AB  - Gamma irradiation provides an alternative pathway to conventional gold nanoparticle synthesis because it is simple, fast, and economical. Here, we employed gamma irradiation at low doses (1–20 kGy) to obtain gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) anchored onto graphene oxide (GO) sheets. GO was selected as a suitable platform for the nucleation and growth of Au NPs because of its large surface area and good dispersibility in water due to the presence of polar oxygen-containing functional groups in its structure. Gamma irradiation at all the applied doses led to the reduction of chloroauric acid and the formation of evenly distributed Au NPs at the GO surface, simultaneously causing the reduction of GO and partial restoration of the graphene structure. As-prepared Au NPs have predominately spheric shapes and the smallest nanoparticles were reported for the dose of 1 kGy. The increase in the irradiation dose caused either the growth of larger particles (5 and 10 kGy) or the broad distribution of particles’ sizes (20 kGy). All samples showed a temperature increase upon exposure to 800 nm laser and photothermal efficiency was the highest for the sample prepared at 20 kGy.

AB  - The effect of Ca2+ amount and sintering temperature on mechanical properties of
geopolymer-brushite (GPB) binders was investigated. Brushite and raw abandoned kaolinite
clay thermally transformed into metakaolin were used for GPB synthesis. The complete phase
and structural analyses were performed by X-ray powder diffraction, and Fourier transforms
infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). The pore-filling effect as a consequence of Ca2+ ions
incorporation into the hybrid geopolymer networks improved the compressive strength. On
the other hand, the chosen biscuit sintering at 800 and 900o
C caused the phase
transformation of brushite into calcium pyrophosphate, which negatively affected the
compressive strength of such materials. The obtained results indicate that the usage of
relatively high sintering temperatures is not always the necessary step for producing
geopolymer-based types of cement with prominent mechanical properties.

AB  - The emerging threat of bacterial resistance to antibiotics prompts the urgent search for biomaterials for the treatment of infectious disease. Here we report on the synthesis and characterization of a multiphasic nanocomposite comprising magnetic iron oxide and silver nanoparticles. The method of synthesis involved the combustion of a metalorganic complex and reduction of the silver ions that were exchanged and/or adsorbed on the surface of iron oxide. Different physical and chemical treatments coupled to the reduction process, including ultrasound and Lugol's iodine solution, respectively, homogenized the distribution of the silver nanoparticles on the iron oxide phase. Remarkably, using ascorbic acid as a reductant enhanced the magnetic properties of the material as a result of the reduction of the magnetic matrix alongside the silver cations. The treatment with ultrasound detached large amounts of silver from the iron oxide phase and resulted in the lowest amount of silver incorporated in the nanocomposite. Despite that, this treatment led to the highest antibacterial activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative strains, indicating that the homogeneity of the distribution of silver on the iron oxide matrix is a more important determinant of the antibacterial performance than the amount of silver incorporated in the material. At the same time, the treatment with Lugol's iodine equally increased the distribution homogeneity, but induced excessive ion exchange and crystal lattice substitutions, thereby adversely affecting the antibacterial performance. This has indicated that the mode of binding silver to iron oxide can compensate for the positive effects of homogeneous distribution with respect to the antibacterial performance.

AB  - Structural modification of different carbon-based nanomaterials is often necessary to
improve their morphology and optical properties, particularly the incorporation of N-atoms in
graphene quantum dots (GQDs). Here, a clean, simple, one-step, and eco-friendly method for
N-doping of GQDs using gamma irradiation is reported. GQDs were irradiated in the presence
of the different ethylenediamine (EDA) amounts (1 g, 5 g, and 10 g) and the highest % of N was
detected in the presence of 10 g. N-doped GQDs emitted strong, blue photoluminescence (PL).
Photoluminescence quantum yield was increased from 1.45, as obtained for non-irradiated dots,
to 7.24% for those irradiated in the presence of 1 g of EDA. Modified GQDs were investigated as
a PL probe for the detection of insecticide Carbofuran (2,2-Dimethyl-2,3-dihydro-1-benzofuran-7-
yl methylcarbamate) and herbicide Amitrole (3-amino-1,2,4-triazole). The limit of detection was
5.4 µmol L−1
for Carbofuran. For the first time, Amitrole was detected by GQDs in a turn-off/turn-on
mechanism using Pd(II) ions as a quenching agent. First, Pd(II) ions were quenched (turn-off) PL
of GQDs, while after Amitrole addition, PL was recovered linearly with Amitrole concentration
(turn-on). LOD was 2.03 µmol L−1
. These results suggest that modified GQDs can be used as an
efficient new material for Carbofuran and Amitrole detection. Furthermore, the phototoxicity of dots
was investigated on both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains. When bacterial cells
were exposed to different GQD concentrations and illuminated with light of 470 nm wavelength, the
toxic effects were not observed.

