Surface modified halloysite nanotubes reinforced polylactic acid for use in biodegradable coronary stents.
Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) was reinforced halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) in this study. To improve dispersion and interfacial adhesion of HNTs within the PLA matrix, HNTs were surface modified with 3‐aminopropyltriethoxysilane ...
Review of multifarious applications of Poly (lactic acid)
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)
Poly (lactic acid) is considered to be a promising alternative to petroleum-based polymers due to its renewability, biodegradability, biocompatibility, and good mechanical properties. Because of the high cost, the applications ...
Halloysite nanotube reinforced polylactic acid composite.
Polylactic acid (PLA) has long history in medical applications, and reinforced PLA has the potential to be used in the medical applications that require high mechanical strength such as coronary stents and bone fixation ...
Faster release of lumen-loaded drugs than matrix-loaded equivalent in polylactic acid/halloysite nanotubes.
Nanocomposite-based drug delivery systems with intrinsic controlled release properties are of great interest in biomedical applications. We report a novel polylactic acid (PLA)/halloysite nanotube (HNT) nanocomposite-based ...
