Scope and Objectives

a) Development of prototype: Introduce the iNPs into products for biomedical and environmental applications. b) Testing: iNP embedded products would be used to study the fate of the samples when released in environmental conditions. c) Safety Assessment studies: Technology demonstration and feasibility study for biomedical product monitoring and in vitro cell culture studies showing occupational exposure studies.

Deliverables

 

 

Scientific Output

a) Developed a new method to introduce 65Cu (100% enriched isotope) into ferrite nanoparticles. b) Studies show that environmental media can circumvent the toxicological impact of certain nanomaterials. c) Performed cell culture studies to test the compatibility of the nano tracers

 

Results and outcome till date

a) Developed a new method to introduce 65Cu (100% enriched isotope) into ferrite nanoparticles.
b) Studies show that environmental media can circumvent the toxicological impact of certain nanomaterials.
c) Performed cell culture studies to test the compatibility of the nano tracers.
d) Successfully embedded stable isotope of silver in SS and titanium alloy implant surfaces. This was done through ion implantation and physical vapour deposition
e) Successfully doped 65Copper isotope into ferrite structure.
