  • The influence of electronic polarizability of components on the electric
           field of an ionic micelle according to molecular simulation data
    • Authors: E. N. Brodskaya; A. A. Vanin
      Pages: 429 - 434
      Abstract: Abstract Molecular dynamics simulation of a cationic micelle having a rigid hydrophobic core and mobile cationic head groups has been performed taking into account the electronic contribution into solution polarization. As compared with an analogous micelle previously considered with no regard to the polarization effects, the latter manifest themselves as a weaker structuring of micelle crown and greater concentrating of counterions in it. Analysis of the local electric potential has indicated that the discrepancy between the data of the continual and atomistic descriptions of water remains preserved. Thus, agreement between the theory and numerical experiment cannot be achieved when describing the local electric potential with no allowance for the local character of polarization.

  • Optimization of photothermal methods for laser hyperthermia of malignant
           cells using bioconjugates of gold nanoparticles
    • Authors: V. S. Gerasimov; A. E. Ershov; S. V. Karpov; S. P. Polyutov; P. N. Semina
      Pages: 435 - 442
      Abstract: Abstract Selective action of laser radiation on membranes of malignant cells has been studied in different regimes using conjugates of gold nanoparticles with oligonucleotides by the example of DNA aptamers. Under the conditions of a contact between a bioconjugate and a cell surface and the development of substantial and rapidly relaxing temperature gradients near a nanoparticle, the membranes of malignant cells alone are efficiently damaged due to the local hyperthermia of a cellular membrane. It has been shown that employment of pulsed instead of continuous wave laser radiation provides the localization of the damaging action, which does not involve healthy cells.

  • Kinetics of mechanochemical dissolution of chromium in iron
    • Authors: E. P. Yelsukov; A. L. Ul’yanov; D. A. Kolodkin; V. E. Porsev
      Pages: 443 - 447
      Abstract: Abstract The kinetics of solid Fe–Cr solution formation has been studied during mechanical alloying of Fe and Cr powders taken in an atomic ratio of 80: 20. X-ray diffraction and Mössbauer spectroscopy data have been analyzed within the framework of the energetic approach. It has been established that, in this system, reaction product yield N is related to mechanical energy dose D and specific surface area S of Fe nanograin boundaries in an ideal manner: N ~ D 2 at S ~ D and N ~ D at S = const.

  • Studies about the influence of self-organization of colloidal magnetic
           nanoparticles on the magnetic Néel relaxation time
    • Authors: Matteo Cacciola; Mihaela Osaci
      Pages: 448 - 458
      Abstract: Abstract The monodomain magnetic nanoparticle-based colloids are mainly used in biomedical applications. In this type of colloids, there is a tendency of agglomeration even in the absence of external magnetic field. So, the Néel magnetic relaxation time of the system is affected by that tendency. In this paper, we propose a model to study how the nanoparticle tendency to agglomerate in the nanofluid affects the Néel relaxation time of the system. For simulating the self-organization of colloidal nanoparticles, we apply a Monte Carlo method, and the Néel magnetic relaxation time is assessed through the adaptation and solution of Coffey equations in oblique magnetic field, adapted to the local magnetic field on a nanoparticle.

  • The effect of gas slip on pressure drop and deposition of submicron
           particles in model granular filters
    • Authors: V. A. Kirsh; A. A. Kirsh
      Pages: 459 - 464
      Abstract: Abstract The Stokes flow field and aerosol particle deposition from flows in model filters, i.e., separate layers of granules with square and hexagonal structures, have been calculated taking into account the effect of gas slip at granule surface. Approximating formulas have been derived for granule drag forces to a flow. The efficiencies of diffusion collection of particles have been calculated in a wide range of Peclet numbers with allowance for a finite particle size and the existence of a Knudsen boundary layer, the layer thickness being comparable with the particle sizes. The applicability of the cell model to the calculation of granular filters has been discussed.

  • The effect of gas slip on pressure drop and deposition of submicron
           particles in fibrous filters
    • Authors: V. A. Kirsh; A. V. Shabatin; I. N. Senchikhin; S. A. Semenov
      Pages: 465 - 471
      Abstract: Abstract The effect of gas slip at fibers on the drag to a flow and the deposition of submicron particles in model filters with a tree-dimensional flow field has been considered. The average values of the drag force and the efficiency of diffusion collection of particles with finite sizes in a double hexagonal three-dimensional model filter taken as a standard uniform filter have been calculated as depending on the packing density of fibers and the Knudsen number. It has been shown that, in the region of the sizes of the most penetrating particles, under preset conditions, and at specified filter parameters, the obtained collection efficiency values agree with the results of calculations performed by empirical formulas for a model fan filter. Moreover, formulas derived for a planar flow taking into account the slip effect are applicable to highly porous filters.

