Controlled Release of Tetracycline Hydrochloride Loaded Highly Absorbent Alginate Submicron Fibers from Centrifugally Spinning

Highly absorbent alginate/polyethylene oxide submicron fibers containing the hydrophilic model drug tetracycline hydrochloride were prepared through centrifugal spinning. Pre-treatment with ethanol before crosslinking with calcium chloride …


Thermal Comfort Performances of Double-face Knitted Insulation Fabrics

Thermal comfort parameters of knitted fabrics such as thermal resistance and liquid transfer can be enhanced by combining hydrophilic and hydrophobic functional yarns as double-face fabrics. This study aims to investigate thermal conductivity …


Cold Atmosphere Plasma Modification on Beta-Carotene-Loaded Nanofibers to Enhance Osteogenic Differentiation

Since bone disorders have globally increased, tissue engineering could provide a solution by generating fully functional bone tissues. The most powerful aspect of bone tissue engineering is biomaterials. The focus of this study was the development …


Preparation and Properties of Electrospun Polyimide Ultrafine Fibrous Mats with Excellent Heat-fusibility via Hot-press procedure from Organo-soluble Polyimides Containing Phenolphthalein Units

Electrospun polyimide (PI) ultrafine non-woven fibrous mats (UFMs) with good heat-fusibility via hot press procedure were successfully fabricated. For this purpose, two organo-soluble PI resins were prepared via a two-step chemical imidization …


Mechanical, Morphological and Thermal Properties of Woven Polyester Fiber Reinforced Polylactic Acid (PLA) Composites

Polylactic acid (PLA) is derived from renewable sources and is among the most commercially available bioplastics. However, the application of PLA is limited due to its properties, such as poor thermal stability and ductility. The incorporation of …
