  • Publication number: 20110110985
    Abstract: A therapy agent is disclosed that is made up of a functionalized nanomaterial that provides solutions to current problems facing the field of chelation therapies and dialysis of metals, radionuclides, and metabolic wastes. Through the coupling of groups tailored to selectively capture specific toxins and rigid porous backbone structures (e.g., mesoporous silica and mesoporous carbon), suitable materials that are highly effective and fast at capturing toxins (metals, radionuclides, and metabolic wastes) in the presence of competing ions and proteins. These materials may be embodied in a variety of treatment devices which allow for treatment and removal of these target materials through a variety of methodologies including oral, dermal and dialysis pathways.

  • Publication number: 20090288962
    Abstract: A mercury-free, electrochemical sensor is described that includes a self-assembled monolayer on a mesoporous support (SAMMS) composite and a fluoropolymer component that is deposited on a measurement surface. The SAMMS component provides outstanding metal preconcentration. The fluoropolymer component acts as an antifouling binder. The sensor can detect various metals at a low detection level in the presence of fouling agents and without sample pretreatment. The sensor is also able to detect mixtures of metals simultaneously with excellent single and inter-electrode reproducibility. Service lifetimes are excellent.
