エアロゾル学会・高橋幹二賞 TAKAHASHI AWARD (Japan Association of Aerosol Sci. & Tech.) “Deposition of submicron aerosol particles by a closed-loop flow system” 閉ループ式エアロゾル流によるサブミクロン粒子の沈着

本論文で示された知見により、沈着効率が悪い従来法に代わって本手法を気液界面細胞曝露に応用できれば有用である。The method presented here may potentially be applied for the deposition and analysis of submicron particles on various types of substrate (i.e. air-liquid interface) without the need for vacuum imaging analysis (e.g. electron microscopy).

親水性表面への数μmのエアロゾル液滴の沈着 Micrometer-sized aerosols/ droplets on a hydrophilic surface

大気に浮遊する微粒子の沈着の場所について考えてみた。実験の結果より、”Wet”微粒子は「親水性の高い」場所に多く沈着する。”Dry”微粒子”は「親水性の低い」場所に多く沈着する。We have considered the location of the deposition of particles suspended in the air. From the results of the experiment: “More hydrophilic” area trapped more “wet” particles. The “less hydrophilic” area trapped more “dry” particles.

著書 Nanoparticles Carrying Biological Molecules (Book Chapter)

The conjugation of nanoparticles and biomolecules has found applications in bioimaging, biocatalysis, drug delivery, and biosensors. ナノ粒子と生体分子の「共役」は、バイオイメージング、生体触媒、薬物送達、バイオセンサーなどの分野で応用が見出されている。


Point-1.「繊維の隙間より小さい粒子はマスクのフィルターを通過する」は間違い “Particles smaller than the fiber gap pass through the filter of the mask” is not accurate

Point-2. 大事なことはマスクのフィルター性能より,マスクの縁と顔表面との隙間からの漏れ(侵入)を少しでもなくすこと。It is important to eliminate the leakage (intrusion) from the gap between the mask edge and the face surface, rather than the filter performance of the mask.
