Electrospun nanofibers as dressings for chronic wound care: advances, challenges, and future prospects.
Chronic non-healing wounds show delayed and incomplete healing processes and in turn expose patients to a high risk of infection. Treatment currently focuses on dressings that prevent microbialExpand

Covalent Attachment of Poly(ethylene glycol) to Surfaces, Critical for Reducing Bacterial Adhesion
The effects of different poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) attachment strategies upon the adhesion of a Gram-negative bacteria (Pseudomonas sp.) was tested. PEG was covalently immobilized, at the lowerExpand

Surfaces that resist bioadhesion
Abstract The search for surfaces that resist bioadhesion has continued with the pursuit of a number of avenues. A large part of the studies has investigated PEG coatings. Nevertheless, there is stillExpand

Cyclodextrin functionalized poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) electrospun nanofibers for organic vapo
Abstract Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) nanofibers containing the inclusion complex forming beta-cyclodextrin (β-CD) were successfully produced by means of electrospinning in order to developExpand

Effects of cloud-point grafting, chain length, and density of PEG layers on competitive adsorption of ocular proteins.
The effects of pinning density, chain length, and 'cloud point' (CP) versus non-CP grafting conditions have been studied on the ability of polyethylene glycol (PEG) layers to minimize adsorption fromExpand

Ultrasensitive probing of the protein resistance of PEG surfaces by secondary ion mass spectrometry.
The highly sensitive surface analytical techniques X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and time-of-flight static secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) were used to test the resistance ofExpand

Enhancing the formation and shear resistance of nitrifying biofilms on membranes by surface modification.
Polypropylene (PP) membranes and polyethylene (PE) surfaces were modified to enhance formation and shear resistance of nitrifying biofilms for wastewater treatment applications. A combination ofExpand
