Hydroxyapatite (HAP) is undoubtedly a material suitable for repairing the defective bone tissue. However, the brittleness and non-malleability of HAP limit its clinical application as a cranioplastic analogue. To improve these properties, pliable, osteoconductive composites composed of HAP and ethylene vinyl acetate co-polymer (EVA) have been developed.(More)
A green straight forward method of synthesizing silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in an aqueous medium was designed using Emblica officinalis (EO) fruit extract as stabilizer and reducer. The formation of AgNPs depends on the effect of extract concentration and pH were studied. The AgNPs was synthesized using E.officinalis (fruit extract) and nanoparticles were(More)
Waste fruit peel mediated synthesis of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) is a green chemistry approach that links nanotechnology and biotechnology. Using biological medium such as peel extract for the biosynthesis of nanoparticles is an ecofriendly and emerging scientific trend. With this back drop the present study focused on the biosynthesis of AgNPs using(More)
In this work an in vitro degradable poly(ester-urethane)urea (PEUU) was synthesized using polycaprolactone diol, hexamethylene diisocyanate, and calcium salt of p-aminobenzoic acid. The synthesized polymer was characterized by (1) H-NMR and FTIR spectroscopy and viscosity studies. Scaffolds having random micro fibrous structures were fabricated from PEUU by(More)
Biosynthesis of metal nanoparticles is the present research in the limb of nanotechnology which reduces the toxicity of metal nanoparticles. Green chemistry approach emphasizes that the usage of plant material has offered a reliable, simple, nontoxic and eco-friendly that links Nanotechnology and Biotechnology. Increasing environmental concerns over(More)
A simple high-performance liquid chromatography method is adopted in order to quantitate the amount of zinc diethyldithiocarbamate (ZDEC) released into artificial sweat from natural rubber latex vulcanizates. The artificial sweat is extracted with dichloromethane, and the residue is recovered and re-dissolved in a known quantity of dichloromethane. ZDEC is(More)
The in vitro functionality of surface phosphorylated poly(hydroxy ethyl methacrylate-co-methyl methacrylate), poly(HEMA-co-MMA) to induce bioinspired mineralization of calcium phosphate phase is evaluated. The primary nucleation of calcium phosphate on the surface phosphorylated copolymer occurs within 3 days of immersion when immersed in 1.5x simulated(More)
Three commercially available urinary catheters were evaluated for their coefficient of friction and mechanical properties, which are two important parameters as far as the intended use is considered. The apparent coefficient of friction was measured from the slope of the force versus normal load graph using an in-house fabricated setup. The mechanical(More)
Good transparent single crystals of L-phenylalanine L-phenylalaninium malonate (LPPMA) have been grown successfully by slow evaporation technique from aqueous solution. Single crystal X-ray diffractometer was utilized to measure unit cell parameter and to confirm the crystal structure. The chemical structure of compound was established by FT-NMR technique.(More)