  • Bulk condensation in a dusty vapor–gas flow with regard to dust
           particle size distribution
    • Authors: N. M. Kortsenshteyn; A. K. Yastrebov
      Pages: 472 - 477
      Abstract: Abstract Bulk condensation in a dusty vapor–gas flow has been numerically simulated taking into account dust particle size distribution. Two types of distribution (monodisperse and lognormal) have been used. Changes in the bulk condensation process that are relevant to the dustiness of the flow have been revealed by comparing the results obtained for dust-free and dusty flows at the monodisperse dust distribution. Variations in the relative contributions of the homogeneous and heterogeneous mechanisms with variations in the flow dustiness have been considered. The effect of the root-mean-square deviation in the dust particle sizes on the bulk condensation in the dusty flow has been illustrated by comparing the data obtained for the monodisperse and lognormal distributions.

  • Synthesis and aggregation stability of europium oxohydroxide hydrosols
    • Authors: A. V. Malova; A. S. Grodskii; I. A. Belova
      Pages: 478 - 484
      Abstract: Abstract Europium oxohydroxide hydrosols that are resistant to aggregation have been obtained by the condensation method. The density of dispersed phase particles, phase composition and dispersity of the sols, electrokinetic potential of the particles, and its dependence on medium pH have been determined. The effect of dispersion medium pH on the mechanism and reversibility of particle aggregation has been studied. The nature of the aggregation stability of the synthesized europium oxohydroxide hydrosols has been discussed.

  • Solvent replacement (decane → hexane) in concentrated silver organosols
           stabilized with sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate
    • Authors: P. S. Popovetskiy; N. O. Shaparenko; A. T. Arymbaeva; A. I. Bulavchenko
      Pages: 485 - 491
      Abstract: Abstract The structure-related properties of silver nanoparticles synthesized in reverse micellar solutions of sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate (AOT) have been studied in the processes of electrophoretic concentraton of nanoparticles, drying of concentrates, and redispersion in n-hexane and n-decane. It has been shown that the dispersity of nanoparticles and stability of organosols to aggregation remain preserved upon the replacement of a low-volatile solvent (decane) by a high-volatile solvent (hexane). The developed procedures enable one to easily regulate important technological characteristics of metal-based inkjet “nanoinks,” such as concentration and size of particles, as well as viscosity and drying rate of the inks.

  • Study of cryostructuring of polymer systems. 42. Physicochemical
           properties and microstructure of wide-porous covalently cross-linked
           albumin cryogels
    • Authors: I. A. Rodionov; N. V. Grinberg; T. V. Burova; V. Ya. Grinberg; V. I. Lozinsky
      Pages: 492 - 504
      Abstract: Abstract Chemically cross-linked wide-porous protein cryogels have been obtained by freezing aqueous bovine serum albumin (BSA) solutions (30–50 g/L) at–15,–20, or–25°C in the presence of water-soluble carbodiimide (CDI) as a coupling agent. It has been shown that the gel-fraction yield and the swelling extent of the polymer phase of the formed spongy matrices depend primarily on the initial concentration of albumin and the amount of CDI added to a system, while the morphometric characteristics of the porous microstructure of the BSA cryogels are mainly determined by the temperature of the cryogenic treatment. The sizes of macropores in the obtained cryogels range from ≈50 to ≈200 μm. A high-sensitivity differential scanning calorimetric study of the conformational state of protein macromolecules incorporated into the spatial network of the polymer phase (gel walls of macropores) of the cryogels has shown that, during the cryotropic gelation, the native structure of albumin globules is subjected to “cold denaturation,” and the partly unfolded conformation of the protein is, simultaneously, fixed by intermolecular covalent cross links.

