High porosity cationic hydrogels synthesized via crosslinking co-polymerization of diallyldimethylammonium chloride (DADMAC) with N,N'-tetraallylpiperaziniumdichloride (TAP) showed high affinity towards arsenate anions over a wide pH range within notably short periods. Batch tests indicated that poly(DADMAC) hydrogels removed 99% of the arsenate anions from aqueous solutions at pH 6-10 and exhibited a maximum arsenic removal capacity of 0.12 g arsenic per gram of hydrogel. DADMAC hydrogels performed well at various pH levels after a short contact time (i.e., 10 min). Evidence of the ion exchange mechanism was based on experiments with solutions containing competing chloride and sulfate ions. An "intra-particle diffusion model" was proposed for the kinetics of arsenic removal. This gel was determined to be a good candidate for use in practice due to its easy regeneration either by treating with a 8.24 g/L of NaCl solution or by reducing the pH of the medium to below 1.0.


Micelles As Delivery System for Cancer Treatment
Keskin, Dilek; Tezcaner, Ayşen (2017-01-01)
Micelles are nanoparticles formed by the self-assembly of amphiphilic block copolymers in certain solvents above concentrations called critical micelle concentration (CMC). Micelles are used in different fields like food, cosmetics, medicine, etc. These nanosized delivery systems are under spotlight in the recent years with new achievements in terms of their in vivo stability, ability to protect entrapped drug, release kinetics, ease of cellular penetration and thereby increased therapeutic efficacy.

Speciation of Arsenic in Fish by High-Performance Liquid Chromatography-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry
Ozcan, Sefika; BAKIRDERE, Sezgin; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2016-01-01)
Arsenic speciation in fish was performed using isocratic elution with cation exchange column high-performance liquid chromatography and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry detection. The separation of arsenobetaine and dimethylarsinic acid was performed in 12 min. DOLT-4 dogfish liver and NIST RM-50 albacore tuna certified reference materials were used to evaluate the accuracy for the determination of total arsenic in fish. In addition, reference materials were analyzed for arsenobetaine and dimeth...
Controlled release of vancomycin from biodegradable microcapsules
Ozalp, Y; Ozdemir, N; Kocagoz, S; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2001-01-01)
Poly D,L-lactic acid (PLA) and its copolymers with glycolide PLGA 90:10 and 70:30 were polymerized under various conditions to yield polymers in the molecular weight range 12 000-40 000 daltons, as determined by gel permeation chromatography. Vancomycin hydrochloride was the hydrophilic drug of choice for the treatment of methicillin resistant Staphyloccoccal infections. It was microencapsulated in the synthesized polymers using water-oil-water (w/o/w) double emulsion and solvent evaporation. The influence ...
Covalent immobilization of glucose isomerase on poly(2-hydoxyethyl methacrylate) particles
Yıldız, Ümit Hakan; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Department of Chemistry (2004)
In this study, poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), P(HEMA), particles were prepared by suspension polymerization of the monomer 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate with addition of ethylene glycol dimethyacrylate, EGDMA, as cross linker. Glucose isomerase, GI, enzyme was covalently immobilized on the prepared P(HEMA) particles after activation of the particles with cyanuric chloride. The activities of the free and immobilized enzymes were measured with Ethanol-Carbazole method. The immobilization of GI on P(HEMA) p...
Crosslinked polymer gels for boron extraction derived from N-glucidol-N-methyl-2-hydroxypropyl methacrylate
Bicak, N; Ozbelge, HO; Yılmaz, Levent; Senkal, BF (Wiley, 2000-03-24)
Glycidyl methacrylate was reacted in 2-methyl pyrrolidone solution with N-methyl-D-glucamine (NMG) to produce N-D-glucidol, N-methyl-2-hydroxy propyl methacrylate (GMHP). The reaction proceeded exclusively via ring opening of the oxirane. The resulting vinyl monomer was a waxy product and soluble in water, ethanol, methanol, DMF, and NMP. Copolymerization of GMHP with N,N'-tetraallyl piperazinium dichloride by the inverse suspension method (water in oil), using a toluene/chloroform (3:1) mixture as continuo...
