Study of self-assembled triethoxysilane thin films made by casting neat reagents in ambient atmosphere

Yongan Yang, Alexander M. Bittner, Steve Baldelli, Klaus Kern
2008 Thin Solid Films  
We studied four trialkoxysilane thin films, fabricated via self-assembly by casting neat silane reagents onto hydrophilic SiO x /Si substrates in the ambient. This drop-casting method is simple, yet rarely studied for the production of silane self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). Various exsitu techniques were utilized to systematically characterize the growth process: Ellipsometry measurements can monitor the evolution of film thickness with silanization time; water droplet contact angle

We show that the shorter carbon chain (propyl-) or branched (2-(diphenylphosphino)ethyl-) silane SAMs exhibit poor ordering. In contrast, longer carbon chain (octadecyl and decyl) silanes form relatively ordered monolayers. The growth of the latter two cases shows Langmuir-like kinetics and a transition process from lying-down to standing-up geometry with increasing coverage.

Structural studies of solution-made high alkali content borate glasses

Joy Banerjee, Greg Ongie, Jacob Harder, Trenton Edwards, Chris Larson, Scott Sutton, Anthony Moeller, Abhirup Basu, Mario Affatigato, Steve Feller, Masao Kodama, Pedro M. Aguiar (+1 others)
2006 Journal of Non-Crystalline Solids  
Abstract Introduction Alkali borate glasses [R(M 2 O).B 2 O 3 , where M is the alkali metal] are generally made by fusing alkali carbonates and boric acid or boron oxide.  ...  Since high R-value glasses are extremely hygroscopic, the glasses are made in an N 2 -environment glove box to prevent contact of the glass with moisture and CO 2 in the air.  ...  Royle made alkali borates up to R=3.8. However, this method was cumbersome as the starting materials were very hygroscopic and the glass samples needed to be prepared under an inert environment.  ...

The Immunomodulatory Activity of Meningococcal Lipoprotein Ag473 Depends on the Conformation Made up of the Lipid and Protein Moieties

2012 PLoS ONE  
We have previously demonstrated that the meningococcal antigen Ag473 in the presence of Freund's adjuvant can elicit protective immune responses in mouse challenge model. In this study, we evaluated the structural requirement for the immunological activity and the possible signaling pathway of recombinant Ag473 antigen produced in E. coli. We found that lipidated Ag473 (L-Ag473) possesses an intrinsic adjuvant activity that could be attributed to its ability to activate dendritic cells and

These results provide an indirect support that L-Ag473 may also be immunogenic in human. Interestingly, the observed activity is dependent on the overall conformation of L-Ag473 because heating and proteinase K treatment can diminish and abolish the activity. Furthermore, our data suggest a species-differential TLR recognition of L-Ag473. Overall, these data suggest a new paradigm for the ligand-TLR interaction in addition to demonstrating the self-adjuvanting activity of the vaccine candidate L-Ag473.