AB  - Despite many advantages, the practical application of fullerene C60 and curcumin (CUR) has been limited by their hydrophobic nature, deficient solubility in aqueous media and, therefore, poor bioavailability. In this study, aqueous nanoformulations containing C60 and CUR in the absence and presence of three solubility enhancers, β-cyclodextrin (CD), Tween 80 (T80) and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), were prepared and subjected to the antioxidant activity assessment. The content of C60 and CUR, stability, size and morphology of nanoparticles were determined using UV–vis, DLS and SEM techniques. Contrary to better solubility of pure C60 than the corresponding C60-CUR system, the solubilization of CUR in hybrid suspensions was improved compared to corresponding pure CUR suspensions, with the exception of the C60-CUR-PVP formulation. The DLS results revealed nearly monodisperse nature of CUR-T80 nanoformulation, while other ones ranged from widely dispersed to polydispersed. Depending on the type of solubilizer, similarity was observed in the particle size distributions of T80- and PVP-coated nanoformulations as well as water and CD nanoformulations. The presence of T80 differently and significantly reduces the particle size in all three nanoformulations, while PVP slightly reduces CUR-based nanoparticles but increases the size of C60 nanoparticles. Zeta potential values, ranging from − 9 mV to − 34 mV, show variation in the starting stability of nanoparticles, from unstable or relatively stable three PVP formulations and C60-T80 to highly stable CUR-T80 and C60-water. Compared to water nanoformulations as a control, SEM images of dispersant-coated nanoparticles lost the visible morphology of active components, showing variation in their morphology depending on the type of dispersant and active component used. Nanoformulations containing CUR in PVP and T80 expressed a very good antioxidant potential in DPPH radical scavenging assay, much stronger than ascorbic acid. At the same time, a moderate to high antioxidant activity in β-carotene bleaching assay was reached in PVP and T80 nanoformulations containing C60, CUR, and their noncovalent hybrid, as well. Our studies have shown that T80 and PVP colloidal systems containing C60-CUR hybrid, but also their individual components, can be used as stable antioxidant nanoformulations with potential application in the field of food and pharmacology.

abstract = "Despite many advantages, the practical application of fullerene C60 and curcumin (CUR) has been limited by their hydrophobic nature, deficient solubility in aqueous media and, therefore, poor bioavailability. In this study, aqueous nanoformulations containing C60 and CUR in the absence and presence of three solubility enhancers, β-cyclodextrin (CD), Tween 80 (T80) and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), were prepared and subjected to the antioxidant activity assessment. The content of C60 and CUR, stability, size and morphology of nanoparticles were determined using UV–vis, DLS and SEM techniques. Contrary to better solubility of pure C60 than the corresponding C60-CUR system, the solubilization of CUR in hybrid suspensions was improved compared to corresponding pure CUR suspensions, with the exception of the C60-CUR-PVP formulation. The DLS results revealed nearly monodisperse nature of CUR-T80 nanoformulation, while other ones ranged from widely dispersed to polydispersed. Depending on the type of solubilizer, similarity was observed in the particle size distributions of T80- and PVP-coated nanoformulations as well as water and CD nanoformulations. The presence of T80 differently and significantly reduces the particle size in all three nanoformulations, while PVP slightly reduces CUR-based nanoparticles but increases the size of C60 nanoparticles. Zeta potential values, ranging from − 9 mV to − 34 mV, show variation in the starting stability of nanoparticles, from unstable or relatively stable three PVP formulations and C60-T80 to highly stable CUR-T80 and C60-water. Compared to water nanoformulations as a control, SEM images of dispersant-coated nanoparticles lost the visible morphology of active components, showing variation in their morphology depending on the type of dispersant and active component used. Nanoformulations containing CUR in PVP and T80 expressed a very good antioxidant potential in DPPH radical scavenging assay, much stronger than ascorbic acid. At the same time, a moderate to high antioxidant activity in β-carotene bleaching assay was reached in PVP and T80 nanoformulations containing C60, CUR, and their noncovalent hybrid, as well. Our studies have shown that T80 and PVP colloidal systems containing C60-CUR hybrid, but also their individual components, can be used as stable antioxidant nanoformulations with potential application in the field of food and pharmacology.",

