Multifunctional Micropatterned Nanofiber Capable of Cell Patterning, Metabolite Detection, and Growth Factor Delivery

, , , , , , ,
This study describes the development of multifunctional nanofiber scaffolds consisting of multiple layers of nanofiber scaffolds and nanofiber-incorporated PEG hydrogels. We fabricated double-layered nanofiber scaffolds that were micropatterned with PEG hydrogels by combining two-step sequential [...]

Boron Nitride Nanotubes functionalized with glucosamine as a potential novel carrier system for radioisotope and drug delivery

, , , , , , ,
In the present work, Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) were synthesized and submitted to a functionalization process (coating) with glucosamine. The nanostructures were physicochemical and morphologically characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman [...]
