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 ...
Glycosaminoglycan-Mimetic Signals Direct the Osteo/Chondrogenic Differentiation of Mesenchymal Stem Cells in a Three-Dimensional Peptide Nanofiber Extracellular Matrix Mimetic Environment
(American Chemical Society, 2016-02)
Recent efforts in bioactive scaffold development focus strongly on the elucidation of complex cellular responses through the use of synthetic systems. Designing synthetic extracellular matrix (ECM) materials must be based ...
Self-assembled peptide nanostructures for functional materials
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2016)
Nature is an important inspirational source for scientists, and presents complex and elegant examples of adaptive and intelligent systems created by self-assembly. Significant effort has been devoted to understanding these ...
One-dimensional peptide nanostructure templated growth of iron phosphate nanostructures for lithium-ion battery cathodes
(American Chemical Society, 2016-06)
Template-directed synthesis of nanomaterials can provide benefits such as small crystalline size, high surface area, large surface-to-volume ratio, and structural stability. These properties are important for shorter ...
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. ...
Peptide nanofiber scaffolds for multipotent stromal cell culturing

Self-assembled peptide nanofibers are versatile materials providing suitable platforms for regenerative medicine applications. This chapter describes the use of peptide nanofibers as extracellular matrix mimetic scaffolds ...
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 ...
