Structural insights into magnetic clusters grown inside virus capsids (2014)
Journal Article
Jaafar, M., Aljabali, A. A. A., Berlanga, I., Mas-Ballesté, R., Saxena, P., Warren, S., …de Pablo, P. J. (2014). Structural insights into magnetic clusters grown inside virus capsids. ACS applied materials & interfaces, 6(23), 20936-20942. doi:10.1021/am505682x

Magnetic nanoparticles have multiple applications in materials science. In particular, virus capsids have been suggested as promising templates for building up nanometric-sized magnetic clusters by taking advantage of their inner cavity as a nanoreac... Read More

Templated mineralization by charge-modified cowpea mosaic virus (2013)
Book
Aljabali, A. A. A., & Evans, D. J. (2014). Templated mineralization by charge-modified cowpea mosaic virus. In Methods in Molecular Biology; Virus Hybrids as Nanomaterials, 89-95. Totowa, NJ: Humana Press. doi:10.1007/978-1-62703-751-8_6

Templated mineralization of virus particles provides routes to narrowly dispersed nanoparticles that are not readily prepared by other means. The templated mineralization of metal or metal oxide on the external surface of wild-type cowpea mosaic viru... Read More

Virus-templated silica nanoparticles (2009)
Journal Article
Steinmetz, N. F., Shah, S. N., Barclay, J. E., Rallapalli, G., Lomonossoff, G. P., & Evans, D. J. (2009). Virus-templated silica nanoparticles. Small, 5(7), 813-816. doi:10.1002/smll.200801348

An engineered variant of the plant virus, Cowpea mosaic virus, can template the controlled fabrication of silica nanoparticles of ≈30 nm diameter under environmentally benign conditions at ambient temperature and in aqueous solvent. This is the first... Read More
