Book Description :

Smart agriculture refers to the application of a fourth industrial revolution in agriculture (Agriculture 4.0). It refers to a fully automated and autonomous agriculture, achieved by using various new technologies, such as the internet of things, big data, and artificial intelligence. In this regard, smart sensors and their wireless networks are important components of Agriculture 4.0. Nanosensors can offer many advantages over their micro counterparts, such as lower power consumption, higher sensitivity, lower concentration of analytes, and smaller interaction distances between the object and sensor. In addition, with the support of artificial intelligence (AI) tools (such as fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms, neural networks, and ambient-intelligence), sensor systems have currently become smarter. This book provides information on the fundamental design concepts and emerging applications of nanosensors in smart agriculture. It shows how, when cultivating soil, nanosensors and their wireless networks can be used for soil quality monitoring (moisture/herbicides/organic compound/trace metals monitoring in soil, etc.). It explains that, in the growing of crops, nanosensors can be used for irrigation/pest/fertilizer controls, especially in Mobile Agricultural Robot Swarms (MARS). For the raising of livestock, smart nanosensors can be used for virus detection and hygiene/pathogen controls. In logistics management, nanosensors could be used in active transport tracking devices for smart tracking and tracing. For agri-food productions, nanosensors can be used in various applications, such as (i) nanochips for identity (radio frequency identification), (ii) food inspection, (iii) intelligent food packaging, and (iv) smart storage. This is an important reference source for materials scientists and agricultural engineers who are looking to understand more about how nanosensor technology can be used to create more efficient and sustainable agricultural systems. Outlines the fabrication and fundamental design concepts of nanosensors for agricultural applications. Explains how nanosensors are being used throughout the agricultural cycle – from crop growth to food manufacture. Assesses the major challenges in the application of nanosensors for agricultural applications on a mass scale.

Book Description :

Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are synthetic receptors, also known as antibody mimics, that can specifically bind target molecules. Molecular imprinting has emerged, over the last 30 years; it is an extremely versatile strategy for synthesizing networks possessing high affinity and selectivity for a chemical species, used as a molecular template during their synthesis. The wide variety of materials and formats that are accessible through this strategy has resulted in a broad spectrum of applications for such MIPs, ranging from separation to sensing, catalysis, drug delivery, etc. Since the beginning, the great majority of the imprinted networks has been synthesized by assembling vinyl monomers via free-radical polymerization (FRP). This polymerization method represents a convenient choice for synthesizing MIPs, due to its easy setup, versatility, tolerance with respect to many solvents and functional groups. However, some drawbacks greatly affect the possibility of achieving of suitable degree of control over some "polymeric" parameters which become important for specific applications. The introduction of controlled/"living" radical polymerization (CRP) techniques has then represented an opportunity for MIPs to reduce, and in some cases even to overcome, some of their limits arising from FRP. In this respect, this Ph.D. thesis has studied how the use of RAFT polymerization, one of the most applied CRPs, can be advantageously used to syntheze MIPs. This has been done by focusing on the main characteristics of CRPs: their living and controlled nature. The living nature has been exploited during the first part of this work, which involved the synthesis of superparamagnetic molecularly imprinted nanocomposites via surface-initiated RAFT polymerization of p(EGDMA-co-MAA) on amino-modified Fe3O4 nanoparticles. The polymer grafting has been performed using an unusual stirring technique (i.e. ultrasonication) during the polymerization step, and by testing different polymerization solvents for evaluating their effect on the composite structure. It has been observed that the grafting resulted in homogeneous polymer layers, the thickness of which could be controlled by adjusting the RAFT/radical source ratio. Moreover, the living nature of RAFT fragments has been exploited for post-functionalizing the surface of a composite particle with p(EGMP) brushes, thus demonstrating the potential of fine-tuning the particle surface properties through the living chain ends. In the second part of the thesis, an in-depth study has been performed on the effects induced by the use of controlled (RAFT) polymerization conditions on the binding behaviour and structural parameters of bulk acrylic and methacrylic MIPs and the corresponding non-imprinted polymers, synthesized by RAFT and FRP with varying cross-linking degree. This strategy actually provided scaffolds with progressively increased degree of flexibility (especially in the case of acrylics) which allowed visualize the enhancement of binding and structural differences arising from the polymerization technique. As a result, it has been observed that the use of controlled (RAFT) conditions induced, on the imprinted networks, an increased template affinity over equivalent FRPs, and it has been demonstrated that this improved affinity can be related to more homogeneous distributions of the cross-linking points achieved during RAFT polymerization. The third part presents preliminary results toward the synthesis by RAFT of individual multi-composite MIP nanosensors using enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) for detection.

