Electrospun nanofibers functionalized with cyclodextrins and their potential applications
(The Fiber Society, 2012)
Electrospinning of nanofibers from non-polymeric systems : electrospun nanofibers from native cyclodextrins
Electrospinning of nanofibers from non-polymeric systems is rather challenging, yet in this study, we have successfully performed electrospinning of nanofibers from two of the native cyclodextrins (CDs); α-CD and β-CD. ...
Encapsulation of active agents in electrospun nanofibers/nanowebs
(The Fiber Society, 2013)
In this study, we produce functional nanofibers/nanowebs containing active agents such as essential oils, antibacterials, antioxidants, flavors/fragrances via electrospinning technique. The encapsulation of these active ...
In vivo safety evaluations of electrospun nanofibers for biomedical applications
(Elsevier Inc., 2017)
In this chapter, we have highlighted an overview on the different types of in vivo studies and clinical trials conducted using electrospun nanofibrous materials, which are intended for various biomedical applications. ...
Electrospinning of polymer-free nanofibers from cyclodextrin inclusion complexes
(American Chemical Society, 2011)
The electrospinning of polymer-free nanofibers from highly concentrated (160%, w/v) aqueous solutions of hydroxypropyl-β-cyclodextrin (HPβCD) and its inclusion complexes with triclosan (HPβCD/triclosan-IC) was achieved ...
Fabrication of cellulose acetate/polybenzoxazine cross-linked electrospun nanofibrous membrane for water treatment
Herein, polybenzoxazine based cross-linked cellulose acetate nanofibrous membrane exhibiting enhanced thermal/mechanical properties and improved adsorption efficiency was successfully produced via electrospinning and thermal ...
Electrospun porous cellulose acetate fibers from volatile solvent mixture
Electrospun porous cellulose acetate (CA) fibers were produced from highly volatile binary solvent system; dichloromethane(DCM)/acetone. The morphology and porous structure of CA fibers were highly dependent on DCM/acetone ...
Cross-linked main-chain polybenzoxazine nanofibers by photo and thermal curing; stable at high temperatures and harsh acidic conditions
In this study, for the first time cross-linking of linear aliphatic diamine-based main-chain polybenzoxazine (MCPBz) electrospun nanofibers were accomplished by two-step approach consisting of photo and thermal curing. ...
Cyclodextrin short-nanofibers using sacrificial electrospun polymeric matrix for VOC removal
Cyclodextrins (CD) are cyclic oligosaccharides that can form noncovalent host-guest inclusion complexes to yield intriguing supramolecular structures. Electrospinning of nanofibers from CD is challenging since they are ...
Core-shell nanofibers of curcumin/cyclodextrin inclusion complex and polylactic acid: enhanced water solubility and slow release of curcumin
Core-shell nanofibers were designed via electrospinning using inclusion complex (IC) of model hydrophobic drug (curcumin, CUR) with cyclodextrin (CD) in the core and polymer (polylactic acid, PLA) in the shell (cCUR/HPβC ...
