Interaction of silver nanoparticles with Tacaribe virus

The possibility of integrating silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) into antiviral products and therapies has received significant attention in recent years. This approach has become increasingly attractive as with the validation of antiviral efficacy at concentrations that are nonhazardous for human health. Researchers from the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) have investigated the physical mechanisms responsible for antiviral activity in nanoparticle silver, using materials from multiple sources. AgNPs from NovaCentrix were shown to offer a balance of low toxicity and effective disruption of viral infection for Tacaribe virus in a Vero cell line. This research effort highlights the importance of nanoparticle size and capping agent in the processes that regulate virus inactivation as well as toxicity to host cells.

Oxidative Print Light Synthesis Thin Film Deposition of Prussian Blue

Prussian blue (PB) and its analogues are prominent candidate electrodes in energy conversion devices. This class of materials create open ionic channels to facilitate reversible intercalation of alkali ions, improving attributes of any electrode material in ion-based batteries for charging and discharging purposes. Conventional methods to produce Prussian blue include chemical precipitation, thermal decomposition and electro-deposition processes. As an alternative, the authors have demonstrated a scalable, roll-to-roll compatible and faster process to produce Prussian blue films through inkjet-printing of the Prussian blue precursors followed by photonic curing for a few milliseconds. The inherent transiency of the photonic curing process enables this synthesis on temperature-sensitive substrates, like PET. Characterizations of the produced film confirms the oxidative print-light synthesis process can produce Prussian blue films using NovaCentrix’s PulseForge® photonic curing tools for electrode material of ion-based batteries.
