A tough and novel dual-response PAA/P(NiPAAM-co-PEGDMA) IPN hydrogels with ceramics by photopolymerization for consolidation of bone fragments following fracture.
(IOP Science, 2019-07)
In this work, a novel dual-response hydrogel for enhanced bone repair following multiple fractures was investigated. The conventional treatment of multiple bone fracture consists on removing smaller bone fragments from the ...
Nanosuspension of pinhão seed coat development for a new high-functional cereal bar.
The seeds from Araucaria angustifolia—commonly named as pinhão—are important culturally, and viable regional food from Brazil. Although now considered an endangered species, methods to increase the awareness of this tree ...
Effect of cullulose size-concentration on the structure of polyvinyl alcohol hydrogels.
Microfibrillated cellulose as a reinforcement agent has been investigated extensively due to their unique characteristics, which can reorder the structure of polymers and hydrogels leading to improved mechanical properties ...
The evaluation of the potential ecotoxicity of pyroligenous acid obtained from fast pyrolsis.
Pyroligneous acid (PA) is a by-product of bio-oil, which is obtained by pyrolysis of the wood. This product has been tested for use in several areas, such as agriculture, as a promising green herbicide; however, there are ...
Prediction of yerba mate caffeine content using near infrared spectroscopy.
(Taylor & Francis, 2019-06-10)
There is a commercial and beneficial interest of producing yerba mate leaves into different grades of caffeine. This work uses a handheld and bench near infrared spectroscopy to compare and predict, using partial least ...
Characterisation and in vivo evaluation of Araucaria angustifolia pinhão seed coat nanosuspension as a functional food source
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020-10-08)
Araucaria angustifolia seeds are culturally important from South America; however, the seed coat is generally discarded and have yet to find a beneficial commercial impact. We propose a new formulation to the usage of ...