  • Novel nanocomposites based on silver nanoparticles and mixed epoxyamine

      Pages: 505 - 508
      Abstract: Abstract A procedure has been proposed for the direct synthesis (without the use of reductants) of silver nanoparticles in an epoxy polymer matrix with the formation of novel nanocomposites. The average size of the formed nanoparticles has been shown to be about 18 nm. The polymer cross linking leads to the formation of chain aggregates of the nanoparticles. Nanocomposites containing isolated (individual) silver nanoparticles can also be obtained.

  • Phenomenological formula for thermal conductivity coefficient of
           water-based nanofluids
    • Authors: D. Ceotto; V. Ya. Rudyak
      Pages: 509 - 514
      Abstract: Abstract A phenomenological formula has been proposed to describe the thermal conductivity of waterbased nanofluids. The formula has been derived based on available experimental data on nanofluids containing Al2O3 particles. It takes into account the dependence of the thermal conductivity coefficients of the nanofluids on both volume concentration and sizes of the particles. The formula has also been shown to describe with an accuracy of about 3% the thermal conductivity coefficients of nanofluids containing TiO2, SiO2, ZrO2, and CuO particles with sizes of 8–150 nm and volume concentrations as high as 8%.

  • Specific features of polyol synthesis of silver nanoparticles with the use

      Abstract: Abstract Electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and chromatography-mass spectrometry have been employed to investigate the reduction of solid silver caprylate in ethylene glycol with the formation of silver nanoparticles. The structural characteristics of silver nanoparticles have been studied as depending on the conditions of their synthesis, including temperature, reduction time, and silver salt concentration. It has been found that, in the studied range of parameters under the conditions, when solid silver caprylate is dispersed in ethylene glycol, the characteristics of resulting nanoparticles are almost independent of the synthesis temperature. This peculiarity is related to the fact that the formation and growth of nanoparticles occur on the surface of silver salt crystals and are accompanied by gradual dissolution thereof. In this system, ethylene glycol plays the roles of a reductant and a solvent for liquid reaction products.

AgBr nanoparticles have been obtained in the free form by dissolving the matrix in water, and their activity in the photodegradation of methylene blue dye has been studied.

  • Intercalation of salicylic acid into ZnAl and MgAl layered double
           hydroxides for a controlled release formulation
    • Authors: Manel Haraketi; Khaled Hosni; Ezzeddine Srasra
      Pages: 533 - 541
      Abstract: Abstract Salicylic acid was intercalated into an inorganic host consisting of ZnAl/MgAl-layered double hydroxides lamella by reconstruction method. Powder X-ray diffractograms showed that the basal spacing of the layered double hydroxide bearing salicylate as the intergallery anion expanded from 7.6 and 7.8 Å in the precursors to 14.49 Å and 14.85 in ZnAl and MgAl layered double hydroxide, respectively. These values suggest that the organic molecules form bilayers in the interlayer space. Fourier transform infrared study further confirmed intercalation of salicylate into the interlayer’s of the layered double hydroxides. The thermal stability of the intercalated salicylic acid is significantly enhanced compared with the pure form before intercalation. Using the XRD results combined with a molecular simulation model, a possible representation of the salicylate anion positioning between the lamellar layers has been proposed. The in vitro drug release from intercalated material was remarkably lower than that from the corresponding physical mixture at pH 7.5. The kinetic analysis showed the importance of the diffusion through the particle in controlling the drug release rate. The obtained results show that hydrotalcite may be used to prepare modified release formulations.

  • Water vapor nucleation on ion pairs under the conditions of a planar
           nanopore
    • Authors: S. V. Shevkunov
      Pages: 542 - 552
      Abstract: Abstract Computer simulation has been employed to study the effect of a confined space of a planar model pore with structureless hydrophobic walls on the hydration of Na+Cl– ion pairs in water vapor at room temperature. A detailed many-body model of intermolecular interactions has been used. The model has been calibrated relative to experimental data on the free energy and enthalpy of the initial reactions of water molecule attachment to ions and the results of quantum-chemical calculations of the geometry and energy of Na+Cl– (H2O) N clusters in stable configurations, as well as spectroscopic data on Na+Cl– dimer vibration frequencies. The free energy and work of hydration, as well as the adsorption curve, have been calculated from the first principles by the bicanonical statistical ensemble method. The dependence of hydration shell size on interionic distance has been calculated by the method of compensation potential. The transition between the states of a contact (CIP) and a solvent-separated ion pair (SSIP) has been reproduced under the conditions of a nanopore. The influence of the pore increases with the hydration shell size and leads to the stabilization of the SSIP states, which are only conditionally stable in bulk water vapor.

