Chitosan-based nanomaterials for drug delivery and antibiotic-free bacterial control

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Research focused on chitosan (CS)-based nanostructured materials has burgeoned in the past decade or so, particularly in the biosciences and bionanotechnology fields. Chitosan characteristics (Mw and degree of acetylation), as well as the processing conditions [...]

2D Engineering of Protein-Based Nanoparticles for cell guidance

, , , , , , , , ,
Cells responses, like positioning, morphological changes, proliferation and apoptosis, are the result of complex chemical, topographical and biological stimuli. Here we show the macroscopic responses of cells when nanoscale profiles made with Inclusion Bodies (IBs) [...]

Biocompatible Nanotubes as potential Nanocarriers for hydrophobic model food and drug bioactives

, , , , , , , ,
Biocompatible nanotubes (NTs) have great potential applications especially in food and drug delivery. The NTs are very interesting because they have uniform wall thickness, two open ends, different interior and exterior layers, different size and [...]

Establishment of a Matrix for Biorecognition Reactions based on Responsive Polymeric Compounds

, , , , , ,
Thermo-responsive polymers were synthesized and covalently bound to the surface of gold electrodes. Subsequently cyclic voltammetric and impedimetric measurements with so prepared working electrodes were realised in aqueous potassium ferro-/ferricyanide solutions at different temperatures. Significant [...]
