Antibacterial properties of silk fibroin/chitosan blend films loaded with plant extract
(Korean Fiber Society, 2010-03)
The silk fibroin (SF)/chitosan (CHI) blend films were prepared by dissolving them in formic acid. The morphology of the films was examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The roughness of the membranes was determined ...
Properties of n-eicosane-loaded silk fibroin-chitosan microcapsules
PCM microcapsules containing n-eicosane were prepared by complex coacervation of silk fibroin (SF) and chitosan (CHI). Chemical characterization of microcapsules was carried out using Fourier-transform infrared (FT-IR) ...
Chitosan-polyoxometalate nanocomposites: Synthesis, characterization and application as antimicrobial agents
Polyoxometalates (POMs) were used, together with chitosan (CS), to obtain hybrid nanoaggregates. Three representative POMs were efficiently assembled into nanoparticles of few hundred nm diameter, featuring entangled ribbons ...
Hypericum perforatum incorporated chitosan films as potential bioactive wound dressing material
Recent studies in wound dressing applications offer new therapies and promote wound healing process. The aim of this study was to develop Hypericum perforatum (St John's Wort) oil incorporated chitosan films for wound ...
Chitosan-immobilized pumice for the removal of As(V) from waters
A novel sorbent, chitosan-immobilized pumice, has been prepared for the sorption of As(V) from waters prior to its determination by hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry. The success of the immobilization has ...
Designing of spherical chitosan nano-shells with micellar cores for solvation and safeguarded delivery of strongly lipophilic drugs
Chitosan is a very effective biopolymer for drug delivery purposes due to its biocompatibility, positive charge and exceptionally pH sensitive degradability behavior in an aqueous medium. Nevertheless, its inability for ...
