Causes of bone deficiency are numerous, but biomimetic alloplastic grafts provide an alternative to repair tissue naturally. Previously, a hydroxyapatite-gelatin modified siloxane (HAp-Gemosil) composite was prepared by cross-linking (N, N'-bis[(3-trimethoxysilyl)propyl]ethylene diamine (enTMOS) around the HAp-Gel nanocomposite particles, to mimic the(More)
Iron oxide nanoparticles (NPs) with a diameter 21.6 nm were coated with poly(maleic acid-alt-1-octadecene) (PMAcOD) modified with grafted 5,000 Da poly(ethyelene glycol) (PEG) or short ethylene glycol (EG) tails. The coating procedure utilizes hydrophobic interactions of octadecene and oleic acid tails, while the hydrolysis of maleic anhydride moieties as(More)
Modification of iron oxide nanoparticles (NPs) synthesized by high temperature solvothermal routes is carried out using two silanes: (i) N-(6-aminohexyl)-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (AHAPS) where only one end of the molecule reacts with the surface Fe-OH groups and (ii) 3-(triethoxysilyl)propylsuccinic anhydride (SSA) where both ends are reactive with(More)
Iron oxide nanoparticles (NPs) with diameters of 16.1, 20.5, and 20.8 nm prepared from iron oleate precursors were coated with poly(maleic acid-alt-1-octadecene) (PMAcOD). The coating procedure exploited hydrophobic interactions of octadecene and oleic acid tails while hydrolysis of maleic anhydride moieties allowed the NP hydrophilicity. The PMAcOD(More)
Aqueous solutions of iron oxide nanoparticles (NPs) stabilized by poly(maleic acid-alt-1-octadecene) (PMAcOD) modified with the 5,000 Da poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) or the short ethylene glycol (EG) tails were analyzed by small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). Advanced SAXS data analysis methods were employed to systematically characterize the structure and(More)
To further improve the physical strength and biomedical applicability of bioceramicsbuilt on hydroxyapatite-gelatin (HAp-Gel) and siloxane sol-gel reactions, we incorporated mussel adhesive inspired polydopamine (PD) into our original composite based on HAp-Gel cross-linked with siloxane. Surprisingly, with the addition of PD, we observed that the(More)
Dopamine, perhaps the simplest molecule that covalently links catechol and amine, together with its derivatives, has shown impressive adhesive and coating properties with its polymers. However, the scope of the molecules is rather limited, and the polymerization mechanisms are still elusive. We designed a general synthetic scheme and successfully(More)
