Adsorption of reactive orange 16 by quaternary chitosan salt (QCS) was used as a model to demonstrate the removal of reactive dyes from textile effluents. The polymer was characterized by infrared (IR), energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDXS) analyses and amount of quaternary ammonium groups. The adsorption experiments were conducted at different pH(More)
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) with the support of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) was used as a screening technique for testing the compatibility of piroxicam (4-hydroxy-2-methyl-N-(2-pyridyl)-2H-1,2-benzothiazine-3carboxamide-1,1-dioxide) with various pharmaceutical excipients for solid dosage forms. Based on the results,(More)
Bioceramic composites were obtained from chitosan and hydroxyapatite pastes synthesized at physiological temperature according to two different syntheses approaches. Usual analytical techniques (X-ray diffraction analysis, Fourier transformed infrared spectroscopy, Thermo gravimetric analysis, Scanning electron microscopy, X-ray dispersive energy analysis(More)
Chitosan biopolymer chemically modified with the complexation agent 2[-bis-(pyridylmethyl)aminomethyl]-4-methyl-6-formylphenol (BPMAMF) was employed to study the kinetics and the equilibrium adsorption of Cu(II), Cd(II), and Ni(II) metal ions as functions of the pH solution. The maximum adsorption of Cu(II) was found at pH 6.0, while the Cd(II) and Ni(II)(More)
In the present study, a new chelating adsorbent was prepared from chitosan microspheres cross-linked with glutaraldehyde by spray drying using 8-hydroxyquinoline -5 sulphonic acid as chelant agent (CTS-SX-CL). Microspheres of the new adsorbent were characterized by Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray(More)
This paper describes the encapsulation of a high molecular weight molecule rifampicin (RIF) in sodium alginate/chitosan microparticles, which provided controlled-release when evaluated in vitro. The microparticles were prepared by the coacervation technique. To evaluate and select the best encapsulation method two approaches were applied: coacervation (MCP(More)
The purpose of this study was to produce aspirin-impregnated microspheres of chitosan/poly(acrylic acid) copolymer in order to evaluate the release characteristics as a function of pH, simulating the fluids in the gastrointestinal tract. Chitosan microspheres were obtained by the coacervation-phase separation method, induced by the addition of a non-solvent(More)
The lipid lowering activity of chitosan associated with Aloe vera L. or hydrosoluble chitosan with Brassica olearaceae L. has been studied in rats. In this study, rats were submitted to different treatments with hydrosoluble chitosan alone (4% diet), hydrosoluble chitosan associated with Aloe vera L. or hydrosoluble chitosan with Brassica olearaceae L.(More)
Effluents from coal mining operations are not only highly acid but also depict elevated concentrations of metals which may contaminate the environment. Due to the polybasic characteristic of chitosan, this biopolymer is capable of both neutralizing and removing iron, aluminum and copper ions from such effluents. The present study aimed at evaluating the use(More)
Magnetic particles of iron oxide have been increasingly used in medical diagnosis by magnetic resonance imaging and in cancer therapies involving targeted drug delivery and magnetic hyperthermia. In this study we report the preparation and characterization of iron oxide particles coated with bioceramic hydroxyapatite by spray-drying. The iron oxide magnetic(More)
