI
Biocompatible and high porosity mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) represent a significant advance in drug delivery applications, currently entering clinical validation. It will be necessary to track these drug vectors over time with medical imaging techniques. MRI could be used to monitor the blood signal enhancement, and therefore to validate blood retention of i.v.-injected MSNs. On the other hand, high-sensitivity PET would allow the quantitative and dynamic monitoring of nanoparticle biodistribution, a promising application of new PET/MRI systems. Here are for the first time presented dynamic MSN biodistribution data with MRI and PET. A recently developed high colloidal stability MSN system showing an intricate 3-D porous network, narrow particle size distribution (140 nm mean diam.) and very high porosity (up to 70% vol.), was grafted with DTPA enabling efficient chelation of 64Cu2+ and Gd3+. An efficient size-exclusion chromatography procedure was developed for rapid purification of
Hyaluronic acid modified mesoporous silica nanoparticles for targeted by Meihua Yu, Siddharth Jambhrunkar et al.
In this paper, a targeted drug delivery system has been developed based on hyaluronic acid (HA) modified mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs). HA-MSNs possess a specific affinity to CD44 over-expressed on the surface of a specific cancer cell line, HCT-116 (human colon cancer cells). The cellular uptake performance of fluorescently labelled MSNs with and without HA modification has been evaluated by confocal microscopy and fluorescence-activated cell sorter (FACS) analysis. Compared to bare MSNs, HA-MSNs exhibit a higher cellular uptake via HA receptor mediated endocytosis. An anticancer drug, doxorubicin hydrochloride (Dox), has been loaded into MSNs and HA-MSNs as drug delivery vehicles. Dox loaded HA-MSNs show greater cytotoxicity to HCT-116 cells than free Dox and Dox-MSNs due to the enhanced cell internalization behavior of HA-MSNs. It is expected that HA-MSNs have a great potential in targeted delivery of anticancer drugs to CD44 over-expressing tumors.

Porous silica spheres in macroporous structures and on nanofibres | Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London A...
In recent years, the studies of nanoparticles and nanostructures have attracted increasing interests worldwide. Porous nanospheres can potentially provide the advantages of both nanoparticles and high surface areas from micro-/mesopores in the nanoparticles. Porous silica spheres have been widely investigated owing to their broad applications in areas such as catalysis, controlled release and separation science. Pores in silica could be formed by using organic templates such as surfactants (Grün et al. 1991; Kresge et al. 1992), polymers (Zhao et al. 1998) and pre-formed structures (Meyers et al. 2002; Walsh et al. 2003; Zhang et al. 2004). Depending on the types of templates used, porous silica with micropores (2 nm or less), mesopores (2-50 nm) or macropores (50 nm or more) could be produced. Ordered mesoporous silica materials were normally prepared using ionic surfactants or block copolymers as directing agents (Kresge et al. 1992; Zhao et al. 1998). Under acidic conditions, porous silica ...

The Effects of Crystalline Silica on Workers | The EI Group
Silica is one of the most abundant and complex naturally occurring minerals and the main component of sand. Quartz is the stable crystal form of silica, while tridymite and cristobalite are less stable crystalline forms. Crystalline silica becomes the biggest threat when it is pulverized or changed into very small particles that can become airborne and inhaled. While respirable crystalline silica is an exposure risk for the general population, it is the biggest threat to workers that are exposed to it in their occupational and industrial settings. An estimated 2.3 million workers in the United States are exposed to silica with the greatest exposure being in the construction field.. Throughout history, occupational silica exposures have been mainly linked to with the quarrying of stone, making of stone products, stone cutting as well as masonry. Today, exposures can also occur in the manufacturing of asphalt, glass, pottery, brick, tile, concrete, mortar, plaster and many other construction ...

Silica exposure and work-relatedness evaluation for occupational cancer in Korea | Annals of Occupational and Environmental...
Silica, or silicon dioxide (SiO2), is a group IV metal oxide, which naturally occurs in both crystalline and amorphous forms. The most abundant form of silica is α-quartz, and the term quartz is often used in place of the general term crystalline silica. Crystalline silica has been classified as a definite carcinogen (Group 1) causing lung cancer by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) . In some studies, kidney, stomach, and esophageal cancers have also been reported to be associated with crystalline silica [2, 3]. In Korea, mining, stone cutting, construction, and refining are known to be hazardous industries with respect to crystalline silica exposure, and many silicosis cases have occurred among these industries . There has been no systematic survey on the number of workers exposed to crystalline silica in Korea, but in one survey in 2005, the number of workers handling crystalline silica was estimated to be about 48,000, while the number of crystalline silica ...

