  • Voltammetry as a Tool for Characterization of CdTe Quantum Dots 

    Adam, Pavlína; Vaculovičová, Markéta; Hubálek, Jaromír; Adam, Vojtěch; Kizek, René (MDPI, 2013-06-27)
    Electrochemical detection of quantum dots (QDs) has already been used in numerous applications. However, QDs have not been well characterized using voltammetry, with respect to their characterization and quantification. ...
  • Water-dispersible TiO2 nanoparticles via a biphasic solvothermal reaction method 

    Mohan, Rajneesh; Drbohlavová, Jana; Hubálek, Jaromír (Springer, 2013-12-01)
    A biphasic solvothermal reaction method has been used for the synthesis of TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs). In this method, hydrolysis and nucleation occur at the interface of organic phase (titanium (IV) n-propoxide and stearic acid ...
  • Zinc phosphate nanoparticles as an antimicrobial agent and their impact on rats microbiota 

    Kočiová, Silvia; Bytešníková, Zuzana; Horký, Pavel; Kopel, Pavel; Adam, Vojtěch; Šmerková, Kristýna (Mendel University in Brno, 2019-01-02)
    Nano minerals, especially trace minerals, are widely used in different fields, but mostly in animal systems. They can improve overall immunity and also a digestive efficacy in livestock. In this case, nanometals as nano ...
  • Zinc Phosphate Nanoparticles Preparation and Their Antimicrobial Activity 

    Kopel, Pavel; Cernei, Natalia Vladimirovna; Gagić, Milica; Horký, Pavel; Šmerková, Kristýna; Adam, Vojtěch (Tanger, 2019-02-01)
    Zinc phosphate particles were prepared by reaction of zinc nitrate with hydrogen phosphate, diphosphate and triphosphate, and characterized by Dynamic Light scattering (DLS) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Antibacterial ...
  • Zinc phosphate-based nanoparticles as a novel antibacterial agent: in vivo study on rats after dietary exposure 

    Horký, Pavel; Skaličková, Sylvie; Urbánková, Lenka; Baholet, Daria; Kočiová, Silvia; Bytešníková, Zuzana; Kabourková, Eliška; Lacková, Zuzana; Cernei, Natalia Vladimirovna; Gagić, Milica; Milosavljević, Vedran; Smolíková, Vendula; Václavková, Eva; Nevrkla, Pavel; Knot, Pavel; Kryštofová, Olga; Hynek, David; Kopel, Pavel; Skládanka, Jiří; Adam, Vojtěch; Šmerková, Kristýna (BioMed Central, 2019-02-12)
    Background: Development of new nanomaterials that inhibit or kill bacteria is an important and timely research topic. For example, financial losses due to infectious diseases, such as diarrhea, are a major concern in ...
  • The Zinc-Schiff Base-Novicidin Complex as a Potential Prostate Cancer Therapy 

    Milosavljević, Vedran; Haddad, Yazan Abdulmajeed Eyadh; Merlos Rodrigo, Miguel Ángel; Moulick, Amitava; Polanská, Hana; Hynek, David; Heger, Zbyněk; Kopel, Pavel; Adam, Vojtěch (PLOS, 2016-10-11)
    Prostate cancer cells control energy metabolism by chelating intracellular zinc. Thus, zinc delivery has been a popular therapeutic approach for prostate cancer. Here, we propose the use of the membrane-penetrating peptide ...
