How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Born in 1995, Rute received a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Aveiro in 2016, during which she started working in the development of magnetic nanoparticles. Later, she received a MSc in Biomedical Materials and Devices in 2018, while also working as a Research Grantee. She is currently a PhD Student of Nanosciences and Nanotechnology. Rute is also extremely interested in science communication and bringing science to online platforms. www.amazingchemist.com
While a continuous monitoring of temperature at the micro and nano-scales is clearly of interest in many contexts, in many others a yes or no answer to the question "did the system locally exceeded a certain temperature threshold?" can be more accurate and useful. This is the case of hard-to-detect events, such as those where temperature fluctuatio...
This study describes the first example of a hybrid material comprising corrole-and silica-coated magnetite nanoparticles. Firstly, cuboid and spheroid magnetite nanoparticles were prepared using a simple hydrothermal route, followed by a silica coating. The hybrid nanoparticles were obtained by promoting a covalent link between a gallium (III)(pyri...
