Remediation of emerging environmental pollutants: A review based on advances in the uses of eco-friendly biofabricated nanomaterials.

Chemosphere 2021 Jul 15;275:129975. Epub 2021 Feb 15.

Laboratory of Plant Healthcare and Diagnostics, PG Department of Biotechnology and Microbiology, Karnataka University, Dharwad, 580 003, Karnataka, India. Electronic address:

The increased environmental pollutants due to anthropogenic activities are posing an adverse effects and threat on various biotic forms on the planet. Heavy metals and certain organic pollutants by their toxic persistence in the environment are regarded as significant pollutants worldwide. In recent years, pollutants exist in various forms in the environment are difficult to eliminate by traditional technologies due to various drawbacks. Read More

Synthesis and characterisation of arsenic nanoparticles and its interaction with DNA and cytotoxic potential on breast cancer cells.

Chem Biol Interact 2018 Nov 22;295:73-83. Epub 2017 Dec 22.

Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Pondicherry University, Puducherry 605 014, India. Electronic address:

Therapeutic applications of arsenic trioxide (ATO) are limited due to their severe adverse effects. However, nanoparticles of ATO might possess inimitable biologic effects based on their structure and size which differ from their parent molecules. Based on this conception, AsNPs were synthesized from ATO and comparatively analysed for their interaction mechanism with DNA using spectroscopic & electrochemical techniques. Read More

Lithographically Encrypted Inverse Opals for Anti-Counterfeiting Applications.

Small 2016 Jul 3;12(28):3819-26. Epub 2016 Jun 3.

Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (BK21+ Program), KAIST, Daejeon, 305-701, South Korea.

Colloidal photonic crystals possess inimitable optical properties of iridescent structural colors and unique spectral shape, which render them useful for security materials. This work reports a novel method to encrypt graphical and spectral codes in polymeric inverse opals to provide advanced security. To accomplish this, this study prepares lithographically featured micropatterns on the top surface of hydrophobic inverse opals, which serve as shadow masks against the surface modification of air cavities to achieve hydrophilicity.

Nanodiamonds as a new horizon for pharmaceutical and biomedical applications.

Curr Drug Deliv 2015 ;12(3):271-81

University of Mumbai, Bharati Vidyapeeth's College of Pharmacy, Department of Pharmaceutics, CBD Belapur, Sector-8, Navi-Mumbai-400614, India.

A palpable need for the optimization of therapeutic agents, due to challenges tackled by them such as poor pharmacokinetics and chemoresistance, has steered the journey towards novel interdisciplinary scientific field for emergence of nanostructure materials as a carrier for targeted delivery of therapeutic agents. Amongst various nanostructures, nanodiamonds are rapidly rising as promising nanostructures that are suited especially for various biomedical and imaging applications. Advantage of being biocompatible and ease of surface functionalization for targeting purpose, besides safety which are vacant by nanodiamonds made them a striking nanotool compared to other nonmaterials which seldom offer advantages of both functionality as well as safety.

Multifaceted role of tocotrienols in cardioprotection supports their structure: function relation.

Genes Nutr 2012 Jan 21;7(1):19-28. Epub 2011 May 21.

Department of Biotechnology, School of Life Sciences, Pondicherry University, Puducherry, Puducherry, India.

Tocotrienols are a class of vitamin E which modulates several mechanisms associated with cardioprotection, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, and neuroprotection. Unlike other Vitamin E-like compounds, tocotrienols possess inimitable properties. Quite a lot of studies have determined the cardioprotective abilities of tocotrienols and have been shown to possess novel hypocholesterolemic effects together with an ability to reduce the atherogenic apolipoprotein and lipoprotein plasma levels.

Against the rules: a marine bacterium, Loktanella rosea, possesses a unique lipopolysaccharide.

Glycobiology 2010 May 21;20(5):586-93. Epub 2010 Jan 21.

Dipartimento di Chimica Organica e Biochimica, Università di Napoli "Federico II", Complesso Universitario Monte S. Angelo, Via Cintia 4, 80126 Napoli, Italy.

Bacteria are an inimitable source of new glyco-structures potentially useful in medicinal and environmental chemistry. Lipopolysaccharides (LPS; endotoxins) are the major components of the outer membrane of Gram-negative bacteria; being exposed toward the external environment they can undergo structural changes and thus, they often possess peculiar chemical features that allow them to thrive in harsh chemical and physical environments. Marine bacteria have evolved and adapted over millions of years in order to succeed in different environments, finding a niche for their survival characterized by severe physical or chemical parameters.
