A kinetic study was carried out on the anaerobic digestion of olive-mill wastewater (OMW) and OMW that was previously fermented with Aspergillus terreus. The bioreactors used were batch fed and contained saponite as support for the mediating bacteria. The anaerobic digestion process followed first-order kinetics, from which the kinetic constant A was(More)
The high corrosion rate of magnesium alloys is the main drawback to their widespread use, especially in biomedical applications. There is a need for developing new coatings that provide simultaneously corrosion resistance and enhanced biocompatibility. In this work, a composite coating containing polyether imide, with several diethylene triamine and(More)
Materials filled with a silicate glass (MSi) and a borate glass (MB) were developed and compared in terms of their in vitro behavior. The effect of filler composition and concentration (0, 30, 40 and 50 wt%) on the curing parameters, residual monomer, water uptake, weight loss, bioactivity, mechanical properties (bending and compression) and osteoblast(More)
The solid phase of bioactive self-curing acrylic cements was modified by different biodegradable fillers such as poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) and its copolymer with hydroxyvalerate (PHBV). The addition of the biodegradable fillers made the cement partially degradable, which is important to allow new bone replacement and ingrowth. The thermal analysis,(More)
In this work a biofunctional composite coating architecture for controlled corrosion activity and enhanced cellular adhesion of AZ31 Mg alloys is proposed. The composite coating consists of a polycaprolactone (PCL) matrix modified with nanohydroxyapatite (HA) applied over a nanometric layer of polyetherimide (PEI). The protective properties of the coating(More)
Young Engineer Satellite YES2 is a project promoted by Delta-Utec and supported by European Space Agency opened to university students all around the World. The aim of YES2 is to build a spacecraft capable to safety land from space onto European soil, so it does not hurt anybody neither the payload breaks. Besides safety, quick and easy recovery after(More)
Long-term in vivo studies in murine models have shown that DMSA-coated nanoparticles accumulate in spleen, liver and lung tissues during extended periods of time (at least up to 3 months) without any significant signs of toxicity detected. During that time, nanoparticles undergo a process of biotransformation either by reducing the size or the particle(More)