Self-Assembly of Nanoporous Silica Particles for Tagging and Sensing Applications - Tufts Digital Library
Abstract: Meso(nano)porous silica particles are of broad interest for many photonic applications, filtration, drug delivery, catalysis. Through a self-assembly process, one can achieve silica particles spanning in size from microns to tens of nanometer. In the early stage of self-assembly it is observed that 20-50 nm seed particles are formed with hexagonally packed open cylindrical nanochannels. ... read moreHowever, what is unknown is how these seed-like particles aggregate and self-align their pores to form final multi-micron particles with self-sealed channels extended over the entire particle.. In the course of this research, we examined the assembly mechanism of mesoporous multi-micron size silica particles with long cylindrical pores of 4-5 nm in diameter.We further showed that the observed alignment of channels was thermodynamically favored by a decrease in the Gibbs free energy of the particles. Besides a fundamental understanding of the mechanism of morphogenesis and pore formation, we ...
Intestinal absorption and biological effects of orally administered amorphous silica particles | Nanoscale Research Letters |...
In the present study, we attempted to quantify the absorption of silica particles by using ICP-OES to measure the silicon content in the liver and blood after 28-day oral exposure. However, we did not detect the silicon content in the biological tissue with this analytical protocol (data not shown; detection limit of the protocol, 0.1 μg). ICP-OES protocols are regarded to be suitable for measuring silica; however, our attempt to measure ultratrace levels of the silicon content derived from silica particles may have been hindered by interference from nitrogen present in the air. Other groups have also been unable to determine the level of the silicon content derived from with ICP-OES after oral exposure because of interference . We therefore tried to measure the absorption of silica particles through the intestine by means of a combination of the everted gut sac method and ICP-OES. The advantages of this model are that there is a relatively large surface area available for absorption and ...

OSHA Publishes Proposed Rule on Exposure to Crystalline Silica
The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) published its proposed rule for occupational exposure to respirable crystalline silica in the Federal Register yesterday. The proposed rule includes two standards, one for general industry and maritime and the other specifically for construction. The construction standard would reduce the current permissible exposure limit (PEL) of respirable crystalline silica which was established in 1971 from 250 micrograms per cubic meter averaged over an 8-hour day down to 50 micrograms per cubic meter. OSHA claims the proposed rule would save the lives of 560 construction workers and prevent 1,080 cases of silicosis a year. Its estimated that approximately 1.85 million construction workers are exposed to respirable crystalline silica at their workplace.. Silica, also known as silicon dioxide, is a chemical compound that occurs in nature as a basic component of sand and quartz. Silica is found in a number of building materials including shingles, ...

449ca) Preparation of Amine Modified Bimodal Mesoporous Silica Particles for CO2 Separation | AIChE
Mesoporous silica has been extensively studied for many applications such as CO2 adsorbents, drug delivery, catalysis, and so on. Among them, bimodal mesoporous silica (BMS), which had two different sizes of mesopores, have drawn much attention recently because it exhibited unique diffusion properties in the pores. For this reason, when BMS was modified to have affinity with CO2, it was expected that both of high CO2 adsorption capacity and fast adsorption rate would be achieved by small and large pores, respectively. Therefore, we prepared various kinds of amine modified BMS, and the effects of pore structure of BMS samples and the type of introduced amine on CO2 adsorption/desorption properties were examined in this study. In the experiments, BMS were prepared by co-condensation of two different silica precursors. Tetraethylorthosilicate (TEOS) and triblock copolymer Purulonic 123 (P123) were used as silica precursors and templating agent, respectively. Polymethylhydrosiloxane (PMHS) was not ...
OSA | Thermal and Kerr nonlinear properties of plasma-deposited silicon nitride/silicon dioxide waveguides
We introduce and present experimental evaluations of loss and nonlinear optical response in a waveguide and an optical resonator, both implemented with a silicon nitride/silicon dioxide material platform prepared by plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition with dual frequency reactors that significantly reduce the stress and the consequent loss of the devices. We measure a relatively small loss of ~4dB/cm in the waveguides. The fabricated ring resonators in add-drop and all-pass arrangements demonstrate quality factors of Q=12,900 and 35,600. The resonators are used to measure both the thermal and ultrafast Kerr nonlinearities. The measured thermal nonlinearity is larger than expected, which is attributed to slower heat dissipation in the plasma-deposited silicon dioxide film. The n 2 for silicon nitride that is unknown in the literature is measured, for the first time, as 2.4×10-15cm2/W, which is 10 times larger than that for silicon dioxide.. ©2008 Optical Society of America.

