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 ...
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 ...
Antioxidant activity and photostability of α-tocopherol/β-cyclodextrin inclusion complex encapsulated electrospun polycaprolactone nanofibers
Cyclodextrin inclusion complexes (CD-ICs) can be encapsulated into electrospun nanofibers in order to achieve delivery systems having high surface area and highly porous nanofibrous structures. In this study, a well-known ...
Ultrafast on-site selective visual detection of TNT at sub-ppt level using fluorescent gold cluster incorporated single nanofiber
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
In this communication, a fluorescent gold cluster incorporated electrospun nanofibrous membrane and single nanofiber for selective and sensitive detection of TNT at sub-ppt level are demonstrated.
One-step synthesis of size-tunable Ag nanoparticles incorporated in electrospun PVA/cyclodextrin nanofibers
(Pergamon Press, 2014)
One-step synthesis of size-tunable silver nanoparticles (Ag-NP) incorporated into electrospun nanofibers was achieved. Initially, in situ reduction of silver salt (AgNO3) to Ag-NP was carried out in aqueous solution of ...
Polymer-free electrospun nanofibers from sulfobutyl ether7-beta-cyclodextrin (SBE7-β-CD) inclusion complex with sulfisoxazole: fast-dissolving and enhanced water-solubility of sulfisoxazole
In this study, our aim was to develop solid drug-cyclodextrin inclusion complex system having nanofibrous morphology in order to have fast-dissolving property and enhanced water-solubility of poorly water-soluble drug. ...
Electrospinning of cyclodextrin/linalool-inclusion complex nanofibers: fast-dissolving nanofibrous web with prolonged release and antibacterial activity
The volatility and limited water solubility of linalool is a critical issue to be solved. Here, we demonstrated the electrospinning of polymer-free nanofibrous webs of cyclodextrin/linalool-inclusion complex (CD/linalool-IC-NFs). ...
Antibacterial electrospun nanofibers from triclosan/cyclodextrin inclusion complexes
The electrospinning of nanofibers (NF) from cyclodextrin inclusion complexes (CD-IC) with an antibacterial agent (triclosan) was achieved without using any carrier polymeric matrix. Polymer-free triclosan/CD-IC NF were ...