  • Key thermodynamic characteristics of nucleation on charged and neutral
           cores of molecular sizes in terms of the gradient density functional
           theory
    • Authors: A. K. Shchekin; T. S. Lebedeva; D. V. Tatyanenko
      Pages: 553 - 565
      Abstract: Abstract The gradient density functional theory and the Carnahan–Starling model formulated for describing the contribution of hard spheres have been used to calculate the profiles of condensate density in small critical droplets formed via homogeneous nucleation, as well as in stable and critical droplets formed via heterogeneous nucleation on solid charged and neutral condensation cores of molecular sizes. The calculations performed for water and argon at different values of condensate chemical potential have yielded the heights of the activation barriers for homoand heterogeneous nucleation as functions of vapor supersaturation at preset system temperatures. The interaction of condensate molecules with a solid core has been described by the resultant potential of molecular attractive forces. In the case of a charged core, the long-range Coulomb potential of electric forces has additionally been taken into account. Dielectric permittivities have been calculated as known functions of the local density of the fluid and temperature. The radius of the equimolecular droplet surface has been chosen as a variable describing the droplet size. Dependences of the chemical potential of condensate molecules in a droplet on its size have been plotted for water and argon with allowance for the action of capillary, electrostatic, and molecular forces. It has been shown that the role of the molecular force potential in heterogeneous nucleation increases with the size of condensation cores.

  • Synthesis and surface treatment of magnetite nanoparticles for tuning
           hydrophobicity and colloidal stability
    • Authors: Sushilkumar A. Jadhav; Roberta Bongiovanni; Daniele Marchisio
      Pages: 566 - 572
      Abstract: Abstract Post-synthetic surface modification of magnetite nanoparticles synthesized by a modified co-precipitation process was carried out with triethoxy-terminated perfluoropolyether (PFPE) oligomers. The chemisorption of PFPE oligomers on the surface of magnetites was confirmed by ATR-FTIR and TGA analyses. The efficiency of surface modification of the oligomer to prevent the aggregation of magnetite nanoparticles was studied with the dynamic light scattering technique by measuring the hydrodynamic diameter and polydispersity index of the surface treated nanoparticles, together with their zeta potential. Aggregation kinetics profiles were constructed for surface treated nanoparticles. The obtained data was compared with magnetite nanoparticles treated with critic acid, to assess the efficiency of the surface modification with the PFPE oligomers. The comparison showed that the bifunctional PFPE oligomer treated nanoparticles are characterized by improved colloidal stability and hydrophobicity.

  • Electrosurface properties of poly(ethylene terephthalate) films irradiated
           by heavy ions and track membranes based on these films
    • Authors: K. G. Sabbatovskii; A. I. Vilenskii; V. D. Sobolev
      Pages: 573 - 575
      Abstract: Abstract The streaming potential method realized in a slit-like setup using 10–4–10–2 mol/L KCl solutions has been employed to study the electrosurface characteristics of poly(ethylene terephthalate) films, both initial and irradiated by heavy ions, as well as track membranes with pore sizes of 50 and 210 nm made from these films. Their ζ potentials and surface charges have been calculated. The data obtained suggest that irradiation of the polymer films by heavy ions reduce the ζ potential and surface charge. However, as a result of film etching during the preparation of the track membranes, the ζ potential and surface charge increase and exceed the corresponding values for the initial film.

  • The structure and conductivity of thin composite films formed from
           nanodispersions of silver particles by the moving meniscus method
    • Authors: V. V. Vysotskii; V. I. Roldughin; O. Ya. Uryupina; I. N. Senchikhin; A. V. Zaitseva
      Pages: 315 - 321
      Abstract: Abstract The formation processes, structure, geometric parameters, and conductivity are studied for thin composite films prepared from nanodispersions of silver particles with diameters smaller than 10 nm by the moving meniscus method. The thickness and conductivity of the films are determined as functions of the mass concentration of a precursor (AgNO3) and the concentration (size) of silver nanoparticles. Some of these functions are nonmonotonic. The dependences of the conductivity on these parameters are found to have the character of a percolation transition. Heterogeneous crystallization of soluble components of the colloidal solutions on silver nanoparticles plays an essential role in the formation of the films.
