Particle Sciences focuses on BCS II/III/IV molecules, biologics and highly potent compounds through a variety of technologies including emulsions, gels, micro and nanoparticulates, drug-eluting devices, solid solutions, lyophilization and others.
"They will assess particle size distribution, detailed chemical analysis, in order to understand improved harvesting of nanoparticulates, reduction of water content and resource recovery.
One advantage of this method is that the pore structures can be controlled by selectively adjusting the size and shape of the silica nanoparticulates. In addition, the fast solubilization kinetics of silica nanoparticulates increases the pore generation speed and reduces the cost of fabricating porous nanofibers with controlled structures [25].

NANOPARTICULATES AFFECT PELAGIC MICROALGAE AND AQUATIC MACROFAUNA.
We needed to be able to reproduce the outstanding catalytic performance of these materials in nanoparticulates that offered high surface areas." Yang and his colleagues at Berkeley accomplished this by transforming solid polyhedral bimetallic nanoparticles of platinum and nickel into hollow nanoframes.

Codoping of TM improves photocatalytic activity of n-type metal oxide semiconductors [3], changes optical properties and photoactivity of nanoparticulates [4], influences the broad band luminescence excitation mechanism in rare earth-doped glasses [5], quenches lanthanide ([Nd.sup.3+]) transitions in glasses [6], and so forth.
We further investigated the effects of these soot nanoparticulates on fibroblast activation, evaluating the mRNA expression of different metalloproteases (MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7, MMP-9, and MMP-12), collagen types (Col I and Col III), and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF).
Particulates were annealed at 500[degrees]C for 24 hours and at a pressure of <[10.sup.-6] mbar, with the most noteworthy physiochemical changes including (i) the recrystallisation of the bulk metallic cores (leading to the diffusion bonding of some previously discrete nanoparticulates) and (ii) alterations to the nominally magnetite ([Fe.sub.3][O.sub.4]) surface oxide (including thinning, dehydration, and migration of impurities toward surfaces and an increase in [Fe.sup.0]/[Fe.sup.2+] and [Fe.sup.2+]/[Fe.sup.3+] ratios).