Mesoporous silica particles potentiate antigen-specific T-cell responses
Aim: To study the adjuvant effect of mesoporous silica particles and their capability of modifying an already existing allergic Th2-like immune response. Materials & methods: The adjuvant effect of Santa Barbara Amorphous-15 (SBA-15) mesoporous silica particles was studied in an antigen-specific ovalbumin (OVA) system in vitro and in vivo. The capacity of the OVA-loaded SBA-15 particles (SBA-15-OVA) to modify an existing immune response was assessed in a murine allergy model. Results: SBA-15-OVA induced significantly stronger OVA-specific splenocyte proliferation compared with OVA alone. Significantly higher IFN-gamma production was observed in ex vivo OVA-stimulated splenocytes from SBA-15-OVA-immunized mice compared with mice injected with only SBA-15 or OVA. Treatment of OVA-sensitized mice with SBA-15-OVA modified the immune response with significantly lower serum levels of OVA-specific IgE and higher IgG levels compared with the alum-OVA-treated group. Conclusion: The results are promising ...
A fluorescence spectroscopy assay for real-time monitoring of enzyme immobilization into mesoporous silica particles
Mesoporous silica particles are used as support material for immobilization of enzymes. Here we investigated a fluorescence-based assay for real-time monitoring of the immobilization of lipase, bovine serum albumin, and glucose oxidase into micrometer-sized mesoporous silica particles. The proteins are labeled with the dye epicocconone, and the interaction with the particles is observed as an increase in emission intensity of the protein-dye conjugates that can be quantified if correcting for a comparatively slow photobleaching. The immobilization occurs in tens of minutes to hours depending on particle concentration and type of protein. In the limit of excess particles over proteins, the formation of the particle-protein complexes can be described by a single exponential growth for all three investigated proteins, and the fitted pseudo-first-order rate constant increases linearly with particle concentration for each protein type. The derived second-order rate constant k varies with the protein
Molecules | Free Full-Text | Inkjet Printing of Drug-Loaded Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles-A Platform for Drug Development
Mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) have shown great potential in improving drug delivery of poorly water soluble (BCS class II, IV) and poorly permeable (BCS class III, IV) drugs, as well as facilitating successful delivery of unstable compounds. The nanoparticle technology would allow improved treatment by reducing adverse reactions of currently approved drugs and possibly reintroducing previously discarded compounds from the drug development pipeline. This study aims to highlight important aspects in mesoporous silica nanoparticle (MSN) ink formulation development for digital inkjet printing technology and to advice on choosing a method (2D/3D) for nanoparticle print deposit characterization. The results show that both unfunctionalized and polyethyeleneimine (PEI) surface functionalized MSNs, as well as drug-free and drug-loaded MSN-PEI suspensions, can be successfully inkjet-printed. Furthermore, the model BCS class IV drug remained incorporated in the MSNs and the suspension remained physically

