Dopamine-decorated TiO2 nanoparticles in water: a QM/MM vs an MM description, Sep 08, 2020

Go to Volume 0, Issue ja


Nanoparticles functionalization is a modern strategy in nanotechnology to build up devices for several applications. Modelling fully decorated metal oxide nanoparticles of realistic size (few nanometers) in an aqueous environment is a challenging task. In this work we present a case study, relevant for solar-light exploitation and for biomedical applications, i.e. a dopamine-functionalized TiO2 nanoparticle (1700 atoms) in bulk water, for which we have performed an extensive comparative investigation with both MM and QM/MM approaches of the structural properties and of the conformational dynamics. We have used a combined multi-scale protocol for a more efficient exploration of the complex conformational space. On the basis of the results of this study and of some QM and experimental data, we have defined strengths and limitations of the existing force field parameters. Our findings will be useful for an

4D Multimodal Nanomedicines Made of Non-Equilibrium Au-Fe Alloy Nanoparticles, Sep 08, 2020

Go to Volume 0, Issue ja


Several examples of nanosized therapeutic and imaging agents have been proposed to date, yet for most of them there is a low chance of clinical translation due to long-term in vivo retention and toxicity risks. The realization of nano-agents that can be removed from the body after use remains thus a great challenge. Here, we demonstrate that non-equilibrium gold-iron alloys behave as shape-morphing nanocrystals with the properties of self-degradable multifunctional nanomedicines. DFT calculations combined with mixing enthalpy-weighted alloying simulations predict that Au-Fe solid solutions can exhibit self-degradation in aqueous environment if the Fe content exceeds a threshold that depends upon element topology in the nanocrystals. Exploiting a laser-assisted synthesis route, we experimentally confirm that non-equilibrium Au-Fe nanoalloys have a 4D behavior, that is the ability to change shape, size and structure over time, becoming ultrasmall Au-rich nanocrystals. In vivo tests

Bonding Properties of Isolated Metal Atoms on Two-Dimensional Oxides, Sep 05, 2020

Go to Volume 0, Issue ja


We report a systematic comparative dispersion-corrected DFT study of single (K, Au, and Pt) atoms adsorption over a wide range of metal-supported oxide ultrathin films (MgO on Ag and Mo, ZnO on Cu, Ag, and Au, SiO2 on Pt and Ru, TiO2 on Ag and Pt, ZrO2 on Pt and ZrPt). 
These films include reducible and non-reducible oxides, and have been prepared and characterized experimentally, showing very unusual and interesting behaviour towards metal atoms adsorption. 
The interaction of K and Au with the metal/oxide substrates is dominated by charge-transfer aspects, where K tends to assume positive charge and Au negative charge. 
This fact reflects into a general trend where metal-supported oxide films displaying large work function (i.e. deep empty states) tend to bind K cations strongly, while supports with small work function (i.e. shallow donor
