Highly effective photodynamic inactivation of E. coli using gold nanorods/SiO2 core-shell nanostructures with embedded verteporfin

, : Highly effective photodynamic inactivation of E. coli using gold nanorods/SiO2 core-shell nanostructures with embedded verteporfin. Chemical Communications 51(91): 16365-8

The potential of gold nanorods post-coated with a 20 nm silica shell loaded with verteporfin (Au NRs@SiO2-VP) as efficient near-infrared nanostructures for photodynamic therapy under continuous wave and pulsed-mode excitation to eradicate a virulent strain of E. coli associated with urinary tract infection is described.

Theories applied to work stress predict that coping will mediate and support will moderate the impact of work demands on worker well-being. We explored the mediating and moderating effects of coping and support on the relationship between perceive...