AB  - Two new Schiff base cobalt(III) ([Co(LH)Cl2], 1) and nickel(II) ([Ni(LH)ClO4], 2) complexes with a diimine-dioxime ligand, (4,9-diaza-3,10-diethyl-3,9-dodecadiene-2,11-dione bis oxime (LH2)), were synthesized and characterized. The compounds were obtained in MeOH from corresponding metal salts and LH2 in molar ratio 1:1 and further characterized by mass spectrometry, IR spectroscopy, electrochemistry, and elemental analysis. Previously reported copper(II) analog, ([Cu2(LH)2]·(ClO4)2, 3) was joined to 1 and 2, and the three metal analogs, 1-3, were further investigated in terms of their electrochemical behavior. The binding studies of the complexes with deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and human serum albumin (HSA) were carried out using both spectrophotometric and electrochemical methods. All three complexes exhibit binding affinity towards the DNA chain through intercalative interaction. The binding reaction with HSA showed for 1 and 3 complexes decrease in the peak current obtained in the case of complexes before the addition of HSA, while resulted compound obtained from Ni complex – HSA possesses the same electroactivity as starting complex. Furthermore, the cytotoxicity of LH2 as well as its metal complexes, and cisplatin were evaluated on CT-26 mouse colon carcinoma and human LS174T cancer cell lines employing MTT assay. The copper(II) complex exhibited very promising anticancer activity compared with cisplatin.

AB  - A dysregulated and overwhelming response to an infection accompanied by the exaggerated pro-inflammatory state and metabolism disturbance leads to the fatal outcome in sepsis. Previously we showed that meldonium, an anti-ischemic drug clinically used to treat myocardial and cerebral ischemia, strongly increases mortality in faecal-induced peritonitis (FIP) in rats. We postulated that the same mechanism that is responsible for the otherwise strong anti-inflammatory effects of meldonium could be the culprit of the increased mortality. In the present study, we applied the LPS-induced model of sepsis to explore the presence of any differences from and/or similarities to the FIP model. When it comes to energy production, despite some shared similarities, it is evident that LPS and FIP models of sepsis differ greatly. A different profile of sympathoadrenal activation may account for this observation, as it was lacking in the FIP model, whereas in the LPS model it was strong enough to overcome the effects of meldonium. Therefore, choosing the appropriate model of sepsis induction is of great importance, especially if energy homeostasis is the main focus of the study. Even when differences in the experimental design of the two models are acknowledged, the role of different patterns of energy production cannot be excluded. On that account, our results draw attention to the importance of uninterrupted energy production in sepsis but also call for much-needed revisions of the current recommendations for its treatment. © 2022 by the authors.

AB  - We investigated the ability of graphene quantum dot (GQD) nanoparticles to protect SH-SY5Y human neuro blastoma cells from oxidative/nitrosative stress induced by iron-nitrosyl complex sodium nitroprusside (SNP). 
GQD reduced SNP cytotoxicity by preventing mitochondrial depolarization, caspase-2 activation, and subsequent 
apoptotic death. Although GQD diminished the levels of nitric oxide (NO) in SNP-exposed cells, NO scavengers 
displayed only a slight protective effect, suggesting that NO quenching was not the main protective mechanism of 
GQD. GQD also reduced SNP-triggered increase in the intracellular levels of hydroxyl radical (
•
OH), superoxide 
anion (O2
•− ), and lipid peroxidation. Nonselective antioxidants, •
OH scavenging, and iron chelators, but not 
superoxide dismutase, mimicked GQD cytoprotective activity, indicating that GQD protect cells by neutralizing •
OH generated in the presence of SNP-released iron. Cellular internalization of GQD was required for optimal 
protection, since a removal of extracellular GQD by extensive washing only partly diminished their protective 
effect. Moreover, GQD cooperated with SNP to induce autophagy, as confirmed by the inhibition of autophagy limiting Akt/PRAS40/mTOR signaling and increase in autophagy gene transcription, protein levels of proauto phagic beclin-1 and LC3-II, formation of autophagic vesicles, and degradation of autophagic target p62. The 
antioxidant activity of GQD was not involved in autophagy induction, as antioxidants N-acetylcysteine and 
dimethyl sulfoxide failed to stimulate autophagy in SNP-exposed cells. Pharmacological inhibitors of early 
(wortmannin, 3-methyladenine) or late stages of autophagy (NH4Cl) efficiently reduced the protective effect of 
GQD. Therefore, the ability of GQD to prevent the in vitro neurotoxicity of SNP depends on both •
OH/NO 
scavenging and induction of cytoprotective autophagy.

AB  - Different phosphates and phosphonates have shown excellent coating ability toward magnetic nanoparticles, improving their stability and biocompatibility which enables their biomedical application. The magnetic hyperthermia efficiency of phosphates (IDP and IHP) and phosphonates (MDP and HEDP) coated Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) were evaluated in an alternating magnetic field. For a deeper understanding of hyperthermia, the behavior of investigated MNPs in the non-alternating magnetic field was monitored by measuring the transparency of the sample. To investigate their theranostic potential coated Fe3O4-MNPs were radiolabeled with radionuclide 177Lu. Phosphate coated MNPs were radiolabeled in high radiolabeling yield (> 99%) while phosphonate coated MNPs reached maximum radiolabeling yield of 78%. Regardless lower radiolabeling yield both radiolabeled phosphonate MNPs may be further purified reaching radiochemical purity of more than 95%. In vitro stabile radiolabeled nanoparticles in saline and HSA were obtained. The high heating ability of phosphates and phosphonates coated MNPs as sine qua non for efficient in vivo hyperthermia treatment and satisfactory radiolabeling yield justifies their further research in order to develop new theranostic agents. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.

