The aim of this study was to prepare nonwoven materials from poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) and their antibiotic containing forms by electrospinning, so as to prevent postsurgery induced abdominal adhesions in rats. epsilon-Caprolactone was first polymerized by ring-opening polymerization, and then it was processed into matrices composed of nanofibers by(More)
The aim of this study was to prepare non-woven materials from a biodegradable polymer, poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) by electrospinning. PCL was synthesized by ring-opening polymerization of epsilon-caprolactone in bulk using stannous octoate as the catalyst under nitrogen atmosphere. PCL was then processed into non-woven matrices composed of nanofibers(More)
Catalytic palladium (Pd) nanoparticles on electrospun copolymers of acrylonitrile and acrylic acid (PAN-AA) mats were produced via reduction of PdCl2 with hydrazine. Fiber mats were electrospun from homogeneous solutions of PAN-AA and PdCl2 in dimethylformamide (DMF). Pd cations were reduced to Pd metals when fiber mats were treated in an aqueous hydrazine(More)
UV-curable, organic–inorganic hybrid coatings based on a UV-curable epoxyacrylate resin (EA) and methacryloxypropyl trimethox-ysilane were prepared by the sol–gel method. 2,2 0-Bis(4-b-hydroxy ethoxy) phenyl propane was modified by a coupling agent, 3-isocy-anato propyl triethoxy silane, to improve the compatibility of the organic and inorganic phases. The(More)
We study the causes of the observed tunable hydrophobicity of poly(styrene-co-perfluoroalkyl ethylacrylate) electrosprayed in THF, DMF, and THF:DMF (1:1) solvents. Under the assumption that equilibrium morphologies in the solvent significantly affect the patterns observed on electrosprayed surfaces, we use atomistic and coarse-grained simulations supported(More)
Conventional heterogeneous dispersion polymerizations of unsaturated monomers are performed in either aqueous or organic dispersing media with the addition of interfacially active agents to stabilize the colloidal dispersion that forms. Successful stabilization of the polymer colloid during polymerization results in the formation of high molar mass polymers(More)
A series of polycarboxylate ether-based copolymers that include acrylic acid, 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropane sulfonic acid, and polyethylene glycol-1000 was synthesized and the performance of these copolymers as rheology modifiers in aqueous alumina suspensions was characterized. We discussed the effect of monomer feed ratio and molecular weight on dispersing(More)
Multi-walled hollow fibers with a novel architecture are fabricated through utilizing a direct, one-step tri-axial electrospinning process with a manufacturing methodology which does not require any post-treatments for the removal of core material for creating hollowness in the fiber structure. The hydrophilicity of both inner and outer layers' solution(More)
Calcium aluminate cement (CAC) suffers from loss of workability in less than an hour (~15 minutes) after first touch of water. Current superplasticizers that are utilized to modify the viscosity of cement admixtures are designed to target ordinary Portland cement (OPC). The high affinity between these superplasticizers and cement particles were found to be(More)
