Hot-water extraction and characterization of spruce bark non-cellulosic polysaccharides
Abstract Non-cellulosic polysaccharides (NCP) from bark offer large potential as a class of natural raw materials for functional materials development and production of biochemicals. We have
Self-assembly of amphiphilic dendritic dipeptides into helical pores
A library of amphiphilic dendritic dipeptides that self-assemble in solution and in bulk through a complex recognition process into helical pores is described, finding that the molecular recognition and self-assembly process is sufficiently robust to tolerate a range of modifications to the amphiphile structure.
A strategy for the covalent functionalization of resorbable polymers with heparin and osteoinductive growth factor.
The chemical strategy presented herein is the nondestructive preparation of resorbable polymer scaffolds with heparin covalently bonded to the surface and an osteoinductive growth factor, recombinant
In Situ Synthesis of Magnetic Field-Responsive Hemicellulose Hydrogels for Drug Delivery
Magnetic field-responsive hemicellulose hydrogels, prepared using a straightforward one-step process, expand the applications of biomass-derived polysaccharides by combining the renewability of hemiceLLulose and the magnetism of Fe3O4 nanoparticles.
Degradable polymer microspheres for controlled drug delivery
This review is concerned with degradable polymers for use in controlled drug delivery with emphasis on the preparation, applications, biocompatibility, and stability of microspheres from hydrolytically degradably polymers.
Barrier films from renewable forestry waste.
Biobased free-standing films and coatings with low oxygen permeability were designed from a wood hydrolysate according to a recovery and formulation procedure that provides added value to wood converting industrial processes and show promising property profiles for renewable packaging applications.
Copolymerization and polymer blending of trimethylene carbonate and adipic anhydride for tailored drug delivery
Conventional drug administration technologies display poorcontrollability, and lead to high plasma concentrations andshort duration times, which frequently lead to adverse effects.Controlled release
Morphology engineering of a novel poly(L-lactide)/poly(1,5-dioxepan-2-one) microsphere system for controlled drug delivery
Morphology is presented as a powerful tool to control the in vitro degradation and drug release characteristics of novel drug delivery microspheres prepared from homopolymer blends of 1,5-dioxepan-
