    Nanoparticle (NP) patterning on a solid surface via nanofluid droplet evaporation is one of the most fascinating topics of research. Quite intriguingly, though a dose of excess ligand has been invariably included in all of the experimental studies that resulted in large-area NP patterns, the role of this excess ligand has been addressed inadequately in the modeling studies carried out so far. Addressing this, we have conducted systematic studies by including excess ligand both in our experiments and modeling, and correlated the results with each other. For this, we prepared nearly monodispersed thiolprotected gold nanoparticle dispersion in toluene and added calculated amounts of excess thiol before drop-casting it onto a transmission electron microscopy (TEM) grid. Subsequently, upon solvent evaporation, the patterns formed were imaged using conventional electron microscopy and analyzed with customized image processing tools, to perform statistically significant measurements. Our study demonstrates the ability of soluble excess ligand to induce NP aggregation under nonequilibrium condition, leading to large-area monolayer formation. These experimental results were then rationalized by Monte Carlo simulations, based on a modified coarse-grained two-dimensional (2D) lattice-gas model. We found that excess ligand facilitates NP spinodal phase separation under nonequilibrium conditions, largely governed by the interplay between ligand?solvent and nanoparticle?ligand interactions. Using power spectrum density analysis, we clearly demonstrate that these spatial patterns have fractal surface characteristics due to persistent fractional Brownian motion within subdiffusion limit.

    The fabrication of a dual-functional drug-containing porous polymeric scaffold by layer-by-layer surface modification involving citrate-stabilized gold nanoparticles and cisplatin molecules is being reported. These scaffolds were characterized by electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The capability of the scaffolds to release hydrated cisplatin in a slow and sustained manner over two days is established. Most importantly, the scaffolds turn nontoxic and cell-friendly after drug release, thus allowing the noncancerous fibroblast cells to adhere and proliferate (from 5000 cells to 16,000 cells in 6 days), becoming a potential solution toward an effective drug-carrying scaffold for volume-filling applications. The scaffold-mediated cancer cell killing and fibroblast cell proliferation were confirmed by fluorescence microscopy imaging, flow cytometry, and cell proliferation assays. We surmise that such a dual-purpose (drug-delivery and volume-filler) scaffold could help avoid the multiple surgical interventions needed for tumor surgery and cosmetic corrections. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first example of scaffolds with such a dual functionality which gets manifested in a sequential manner.

    Digestive ripening (DR) is a process where a polydisperse nanocrystal (NC) system is converted into a monodisperse one with the aid of thermal heating of NCs in the presence of an excess surface-active organic ligand called digestive ripening agent (DRA) and a solvent. Here, we demonstrate that the solvent?DRA compatibility influences the final size and size distribution of the NCs in a significant manner. Accordingly, in this study, using the DR of gold NCs as the test case with alkanethiol (decanethiol/C10HT) and fluorinated thiol (1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluorodecanethiol/C10FT) as DRA’s and toluene and ?,?,?- trifluoro-toluene (TFT) and their combination as solvents, we clearly establish that alkanethiols result in best-quality NCs after DR in toluene while the fluorinated thiols provide reasonably monodispersed NCs in TFT. Our results also ascertain that even when DR is carried out in a mixture of solvents, as long as the compatible solvent is the major component, the DR process results in reasonably monodisperse NCs. As soon as the amount of uncompatible solvent exceeds a threshold limit, there is perceptible increase in the polydispersity of the NCs. We conclude that the polarity of the solvent, which affects the buildup of ligated atoms/clusters, plays a key role in controlling the size distributions of the NCs.
