pH responsive smart biomaterials of gelatin and poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate-co-acrylic acid) were synthesized by redox polymerization and characterized by FTIR, Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy (ESEM). The prepared environmental responsive biomaterials containing polyelectrolyte segments were assessed for their water sorption potential under varying experimental conditions. The diffusion mechanism of transport of water molecules arising due to solvent-polymer interaction was also analysed to predict the behaviour of continuously relaxing macromolecular chains. The in vitro blood compatibility of the prepared polymeric hydrophilic materials was evaluated by methods such as blood clot formation, platelet adhesion, percent haemolysis and protein-adsorption study on the surface of the prepared biomaterials.

    The generation of HF with traces of TF and then conversion to HT were investigated using a bed packed with NiF2 and Zn or Fe particles. When the temperature of fine particles of Zn or Fe was elevated up to 400 °C or 550 °C, respectively, TF was completely reduced to HT. Since ZnF2 and FeF2...

    The adsorption of some biogenic amines (histamine, tryptamine, and tyramine) on the surface of highly dispersed silica from aqueous solutions is studied as a function of pH and ionic strength. It is established that biogenic amines in a protonated form interact with dissociated silanol groups of...

    We studied the adsorption of small coinage metal aggregates Mn (M = Cu, Ag, Au; n=2,3) on the ideal MgO(001) as well as on oxygen vacancies, Fs and Fs+ using a first-principle computational approach. We applied a generalized-gradient density functional in combination with cluster embedding in an...

    Atomistic simulation techniques have been used to investigate the dissociative adsorption of water on the (110), (111), and (100) low index surfaces of CeO2, as well as a so-called “trench” surface configuration. Several different coverages of water have been considered to better...

    Thermo-sensitive hydrogels of chitosan (CS) networks sandwiched by poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm) and poly(acrylamide) (PAAm) were prepared. The formation of chitosan networks inside the gel was done by immersing the PAAm-co-PNIPAAm/CS mixture in a 1.5% glutaraldehyde aqueous solution....
