Bionanocomposite materials, combining the properties of biopolymers and nanostructured materials, are attracting interest of the wider scientific community due to their potential application in design of implants, drug delivery systems, and tissue design platforms. Herein, we report on the use of maleimide-coated silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) as(More)
Organosolv lignin, obtained from olive tree pruning under optimized conditions, was subjected to a hydrothermal depolymerization process catalyzed by sodium hydroxide. The depolymerization of lignin was carried out at 300°C using different reaction times (20, 40, 60, 70, 80, 90, and 100 min) in order to study the influence of this parameter on lignin(More)
Precursors of polyurethane chains have been reacted by means of in situ polymerization with organically modified montmorillonite clay to obtain polyurethane nanocomposites containing from 1 to 4 wt % of nanoreinforcement. The effective final dispersion of inorganic component at nanometric scale was investigated by X-ray diffraction, atomic force microscopy,(More)