The research demonstrates the first example of incorporating insoluble lanthanoid coordination compounds into silica microspheres. The work explored the controlled synthesis of silica microspheres and the reaction conditions under which lanthanoid complexes can be incorporated into the microspheres. The environment of the coordinated lanthanoid ions before and after incorporation into silica microspheres was probed using spectroflurophotometry. The surface morphology of silica microspheres was characterized using atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The work explored novel syntheses of lanthanoid monoporphyrinates. The work also explored the incorporation of porphyrin macrocycles into silica microspheres.
Structure and Function of Adsorbed Hemoglobin on Silica Nanoparticles: Relationship between the Adsorption Process and the...
The connection between the mechanisms of protein adsorption on nanoparticles and the structural and functional properties of the adsorbed protein often remains unclear. We investigate porcine hemoglobin adsorption on silica nanoparticles and we analyze the structural and functional modifications of adsorbed hemoglobin by UV-vis spectrophotometry, circular dichroism and oxygen binding measurement. The structural analysis of adsorbed hemoglobin on silica nanoparticles reveals a significant loss of secondary structure and a preservation of the heme electronic structure. However, adsorbed hemoglobin retains its quaternary structure and exhibits an enhanced oxygen affinity with cooperative binding. Moreover, the structural and functional modifications are fully reversible after complete desorption from silica nanoparticles at pH 8.7. The tunable adsorption and desorption of hemoglobin on SNPs with pH change, and the full control of hemoglobin activity by pH, temperature and the addition of inorganic

Silicon Dioxide Nanoparticles Can Exert Cytotoxic Effects on Neural Cells
The health risk and cytotoxic effects of nanoparticles are almost unknown. Consequently, we have launched an interdisciplinary research program to systematically investigate the toxicity of nanoparticles. An initial observation prompted us to hypothesize that SiO2 nanoparticles can traverse the plasma membranes of cells through the endocytosis mechanism and thereby exert their cellular and cytotoxic effects on cells. To test this hypothesis, we investigated the effects of silicon dioxide nanoparticles on two human brain tumor cell lines (SK-N-SH, a neuroblastoma line and U87, an astrocytoma line) employing light microscopy, lactate dehydrogenase release into the culture medium (an indicator of cell damage and necrosis) and MTT assay (an indicator of cell survival). Our results indicate exposure to SiO2 nanoparticles led to cytotoxic damage (as indicated by LDH release) and decreases in cell survival (as determined by the MTT assay) in SK-N-SH and U87 cells in a dose-related manner, their effect being
Review of the Health Effects associated with Exposure to Respirable Crystalline Silica in Coal Dust | Coal Services
a) What are the adverse health effects from exposure to crystalline silica in respirable coal dust and are they different in any way to those from exposure to pure crystalline silica?. b) Is the current NSW exposure standard of 0.15 mg/m3 respirable silica sufficient to prevent the onset of any disease outcome identified in (a)?.

Where appropriate, personal contacts were initiated with persons identified as having expertise in the area.. There is considerable evidence to indicate that exposure to pure crystalline silica will result in a number of disease outcomes including silicosis, lung cancer, tuberculosis, chronic airways disease, auto-immune diseases and nephrotoxicity.. Of these disease outcomes, silicosis and lung cancer were considered to be the most relevant to this study.. ...
The Power of Rust and Sand at the Nanoscale: Iron Oxide and Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles for Biomedical Applications
Due to their high surface area and size-dependent properties, nanoparticles have seen use as biomedical devices in the past several decades. Magnetic nanoparticles are of particular interest as their properties allow for a variety of uses including separations, targeting, imaging, and therapy. The biological milieu is not a pristine environment, however. The complex medium presents many challenges for particle stability and reproducible performance. It even makes fundamental particle characterization more difficult. In this thesis, magnetic iron oxide nanoparticles are investigated as biomedical devices which provide diagnosis/imaging and therapy (theranostics). Innovative methods for characterizing these particles and observing their behavior over time in biologically relevant environments are also presented. Overall, this thesis aims to make the important point that magnetic nanoparticles are not stagnant objects but are in fact dynamic systems capable of vast changes upon exposure to in vitro ...

Silica Aerogel as Super Thermal and Acoustic Insulation Materials
Silica aerogels are light weight, nanostructured, and highly porous materials with an open pore structure. Due to their excellent characteristics, such as extremely low thermal conductivity, low density and high porosity, the silica aerogels become promising potential adsorbents, catalysts, thermal insulation, and acoustic absorption materials for environmental purposes. This paper presents the synthesis of a highly flexible polymer modified silica aerogel with the use of a cellulose-methyltriethoxysilane (MTES) precursor in a two-step acid-base catalyzed sol-gel process. The physical properties of the resulting aerogels were characterized by thermogravimetry, scanning electron microscopy, nitrogen adsorption-desorption, contact angle, thermal conductivity measurements, compression testing and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. The fabricated aerogel exhibited high flexibility with a Youngs modulus of compression of 0.33 MPa and the density of 0.132 g/cm3. They were hydrophobic in nature and had

