New York, United States - February 27, 2020 /MarketersMedia/ —

On February 26, 2020, Alfa Chemistry announced to introduce a wide range of functionalized nanomaterials to meet the increasing demand from their global customers.

Due to their small size, large surface area, and unique properties, nanomaterials have been widely used in nanomedicine, environmental restoration, and other catalytic applications. The surface coating of a nanomaterial determines many of its physical and chemical properties, especially stability, solubility and targeting functions. Functionalized nanomaterials refer to hybrid materials with novel characteristics and functions obtained by introducing small molecules or polymers on the surface of nanomaterials.

Functionalized nanomaterials not only possess the existing properties of nanomaterials, but are also given other additional properties. For example, functionalized nanomaterial-based catalysts can be used to catalyze many known organic reactions such as hydrogenation, dehalogenation, and organic oxidation reduction and C-C coupling reactions. Specially designed functionalized nanomaterials such as superparamagnetic iron oxide, quantum dots, and up- and down-converted lanthanide nanoparticles have special properties such as specific drug delivery, plasma effects, optical and imaging properties, and excellent cell permeability, therefore these functionalized nanomaterials can be used to improve the treatment of many existing diseases such as cancer.

Gold Nanoparticles (GNPs)
Gold nanoparticles are composed of a gold core and a double ion layer surrounded by an outer layer. When gold nanoparticles with antibodies or other biological probes are aggregated under the action of the target molecule, they will show a significantly different color from that in the dispersed state due to changes in their plasma absorption peaks, so they can be used for rapid immunoassay. Gold nanoparticles can be used for imaging of tumor vasculature, providing a basis for the diagnosis of potential tumors. Gold nanoparticles can also be used as drug carriers to improve the pharmacokinetics of drugs, reduce non-specific side effects and achieve higher doses of targeted administration.

Functionalized Gold Nanorods (GNRs)
As a typical functionalized nanomaterial product, functionalized gold nanorods (GNRs) have been widely used in the biomedical field due to their unique optical properties and excellent biocompatibility. There are two main ways to modify the surface of GNRs: one way is to combine small molecular compounds with GNRs through chemical bonds; the other way is to use organic or inorganic materials (such as surfactants, polymer materials, DNA biomolecules and silica) to directly encapsulate NRS for functional modification. Many small molecule compounds such as sulfhydryl compounds and adipic acid can form strong chemical bonds with the surface of NRs, and after being functionalized by chemical or biological methods, they can be widely used in biomedical fields such as biological separation, protein detection and medical imaging. Surfactants with functional groups can bind to the surface of NRs to change the surface properties of NRS. Suitable surfactants for binding NRs include chloroform, bovine serum albumin (BSA), and polyethylene glycol.

Oturu scores 30 as Minnesota beats No. 19 Michigan 75-67

Apr 5, 2020

MINNEAPOLIS — Daniel Oturu shook off an injury and had a career game to help Minnesota take down another ranked opponent. Oturu scored a career-high 30 points and the Gophers went on a late 11-0 run to beat No. 19 Michigan 75-67 on Sunday. The sophomore center had 20 points in a dominant first half, and he continued his roll with six quick points after the break. But with 14:35 remaining, he hit the deck hard while fighting for a rebound. He stayed on the floor for nearly five minutes, clutching his left shoulder as a hush fell over the...

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Apr 5, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

Former UConn coach Jim Calhoun earns 900th career win

Apr 5, 2020

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Jim Calhoun’s 900th win looked like so many others during a Hall of Fame coaching career. He stomped. He screamed. He slammed objects. The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...

Stewart leads way in Washington's 72-40 blowout of USC

Apr 5, 2020

SEATTLE — After a lackluster thud to begin Pac-12 Conference play, Washington rebounded with its biggest conference blowout in nearly a decade. Isaiah Stewart scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Quade Green added 14 points and Washington rebounded from a loss to open conference play with a 72-40 romp over Southern California on Sunday night. Stewart was again dominant on the interior despite sitting the final 9 minutes of the first half with foul trouble. The freshman post was 6-of-12 shooting and had two of Washington’s 12 blocked shots. Fellow freshman Jaden McDaniels added 11 points despite an off...

Grizzlies take advantage of George's absence to top Clippers

Apr 5, 2020

LOS ANGELES — Jae Crowder scored 27 points and the Memphis Grizzlies took advantage of Los Angeles star Paul George's absence to rout the Clippers 140-114 on Saturday. Jaren Jackson Jr. added 24 points, and Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks had 22 points each to help Memphis improve to 7-10 on the road with its highest scoring game of the season. Montrezl Harrell led the Clippers with 28 points, and Kawhi Leonard and Lou Williams added 24 points each. The team appeared out of sorts from the start without George. He sat out with left hamstring tightness and Los Angeles...