Book Description :

This thesis is organized in three chapters and is based on three published papers, and two manuscripts about to be submitted. Molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) are tailor-made synthetic receptors that are obtained by polymerization in the presence of a molecular template. The first paper describes the use of Raman spectroscopy to detect and quantify the presence of the imprinting template in single molecularly imprinted polymer microspheres. The polymers were imprinted with the Beta-blocking drugs propranolol and atenolol, and precipitation polymerization was used to obtain spherical particles. The nanoparticles were used for bulk detection whereas with micrometer-sized particles, quantitative measurements on single particles were possible. Relatively low detection limits down to 1μM have been reached for the detection of S-propranolol through bulk measurements on MIP nanoparticles. The second paper describes chemical nanosensors with a submicron core-shell composite design, based on a polymer core, a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) shell for selective analyte recognition, and an interlayer of gold nanoparticles for signal amplification. SERS measurements on single nanosensors yielded a detection limit of 10-7 M for the Beta-blocker propranolol, several orders of magnitude lower than on plain MIP spheres. These particles were also used as sensor materials with localized surface plasmon resonance measurements as the transduction method (Paper III), for the determination of the Beta-blocking drug propranolol. The sensors were used in suspension and were measured using a standard UV-Vis spectrophotometer. In order to solve general problems associated with MIPs, in particular their heterogeneity in terms of inner morphology and distribution of binding site affinities, it has been suggested to use modern methods of controlled/living radical polymerization for their synthesis. This also facilitates their generation in the form of nanomaterials, nanocomposites, and thin films, a strong recent trend in the field. The fourth paper reviews recent advances in the molecular imprinting area, with special emphasis on the use of controlled polymerization methods, their benefits, and current limitations. In the last paper, we have for the first time used a recently developed CRP method based on iodide mediated polymerization, reversible chain transfer catalyzed polymerization (RTCP), for the synthesis of MIPs. We show on the example of MIPs specific for the Beta-blocking drug propranolol that RTCP is compatible with MIP synthesis, both for the synthesis of bulk polymers and nanospheres, and that it yields polymers with the same binding capacity as the standard FRP method used for comparison. Solid-state NMR measurements revealed that the conversion of pendant vinyl groups was higher with RTCP than with polymers synthesized by FRP, in particular at higher initiator concentrations.

Book Description :

Quantum dots (QDs) are hybrid organic/inorganic nanoparticles with novel physical properties. QDs have two components: an inorganic core and an optically active coated shell. Moreover, surface coatings can be applied to QDs to modify the particle as needed for experiments. Hydrophilic coatings prevent leaking of metal cargo from the core, enhancing the solubility in biological contexts and bind molecules, such as receptor-ligands, antibodies, therapeutic, and diagnostic macromolecules for enhanced effects. Their high surface-to-volume ratio allows multiple functional groups to attach onto the surface of the particles at constant surface volume. Silicon-, gallium-, indium-, or germanium-based; cadmium-based; and carbon-based QDs have already been used in many applications, such as imaging probes for the engineering of multifunctional nanodevices. Superior properties of QDs make them an excellent system in technology and biotechnology. This book describes electroanalytical applications of QD-based nanobiosensors, including brief information about the synthesis and characterization of QDs and basics of electroanalytical methods, followed by QDs in electrochemical biomimetic sensors, QDs in microchips, inorganic materials doped QDs, QD-based electrochemical DNA biosensors, electroluminescence for biomarker analysis using aptamer-based QDs, QD-based photoelectrochemical techniques, enzyme-based nanobiosensors using QDs, QD-based electrochemical immunosensors, and QD-modified nanosensors in drug analysis. Outlines QD-based applications for drug, food, clinical, and environmental science Shows how the properties of QDs make them effective ingredients in biosensing applications Assesses the major challenges in integrating QDs in biosensing systems

Book Description :

Advanced materials and nanotechnology is a promising, emerging field involving the use of nanoparticles to facilitate the detection of various physical and chemical parameters, including temperature, humidity, pH, metal ion, anion, small organic or inorganic molecules, gases, and biomolecules responsible for environmental issues that can lead to diseases like cancer, diabetes, osteoarthritis, bacterial infections, and brain, retinal, and cardiovascular diseases. By monitoring environmental samples and detecting these environmental issues, advanced nanotechnology in this type of sensory technology is able to improve daily quality of life. Although these sensors are commercially available for the detection of monovalent cations, anions, gases, volatile organic molecules, heavy metal ions, and toxic metal ions, many existing models require significant power and lack advanced technology for more quality selectivity and sensitivity. There is room in these sensors to optimize their selectivity, reversibility, on/off ratio, response time, and their environmental stability in real-world operating conditions. This book explores the methods for the development and design of environmentally-friendly, simple, reliable, and cost effective electrochemical nanosensors using powerful nanostructured materials. More specifically, it highlights the use of various electrochemical-based biosensor sensors involved in the detection of monovalent cations, anions, gases, volatile organic molecules, heavy metal ions, and toxic metal ions, with the ultimate goal of seeing these technologies reach market.