0029] Silicic acid sols are colloidal solutions of amorphic silica in water which are also called silicon dioxide sols, but mostly are called just silica sols. The silica in that case is present in the form of spherical and surface-hydroxilated particles. The particle diameter of the colloid particles as a rule is 1 to 200 nm, in which case the specific BET-surface (determined in accordance with the method of G. N. Sears, Analytical Chemistry Vol. 28, No. 12, 1981-1983, December 1956) which correlates with the particle size is 15 to 2,000 m2/g. Assuming that silica sols are presented as spherical primary particles and have a density of 2.2 g/cm3, a factor of 2,750 results. This factor divided by the specific surface gives the particle size in nm. (To determine the factor. see Ralph K. Iler, The Chemistry of Silica, John Wiley & Sons New York 1979 p. 465 ff.).

Crystalline Silica - A Dangerous Dust | MSDSonline
In addition to putting a guidance document together, OSHA also initiated a National Emphasis Program (NEP) for crystalline silica in early 2008, Directive CPL 03-00-007, which builds on a 1996 Special Emphasis Program (SEP) for Silicosis. According to OSHA, the purpose of the NEP is to identify and reduce or eliminate the health hazards associated with occupational exposure to crystalline silica.. Regarding compliance, if your company uses materials containing 0.1 percent or more crystalline silica, then you are covered by OSHAs Hazard Communication Standard (HCS, HazCom, 29 CFR 1910) and must provide: material safety data sheets, proper warning labels and employee training.. You must also adhere to the permissible exposure limit (PEL), 29 CFR 1926.55, 1910.1000, that OSHA has set for this hazardous compound. The PEL represents the maximum amount of crystalline silica that employees can be exposed to during an eight-hour work shift. The limit varies by the composition of the airborne dust ...

What is Silicosis? - Glass Blast
Silicosis is the chronic fibrosing disease of the lungs produced by the prolonged and extensive exposure to free crystalline silica dust. When workers inhale crystalline silica (dust), the lung tissue reacts by developing fibrotic nodules and scarring around the trapped silica particles. This fibrotic condition of the lung is called silicosis. If the nodules grow too large, breathing becomes difficult and death may result. Silicosis victims are also at high risk of developing active tuberculosis. More than one million U.S. workers are exposed to crystalline silica, and each year hundreds of these workers die from silicosis. Silicosis treatment is very limited as there is no cure for the disease, but it is 100 percent preventable if employers, workers, and health professionals work together to reduce exposures.. Pneumoconiosis is the general term for lung disease caused by inhalation of mineral dust. Silicosis is a fibrosing lung disease caused by inhalation of dust containing crystalline silica ...

Effect of silica particle size on the formation of calcium silicate hydrate [C-S-H] using thermal analysis - Strathprints
Calcium silicate hydrate (C-S-H) is made by mixing calcium hydroxide (portlandite), silica and water at two calcium oxide to silica (C/S) ratios, using nano-silica and silica fume. We investigate how silica particle size influences the rate and extent of formation of C-S-H at room temperature by isothermal calorimetry, thermal analysis, Raman spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. Rate of reaction increases as silica particle size decreases, and is five times greater with nano-silica than with silica fume. Final composition depends only on initial C/S ratio. Compositions at 28 days are estimated from thermogravimetric and X-ray diffraction data. There is a weak maximum in the reaction rate of nanosilica pastes about 20-30 h after mixing. The overall kinetics is well described by a simple exponential (first-order) reaction model. The early-time reaction rate around the rate maximum is described by an Avrami model.. ...

Here we report on the electrochemical removal of segregated silicon dioxide impurities from Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (YSZ) surfaces at elevated temperatures studied under Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) conditions. YSZ single crystals were heated in vacuum by an applied 18kHz a.c. voltage using the ionic conductivity of YSZ. The crystals were annealed in vacuum and atmospheres of water or oxygen from 10−5 mbar to 100mbar in the temperature range of 1100°C to 1275°C. The surface was after annealing analyzed by X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) without exposing the crystal to atmosphere between annealing and XPS analysis. Silicon enrichment of the surface was only observed at oxygen and water vapor partial pressures above 25mbar and 10mbar, respectively. No silicon was observed on crystals annealed in vacuum and at oxygen and water vapor partial pressures below 10mbar. The YSZ seems to get partially electrochemically reduced by the a.c. voltage when no oxidation substances are present. The ...

