Catalase, a kind of redox enzyme and generally recognized as an efficient agent for protecting cells against hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced cytotoxicity. The immobilization of catalase was accomplished by depositing the positively charged chitosan and the negatively charged catalase on electrospun cellulose nanofibrous mats through electrospining and(More)
The composite nanoparticles (NPs) consisted of quaternized chitosan (QC)/bovine serum albumin (BSA)/rectorite (REC) were prepared successfully just by adding BSA solution into QC-REC nanocomposites solution via electrostatic interactions. The average diameter of NPs increased with the accretion of REC, which was demonstrated with dynamic laser scattering(More)
Deacetylation adversely affected the solubility of konjac glucomannan (KGM). Herein the dissolution behavior of deacetylated KGM (da-KGM) was studied in 10 wt% urea solution at various temperatures. KGM with different degrees of deacetylation (DD) could be well dissolved at -4°C. Low temperature was conducive to the dissolution of da-KGM. The result from(More)
Positively charged N-[(2-hydroxy-3-trimethylammonium) propyl] chitosan chloride (HTCC) and negatively charged soy protein isolate (SPI) were alternately assembled on cellulose acetate (CA) electrospun nanofibrous mats via electrostatic layer-by-layer self-assembly technique. CA nanofibrous mats coated with bilayers of HTCC and SPI possessed more(More)
Silk fibroin (SF) has become a promising biomaterial in guided bone regeneration (GBR). In an attempt to modify the size of the gaps on the surface of SF barrier membrane and improve its antibacterial activity, biological and mechanical properties, positively charged Lysozyme (LY)-Collagen Type-I (COL) composites and negatively charged SF were introduced to(More)
In this study, polyethylene terephthalate/polypropylene (PET/PP) films were treated via atmospheric pressure plasma, assembled with chitosan and various preservatives and applied for antimicrobial food packaging. Surface properties of these obtained films were studied by contact angle measurement, atomic force microscopy (ATM), X-ray photoelectron(More)
By combining the initial solvent volatilization and ultimate calcination to form highly nanoporous polystyrene/titanium dioxide (PS/TiO2) composite nanofibrous mats were fabricated via electrospinning, then the PS was removed afterwards by calcination, and finally porous TiO2 nanofibers were formed successfully. The porous structure of the nanofibers was(More)
Rectorite (REC)-encapsulated lysozyme (LY)-alginate (ALG) nanogels (NGs) were prepared by adding ALG-REC composites suspensions into LY solutions at the mass ratio of 1:2. The morphology of the NGs and the NGs-assembled nanofibrous mats were studied by transmission electron microscope and field emission scanning electron microscopy, respectively. The(More)
Pectin based composite polymer nanofabrics incorporated with rectorite (REC) were fabricated via electrospinning. Continuous and uniform nanofibers were obtained by electrospinning poly (vinyl alcohol) (PVA)-Pectin (80/20) composite solution. REC was successfully introduced to the polymer composite nanofabrics, which was confirmed by Energy-dispersive X-ray(More)
Positively charged lysozyme (LZ) and negatively charged pectin, were alternately deposited on the surface of the cellulose nanofibrous mats by layer-by-layer (LBL) self-assembly technique. Scanning electron microscopy images showed that the nanofibers were orderly and compactly arrayed after LBL. Besides, as the number of LZ/pectin bilayers increased, the(More)
