Bacterial cellulose nanocrystals exhibiting high thermal stability and their polymer nanocomposites.
The BCNC obtained through cellulose treatment under controlled conditions were associated with several desirable properties and appear to be superior over the conventional methods of nanocrystals production. Expand
Hybrid HPMC nanocomposites containing bacterial cellulose nanocrystals and silver nanoparticles.
Moisture sorption analysis proved that the hydrophilicity of the nanocomposite decreased considerably by the addition of these nanomaterials, which is expected to be useful in eco-friendly food packaging applications. Expand
Novel PAAm/Laponite clay nanocomposite hydrogels with improved cationic dye adsorption behavior
Abstract A nanocomposite (NC) hydrogel was prepared by incorporating the nanoclay (Laponite (Lap) XLS) into a poly(acrylamide) (PAAm) hydrogel by the in situ polymerization method without any organicExpand
Feasibility of Polyvinyl Alcohol as a Transdermal Drug Delivery System for Terbutaline Sulphate
A series of terbutaline sulphate drug incorporated polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) matrix films were produced by the solvent evaporation method. The effect of xanthan gum and plasticizers (propylene glycolExpand
Influence of SiO2 Fillers on Sliding Wear Resistance and Mechanical Properties of Compression Moulded Glass Epoxy Composites
The E-glass woven fabric-epoxy (LY 556) (GE) composites have been fabricated with varying amounts of silicon oxide (SiO2) particulate filler viz., 3, 6 and 9 wt % by compression molding followed byExpand
Mechanical and three-body abrasive wear behaviour of three-dimensional glass fabric reinforced vinyl ester composite
Abstract The mechanical and three-body abrasive wear behaviour of two- and three-dimensional E-glass woven fabric reinforced vinyl ester composites were studied in this article. The mechanicalExpand
High performance edible nanocomposite films containing bacterial cellulose nanocrystals
Abstract Bacterial cellulose obtained from Gluconacetobacter xylinus in the form of long fibers were acid hydrolyzed under controlled conditions to obtain cellulose nanocrystals. TransmissionExpand
Augmented properties of PVA hybrid nanocomposites containing cellulose nanocrystals and silver nanoparticles
PVA nanocomposites containing cellulose nanocrystals and silver nanoparticles have been prepared and their properties were investigated. Even though bacterial cellulose nanocrystals (BCNC) improvedExpand
Structure–property relation in polyvinyl alcohol/starch composites
A series of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)/starch films were cast by the solvent method. Mechanical, optical, wide-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS), and biodegradation studies of starch-filled PVA filmsExpand
Swelling behavior of polyacrylamide/laponite clay nanocomposite hydrogels: pH-sensitive property
Abstract In this study, an investigation is carried out on the influence of varying clay contents (25–43%), pH values (2–11 buffer solutions), heat treatment, temperatures (25–60 °C) and ionicExpand
