In this study, cellulose based scaffolds were produced by electrospinning of cellulose acetate (CA) solution followed by its saponification with NaOH/ethanol system for 24h. The resulting nonwoven cellulose mat was treated with sodium borohydride (SB) solution. In situ hydrolysis of SB solution into the pores of the membrane produced hydrogen gas resulting(More)
Non-precipitation chitosan/silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in 1% acetic acid aqueous solution was prepared from chitosan colloidal gel with various contents of silver nitrate via electron beam irradiation (EBI). Electrospun chitosan-based nanofibers decorated with AgNPs were successfully performed by blending poly(vinyl alcohol). The morphology of as-prepared(More)
In this study, a fly ash based composite, Ag-iron oxide/fly ash, was synthesized via a facile one-pot hydrothermal process using fly ash, ferrous chloride, and silver nitrate as precursors. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), EDX, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy(More)
The objective of the current work is to incorporate calcium lactate (CL) into polycaprolactone (PCL)/zein composite micro/nanofibrous scaffolds via electrospinning to engineer bone tissue. In this study, a composite micro/nano fibrous scaffold was fabricated using a single two-nozzle electrospinning system to combine indicative nanofibers from a blended(More)
The bursting strength is a key parameter to assess hemostatic ability of tissue sealants. It is associated to mechanical property of the materials, the binding strength of the materials to the tissues as well as the applied conditions of the materials, such as temperature and wound size. Few works have systematically investigated the relationship of the(More)
