β-glucans are a key active ingredient in mushrooms and are also found in oats, barley, yeast, bacteria and algae. In microbial sources, they are a structural component and in grain sources, they are found in the endospermic ...
Influence of extrusion screw speed on the properties of halloysite nanotube impregnated polylactic acid nanocomposites
(De Gruyter, 2021)
Poly (lactic acid)/halloysite nanotube (PLA/HNT) nanocomposites have been studiedextensively over the past fewyears owing to the interesting properties of the polymer, PLA, and the nanoclay, HNT, individually and as ...
On the possibility of replacement of calcium carbonate by a high-performance, economically viable filler in polyethylene composites
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is frequently added to polyethylene (PE) as a filler to reduce costs. An alternative to CaCO3, calcium fluoride (CaF2) was proposed in this research. PE/CaCO3 and PE/CaF2 composites in a wide ...
Development of a low-temperature extrusion process for production of GRAS bioactive-polymer loaded compounds for targeting antimicrobial-resistant (AMR) bacteria
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is recognised globally as one of the greatest threats to human and animal health; thus, discovery of alternative antibacterial agents to address AMR is a priority challenge. This study ...
