Controllable Synthesis of Pure-Phase LaFeO3 with Porous,Structure and their Catalytic Performance for Pollutants Degradation

Humayun M1*, Raziq F2, Khan A3 and Ali F4
In this work, we have successfully synthesized large scale controlled size porous LaFeO3 (P- LFO) nanoparticles by sol-gel method using different amount carbon nanospheres (CNS) as a template. For comparison, we have also synthesized non-porous LaFeO3 (NP-LFO) nanoparticles. Based on our experimental results, it is clearly demonstrated that the photocatalytic activity of P-LFO nanoparticles for phenol...

High-Specific Electrochemical Detection of BRCA1 GeneSequence using Methylene Blue Hybridization Indicator

Xiaofan Sun, Yiping Zhang, Yaping Tian and Nandi Zhou*
A high-specific and high-sensitive electrochemical DNA biosensor for human breast cancer susceptibility gene 1 (BRCA1) was developed by using methylene blue (MB) as hybridization indicator. A specially designed capture probe with a thiol group at its 5’-end was firstly self-assembled on gold electrode through Au-S bond. In the solution with high ionic strength, MB combined with the capture probe through its interaction with guanine....
