Fabrication of gallic acid loaded Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose nanofibers by electrospinning technique as active packaging material

The objective of this study was to encapsulate gallic acid in Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC)/poly-ethylene oxide (PEO) blend nanofiber by using electrospinning and examine the usage of nanofibers as active packaging materials. Gallic acid loaded nanofibers showed homogenous morphology. Gallic acid was loaded into nanofibers efficiently and nanofibers showed strong antioxidant activity. As the gallic acid amount increased, the TGA curves had shifted one stage to two stage degradation and degradation temperature (T-d) of gallic acid decreased from 275 degrees C to 250 degrees C due to the crystalline structure change. Interaction between gallic acid and HPMC/PEO nanofiber demonstrated that gallic acid successfully embedded into the nanofibers. Gallic acid loaded nanofibers decreased the oxidation of walnut during storage. Overall, electrospinning technique was proved to be an efficient method to encapsulate bioactive compounds and gallic acid loaded nanofibers showed promissory results that can be suggested as great potential to active packaging material.


Fabrication of a Novel Polymeric Scaffold for Amperometric Laccase Biosensor
Soylemez, Saniye; Bekmezci, Aybüke; Göker, Seza; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2019-11-14)
Present work displays the preparation of an electrochemical biosensor using a conjugated polymer and laccase enzyme for catechol quantification in samples. The biosensing system is based on an enzyme immobilization on polymer modified graphite transducer surface. For that purpose, a random conjugated polymer, thienothiophene-benzoxadiazole-alt-benzodithiophene (BOTT), was coated onto a graphite electrode surface via drop casting method followed by immobilization of a biomolecule (laccase) for sensing experi...

In this study, two new benzotriazole (BTz) and dithienothiophene (DTT) containing conjugated polymers were synthesized. After successful characterizations of the monomers by proton-nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) and carbon-NMR (13C NMR) techniques, poly(4-(dithieno[3, 2-b:2,3-d]thiophen-2-yl)-2-(2-octyldodecyl)-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3] triazole) P1 and poly(4-(5-(dithieno[3,2-b:2,3-d]thiophen-2-yl)thiophen-2-yl)-2-(2-octyldodecyl)-7-(thiophen-2-yl)-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3]triazole) P2 were synthesized via a typica...
Investigation of pi-pi Interactions between TNT and (R)-Hexahelicene
Celik Bayar, Caglar; Türker, Burhan Lemi (Informa UK Limited, 2020-08-01)
The detection of an energetic molecule TNT is an important issue especially in military applications and as a result many of the studies focused on this subject in the literature. In this study, except from the literature, the possible interactions between TNT and polycyclic aromatic chiral compound (R)-Hexahelicene were examined theoretically in terms of non-covalent pi-pi interactions, theoretically. It was observed that (R)-Hexahelicene had such interactions with TNT via the 2nd and 3rd six-membered ring...
Synthesis and characterization of fully aromatic thermotropic liquid-crystalline copolyesters containing m-hydroxybenzoic acid units
Yerlikaya, Z; Aksoy, S; Bayramlı, Erdal (Wiley, 2001-10-01)
A series of fully aromatic copolyesters based on p-acetoxybenzoic acid (p-ABA), hydroquinone diacetate (HQDA), terephthalic acid (TPA), and m-acetoxybenzoic acid (m-ABA) were prepared by a modified melt-polycondensation reaction. The copolyesters were characterized by DSC, thermogravimetric analysis, H-1 NMR, polarized optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and intrinsic viscosity measurements. The copolyesters exhibited nematic liquid-crystalline phases in a broad temperature range of about 150 degreesC, w...
Characterization and Electrical Conductivity of Poly(ethylene glycol)/Polyacrylonitrile/Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Composites
Aqeel, Salem M.; Kucukyavuz, Zuhal (Wiley, 2011-01-05)
Polymer blends based on poly(ethylene glycol), polyacrylonitrile, and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) were prepared by the solvent cast technique from the dispersion of the MWNTs in the concentration range 0-3.45 wt %. The interaction of the MWNTs with the polymer blend was confirmed by a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy study. The thermal properties of the polymer blend with the MWNTs were carried out by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). It was evident from DSC that the p...