Image Sensors World: October 2013
A photon with a vacuum wavelength of 250 nm has energy of approximately 5 eV. The bandgap of silicon dioxide is about 10 eV. Although it would appear that such wavelength photons cannot be absorbed by silicon dioxide, silicon dioxide as grown on a silicon surface must have some dangling bonds at the interface with the silicon because the silicon dioxide structure cannot perfectly match that of the silicon crystal. Furthermore, because the single dioxide is amorphous, there are likely also some dangling bonds within the material. In practice, there will be a non-negligible density of defects and impurities within the oxide, as well as at the interface to underlying semiconductor, that can absorb photons with deep UV wavelengths, particularly those shorter than about 250 nm in wavelength. Furthermore, under high radiation flux density, two high-energy photons may arrive near the same location within a very short time interval (nanoseconds or picoseconds), which can lead to electrons being excited ...

Latent damage investigation on lateral nonuniform charge generation and stress-induced leakage current in silicon dioxide...
This paper reports on positive lateral nonuniform (LNU) charge generation in silicon dioxide, and its relationship to transient or ac stress-induced leakage current (SILC), for MOS capacitor devices subjected to high-field current impulse stressing using a transmission line pulsing technique. The formation of LNU charge was attributed to the localized injection of avalanche hot carriers from the silicon substrate together with the accompanying impact ionization within the oxide. The short stress pulse duration was identified as an important factor for the generation of LNU charge as a longer duration stress pulse or dc stressing gives rise to more uniform charge trapping. A model, consisting of several similar area and equivalent MOS capacitors connected in parallel, was used to explain the effect of LNU charge generation on the high-frequency capacitance-voltage curves. Electrical annealing results indicate that the positive LNU charge traps are located close to the silicon-oxide interface. The ...
Reaction Mechanisms and Rate Limitations in Dry Etching of Silicon Dioxide with Anhydrous Hydrogen Fluoride
A novel dry etching process for silicon dioxide has been developed. This process, carried out at ambient temperature and pressure, uses anhydrous hydrogen fluoride, water vapor in a nitrogen carrier, and a unique processing sequence to achieve etch rates of about 200A/second, with 5 percent or better uniformity.. The overall reaction is a complicated sequence of surface hydration and surface fluorination by adsorption, reaction, and product desorption. This paper presents two proposed reaction mechanisms and describes how experimental data from a laminar flow reactor were used to evaluate the mechanisms. ...

Comparison of non-crystalline silica nanoparticles in IL-1β release from macrophages | Particle and Fibre Toxicology | Full Text
Respirable crystalline silica (silicon dioxide; SiO2, quartz) particles are known to induce chronic inflammation and lung disease upon long-term inhalation, whereas non-crystalline (amorphous) SiO2 particles in the submicrometre range are regarded as less harmful. Several reports have demonstrated that crystalline, but also non-crystalline silica particles induce IL-1β release from macrophages via the NALP3-inflammasome complex (caspase-1, ASC and NALP3) in the presence of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from bacteria. Our aim was to study the potential of different non-crystalline SiO2 particles from the nano- to submicro-sized range to activate IL-1β responses in LPS-primed RAW264.7 macrophages and primary rat lung macrophages. The role of the NALP3-inflammasome and up-stream mechanisms was further explored in RAW264.7 cells. In the present study, we have shown that 6 h exposure to non-crystalline SiO2 particles in nano- (SiNPs, 5-20 nm, 50 nm) and submicro-sizes induced strong IL-1β responses in LPS
UiS Brage: Adsorption of silica nanoparticles in chalk and sandstone and it effect of fluid/rock interactions.
This study addresses the adsorption of Silica nanoparticles (NPs) and its effect on fluid/rock interactions in chalk and sandstone reservoirs. The first part of this thesis addresses the kinetic adsorption behaviour of silica NPs dispersed in three types of waters: deionized water (DIW), low salinity water (LSW) and synthetic seawater (SSW) on calcite and quartz which are the major mineral constituents of chalk and sandstone reservoirs. Kinetic adsorption of NPs was addressed by running a set of static adsorption experiments with increasing mixing time between the mineral and silica nanofluid prepared at three different salinities. Pseudo-first order and Pseudo-second order kinetic models were used to describe to kinetic behaviour of silica NPs on calcite and quartz. Intraparticle diffusion model is used to describe the adsorption mechanism of silica NPs on calcite and quartz. Ion and pH analysis was performed to study the fluid/rock interactions with and without NPs. The second part of the ...

