Layer-by-layer surface modification of polyethersulfone membranes using polyelectrolytes and AgCl/TiO2 xerogels
In this study, the layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly method was employed to modify a commercial polyethersulfone (PES) membrane by successive adsorption of chitosan and alginate as cationic and anionic polyelectrolytes. To ...
Responsive pentablock copolymers for siRNA delivery
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
In this study, temperature and pH responsive cationic and amphiphilic pentablock copolymers, which consist of the temperature responsive triblock Pluronic F127 sandwiched between pH responsive PDEAEM (poly(2-diethylaminoethyl ...
Immobilization of superoxide dismutase/catalase onto polysulfone membranes to suppress hemodialysis-induced oxidative stress: A comparison of two immobilization methods
The objective of this study is to improve the blood compatibility of polysulfone (PSF) based hemodialysis membranes through generating antioxidative surfaces with superoxide dismutase (SOD)/catalase (CAT) enzyme couple ...
A step forward to a more efficient wastewater treatment by membrane surface modification via polymerizable bicontinuous microemulsion
An innovative hydrophilic and anti-fouling coating material for application in membrane technology for wastewater treatment has been developed by polymerization of a polymerizable bicontinuous microemulsion (PBM) and used ...