AB  - With the growth of the industrial world and the rise of anthropogenic activities, environmental challenges have also increased. Wastewater, especially from industrial sources can contain a wide variety of heavy metals [1]. The presence of heavy metals in water resources is a cause for concern due to their toxicity and tendency to bioaccumulation, which leads to significant problems for the environment as well as for animals and humans [2]. There are various conventional treatment technologies that are used for the removal of heavy metals from wastewater such as reverse osmosis, electrodialysis, ultrafiltration, industrial ion exchange process, and chemical precipitation. These techniques have some drawbacks such a being expensive due to high reagent and energy requirements, incomplete metal removal at low concentrations of heavy metals and generation of sludge [1]. Therefore, biosorption has been the subject of research by scientists for almost 70 years in order to find efficient, effective, and low-cost biomaterials for wastewater treatment [3]. In this study, a sunflower husk treated with 1% hydrochloric acid was used to evaluate removal efficiency for Ni from real wastewater samples, as well as to estimate the adsorption capacity as a function of contact time between the heavy metal ions such as Cd in the aqueous solution and the sunflower husk as a biosorbent. Two techniques were used for quantitative analysis, Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) as a standard reference method and laser-induced plasma spectroscopy (LIBS) as an innovative non-standard analytical method. What makes the LIBS superior from the other standard optical techniques is that it allows fast multi-elemental analysis without prior sample preparation, leads to minimal sample damage, and is considered almost non-destructive, this method is also by the principles of green analytical chemistry, which means that it does not use toxic reagents and therefore no chemical waste [4]. The results of these two methods were compared, to examine the possibility of using laser-induced plasma spectroscopy as an alternative green analytical technology for quantitative analysis of sunflower husk as a biosorbent and evaluation of biosorption efficiency as a function of contact time.

AB  - Due to the low consumption of chemicals, the absence of toxic residual side products, the procedure simplicity
and time-saving aspects, gamma irradiation offers advantages over the classical chemical protocols. We suc cessfully employed gamma irradiation in order to introduce N-atoms in Graphene Quantum Dots (GQDs). By
irradiating GQDs water dispersions in the presence of isopropyl alcohol and ethylenediamine, at doses of 25, 50
and 200 kGy, we attached amino groups onto GQDs in a single synthetic step. At the same time, a chemical
reduction is achieved, too. Selected conditions induced incorporation of N-atoms within GDQs atomic lattice
(around 3 at%), at all applied doses. Additionally, the C-atoms percentage was highly increased, from 63 to 79 at
% or higher. The zeta potential of dots changed from −34.6 to +9.1 mV, due to the modification of functio nalizing groups localized at the surface. Produced chemical changes lead to the desired alteration of the GQDs
optical properties, such as an increased photoluminescence intensity, a higher photoluminescence quantum
yields (from 2.07 to 18.40%) and a narrowing of the spectral features in the emission spectra. The ability of
gamma-irradiated GQDs to quench free radical species was investigated and positively assessed; additionally,
non-enzymatic optical detection of Cu(II) ions using GQDs as a sensor was studied and the detection limits are
herein reported. These results suggest that GQDs can be potentially applied as smart photoluminescent sensors
for metal cations.

AB  - Objects of the present study are improved fullerene C60 drug carrier properties trough encapsulation by microbial polysaccharides, levan (LEV), pullulan (PUL), and their hydrophobized cholesterol-derivatives (CHL and CHP), that show better interaction with cancer cells. The zeta potential, polydispersity index, and the diameter of particles were determined, and their cytotoxicity against three cancer cell lines were tested. Biochemical changes in HeLa cells are analyzed by synchrotron radiation (SR) FTIR spectro-microscopy combined with the principal component analysis (PCA). The most significant changes occur in HeLa cells treated with LEV-C60 and correspond to the changes in the protein region, i.e. Amide Iband, and the changes in the structure of lipid bodies and membrane fluidity are evident. The highest cytotoxicity was also induced by LEV-C60. In HeLa cells, cytotoxicity could not be strictly associated with biochemical changes in lipids, proteins and nucleic acids, but these findings are significant contribution to the study of the mechanism of interaction of C60-based nanoparticles with cellular biomolecules. In conclusion, LEV, PUL, CHL, and CHP enhanced fullerene C60potential to be used as target drug delivery system with the ability to induce specific intracellular changes in HeLa cancer cells.