Protein characterization using SEC: three webinar takeaways
There are mainly two types of SEC resins available: silica-based resins and agarose-based resins. Properties of silica-based and agarose-based resins are listed in Table 1. The main difference, which has a practical impact, is that agarose-based resins have much higher pH stability and can thus be cleaned under harsh conditions. Standard protocols for cleaning of agarose-based resins include NaOH. Silica-based resins, on the other hand, decompose at high pH, preventing the use of NaOH in cleaning of these resins. In addition, while agarose has little, if any, tendency to adsorb proteins, silica-based resins might contain residual silanols that can adsorb proteins. Traditionally, agarose-based resins are more commonly used in preparative SEC, while silica-based resins are more used in analytical SEC applications. Today, however, there is a new generation of agarose-based resins available, with smaller, more rigid beads. These resins offer a good complement to the silica-based resins for protein ...
Asbestos Abatement and Mold Removal: July 2009
Silica exposure remains a serious threat to nearly 2 million U.S. workers, including more than 100,000 workers in high risk jobs such as abrasive blasting, foundry work, stonecutting, rock drilling, quarry work and tunneling. The seriousness of the health hazards associated with silica exposure is demonstrated by the fatalities and disabling illnesses that continue to occur in sandblasters and rockdrillers. Crystalline silica has been classified as a human lung carcinogen. Additionally, breathing crystalline silica dust can cause silicosis, which in severe cases can be disabling, or even fatal. The respirable silica dust enters the lungs and causes the formation of scar tissue, thus reducing the lungs ability to take in oxygen. There is no cure for silicosis. Since silicosis affects lung function, it makes one more susceptible to lung infections like tuberculosis. In addition, smoking causes lung damage and adds to the damage caused by breathing silica dust ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Particle size effect on enantioselective hydrogenation of methylacetoacetate over silica-supported nickel catalyst. AU - Fu, L.. AU - Kung, H. H.. AU - Sachtler, W. M.H.. N1 - Funding Information: This work was supported by the National Science Foundation, under grand No. CHE-8216664.. PY - 1987/9. Y1 - 1987/9. N2 - The effect of metal particle size on the enantioselective hydrogenation of methylacetoacetate (MAA) to methyl 3-hydroxybutyrate (MHB) in the gas and the liquid phases was studied over Ni/SiO2 modified with R,R tartaric acid. The Ni particle size of the catalyst at controlled Ni load was increased from 3.3 nm up to about 11 nm by Ostwald ripening, due to the formation and decomposition of gaseous Ni(CO)4. The experimental data showed no significant particle size effect on enantioselectivity within this size range. Atomic absorption analysis of the solution after modification showed that up to 50% of the Ni in the catalyst can be leached out during modification under ...

Acid-base interaction of probes at silica surface. Microcalorimetry and adsorption - CONVERIS Research Information System -...
The interaction of four benzyl derivatives with silica surface sites in anhydrous cyclohexane is investigated. The strength and extent of adsorption is determined from the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The enthalpy of immersion is determined microcalorimetrically, which is recalculated to the enthalpy of adsorption. The aim is to distinguish between the Lewis-type (electron exchange) and Brønsted-type (proton exchange) of interaction by selecting methanol-acetone and acetic acid-methylamine, respectively as acid-base substituent in benzene. Moreover, the experiments were performed in anhydrous cyclohexane in order to screen out hydrocarbon interactions from the energy balance. The monomolecular adsorption is also distinguished from the bulk wetting of solids. The results are evaluated in terms of possible proton exchange in anhydrous media. ...
