TL;DR: In this article, the statics and dynamics of polymers confined over distances ranging from the radius of gyration of the polymer to the statistical segment length of the chains can be studied.
Abstract: Polymer nanocomposites, especially polymer-layered silicate (PLS) nanocomposites, represent a radical alternative to conventionally (macroscopically) filled polymers. Because of their nanometer-size dispersion, the nanocomposites exhibit markedly improved properties when compared with the pure polymers or conventional composites. These include increased modulus and strength, decreased gas permeability, increased solvent and heat resistance and decreased flammability. In addition to their potential applications, PLS nanocomposites are also unique model systems to study the structure and dynamics of polymers in confined environments. Using both delaminated and intercalated hybrids, the statics and dynamics of polymers confined over distances ranging from the radius of gyration of the polymer to the statistical segment length of the chains can be studied. © 1998 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

TL;DR: An overview of the development of antitumour organotin derivatives is presented and discussed for selected classes of compounds, such as tetraorganodicarboxylatodistannoxanes as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: An overview of the development of antitumour organotin derivatives is presented and discussed for selected classes of compounds, such as tetraorganodicarboxylatodistannoxanes and related diorganotin dicarboxylates, and for triorganotin carboxylates. Among the carboxylate groups used are steroidcarboxylates and other biologically relevant carboxylates. High to very high in vitro activities have been found, sometimes equalling that of doxorubicin. Solubility in water is an important issue, dominating the in vivo testing of compounds. Polar substituents, like fluorine or polyoxaalkyl moieties, improve the water solubility. Although organotin derivatives constitute a separate class of compounds, the comparison with cisplatin is inevitable. Among the observed toxicities, neurotoxicity, known from platinum cytostatics, and gastrointestinal toxicity, typical for many oncology drugs, have been detected, but to a lower extent. Further research to develop novel useful organotin antitumour compounds needs to be carried out. Copyright © 2002 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

TL;DR: The use of ferrocene in bio-organometallic chemistry has been growing rapidly, and several promising applications have been developed since ferrocenes is a stable, nontoxic compound and has good redox properties as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: Organometallic chemistry and biochemistry have been merged in the last two decades into a new field: bioorganometallic chemistry. This new research area was devoted to the synthesis of new organometallic compounds and their biological and medical effects against some types of diseases, such as cancer and malaria. For several years, the use of ferrocene in bioorganometallic chemistry has been growing rapidly, and several promising applications have been developed since ferrocene is a stable, nontoxic compound and has good redox properties. This review will focus on ferrocenyl compounds which have been biologically evaluated against certain diseases. This area has attracted many researchers due to the promising results of some ferrocene compounds in the medicinal applications. Copyright © 2007 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

TL;DR: In this paper, the state-of-the-art of metal nanoparticles is examined, and the role of stabilizers and the stabilizing principles are discussed, as well as the future perspectives of nanoparticles as catalysts are discussed.
Abstract: This perspective examines the state-of-the-art of catalysis by metal nanoparticles. We outline various methods for preparing metal nanoparticle suspensions, and highlight the role of the stabilizers and the stabilizing principles. Subsequently, we examine some catalytic applications of homometallic and bimetallic nanoparticle suspensions in a variety of reactions. The cases are divided according to the stabilizing agent: polymers, dendrimers, ionic liquids, surfactants, micelles and micoremulsions, ligands and solid supports. We explain the importance of atom/ion leaching (all too frequent in nanoparticle catalysis, especially for the catalytically active group VIII metals) and consider ways of minimizing it. The future perspectives of nanoparticles as catalysts are discussed. Copyright © 2008 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
