Self-assemblies of magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) and peroxidase enzymes: mesoporous structures and nanoscale magnetic field effects (nano-MFEs) for enhanced activity BioNanoCatalysts (BNCs).

, , , , , , ,
BNCs are self-assembled complexes of magnetic nanoparticles and free-radical producing enzymes, including peroxidases and other oxido-reductases that were shown to have higher activities than their free-enzyme counterparts (up to 30 folds). The BNCs biochemical properties [...]

Novel Green Polymer Composites: Major Enhancements in the Crystallization Kinetics of Poly(lactic acid) and Mechanical Properties of Polypropylene Created via Solid-State Shear Pulverization

, , , ,
Hybrids of polylactide (PLA) or polypropylene (PP) with microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) were created using a continuous, industrially scalable, and environmentally benign process called solid-state shear pulverization (SSSP). The PLA composite was subsequently melt-processed (MP) with [...]
