Preparation of Poly(vinyl Alcohol) Microparticles for Freeze Protection of Sensitive Fruit Crops
Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) displays ice recrystallization inhibition (IRI) properties as many antifreeze proteins found in cold tolerant organisms. The molecular architecture and composition
Prolonging effects of polyvinyl alcohol on drug release
Polymers are currently of interest as drug delivery systems. The use of polymeric forms of medicinal substances will eliminate or reduce the disadvantages of traditional drugs. The purpose of this
Tunable Properties via Composition Modulations of Poly(vinyl alcohol)/Xanthan Gum/Oxalic Acid Hydrogels
The design of hydrogel networks with tuned properties is essential for new innovative biomedical materials. Herein, poly(vinyl alcohol) and xanthan gum were used to develop hydrogels by the
Characterization and preliminary in vivo evaluation of a self-expandable hydrogel stent with anisotropic swelling behavior and endoscopic deliverability for use in biliary drainage.
We demonstrate the potential of a novel self-expandable biliary stent comprised of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogel with anisotropic swelling behavior and endoscopic deliverability in vivo, using a


Anti-Bacterial Activity of Chitosan-Alginate-Poly (Vinyl Alcohol) Hydrogel Containing Entrapped Peppermint Essential Oil
Abstract Polyelectrolyte complexes (PEC) of chitosan (CS) and sodium alginate (SA) containing various contents of peppermint essential oil (PEO), as a volatile bioactive agent, were prepared in order

Collagen and the effect of poly-L-lactic acid based materials on its synthesis.
Poly-l-lactic acid as a well-known biocompatible and biodegradable polymer has proved to stimulate collagen synthesis in various physical forms and special emphasis is laid on the effects of poly-l,lactic Acid as well as its mechanism of action on collagen synthesis.
Chitosan Nanococktails Containing Both Ceria and Superparamagnetic Iron Oxide Nanoparticles for Reactive Oxygen Species-Related Theranostics
An attempt is made to evaluate the phytochemical properties of polypeptide A, which has potential in finding its application in medicine and also in the sport of tennis.
Binding Mode Characterization of Osteopontin on Hydroxyapatite by Solution NMR Spectroscopy
The interaction of full‐length OPN on the surface of suspended HAP nanoparticles by solution NMR spectroscopy is studied and evidence for the influence of hyperphosphorylation on the binding character and an explanation for the differing roles in biomineralization is provided.
A freeze-thawing method applied to the fabrication of 3-d curdlan/polyvinyl alcohol hydrogels as scaffolds for cell culture.
Preparation of Cellulose Nanocrystal-Reinforced Physical Hydrogels for Actuator Application
In the present investigation, we prepared cellulose nanocrystal (CNC)-reinforced polyvinyl alcohol-cellulose (PVA-Cell) physical hydrogels using a simple blending method for actuator application. The
