  • 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 ...
  • Zinc phosphate-based nanoparticles as alternatives to zinc oxide in diet of weaned piglets 

    Kočiová, Silvia; Doleželíková, Kristýna; Horký, Pavel; Skaličková, Sylvie; Baholet, Daria; Bozděchová, Lucie; Václavková, Eva; Bělková, Jaroslava; Nevrkla, Pavel; Skládanka, Jiří; Do, Tomáš; Zítka, Ondřej; Haddad, Yazan Abdulmajeed Eyadh; Kopel, Pavel; Žůrek, Luděk; Adam, Vojtěch; Šmerková, Kristýna (BioMed Central, 2020-06-09)
    Background The high doses of zinc oxide (ZnO) administered orally to piglets for the prevention of diarrhea and increase of growth rate can contaminate pig farms and the surrounding environment. Therefore, there is a need ...
  • 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 ...
