Encapsulation of vanillin/cyclodextrin inclusion complex in electrospun polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) nanowebs: prolonged shelf-life and high temperature stability of vanillin
We produced functional nanowebs, containing vanillin, having prolonged shelf-life and high temperature stability facilitated by cyclodextrin (CD) inclusion complexation. Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) nanowebs incorporating ...
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.
Toxicity of lanthanum oxide (La2O3) nanoparticles in aquatic environments
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
This study demonstrates the acute toxicity of lanthanum oxide nanoparticles (La2O3 NP) on two sentinel aquatic species, fresh-water microalgae Chlorella sp. and the crustacean Daphnia magna. The morphology, size and charge ...
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 ...
Drug delivery system based on cyclodextrin-naproxen inclusion complex incorporated in electrospun polycaprolactone nanofibers
In this study, we select naproxen (NAP) as a reference drug and electrospun poly (e-caprolactone) (PCL) nanofibers as a fibrous matrix for our drug-delivery system. NAP was complexed with beta-cyclodextrin (βCD) to form ...
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 ...
Molecular entrapment of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by electrospun cyclodextrin nanofibers
In this paper, we reported the molecular entrapment performance of hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin (HPβCD) and hydroxypropyl-gamma-cyclodextrin (HPγCD) electrospun nanofibers (NF) for two common volatile organic compounds ...
Pd nanocube decoration onto flexible nanofibrous mats of core-shell polymer-ZnO nanofibers for visible light photocatalysis
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
Plasmonic enhancement for electron-hole separation efficiency and visible light photocatalysis was achieved by Pd nanocube decoration on a ZnO nanolayer coated onto electrospun polymeric (polyacrylonitrile (PAN)) nanofibers. ...
Bacteria encapsulated electrospun nanofibrous webs for remediation of methylene blue dye in water
In this study, preparation and application of novel biocomposite materials that were produced by encapsulation of bacterial cells within electrospun nanofibrous webs are described. A commercial strain of Pseudomonas ...
Antibacterial electrospun zein nanofibrous web encapsulating thymol/cyclodextrin-inclusion complex for food packaging
Thymol (THY)/γ-Cyclodextrin(γ-CD) inclusion complex (IC) encapsulated electrospun zein nanofibrous webs (zein-THY/γ-CD-IC-NF) were fabricated as a food packaging material. The formation of THY/γ-CD-IC (1:1 and 2:1) was ...
