Functionalized Self-Assembling Peptides for Immediate Hemostasis and Accelerative Liver Tissue Regeneration

, , , , , , ,
Traumatic injury or surgery may trigger extensive bleeding. However, conventional hemostatic methods have limited efficacy and may cause surrounding tissue damage. In this study, we use self-assembling peptides (SAPs) and specifically extend fragments of functional [...]

Preparation and Characterization of Antibacterial TiO2/Poly[acrylamide-co-(acrylic acid)] Composite Hydrogel

, , , ,
A photocatalytically antibacterial TiO2/poly[acrylamide-co-(acrylic acid)] composite hydrogel from acrylamide (AAm) and acrylic acid (AAc) comonomers was prepared by free-radical aqueous polymerization using N,N’-methylenebisacrylamide (N-MBA) as a crosslinker, ammonium persulfate (APS) as an initiator, and Degussa [...]
