We report novel robust resin acid-derived antimicrobial agents that exhibit excellent antimicrobial activities against a broad spectrum of bacteria (6 Gram-positive and 7 Gram-negative) with selective lysis of microbial membranes over mammalian membranes. Our results indicate that hydrophobicity and unique structures of resin acids can be determining(More)
This study examines the cyanoethylation and thermoplasticity of several cyanoethylated fiber materials. Cyanoethylated pulps with a degree of substitution of 1.43 have the lowest Vicat softening point. Cyanoethylated poplar with a weight gain of 18.2 % has the lowest melting temperature. Instead of traditional adhesives, cyanoethylated materials can be used(More)
