Biodegradable bandages made from these fibers will accelerate the growth of tissue cells twice as quickly
Ultrafine fibers have exceptional strength
The new Kevlar-based hydrogel recreates the magic of cartilage by combining a network of tough nanofibers from Kevlar with polyvinyl alcohol
One potential application of the system includes producing capillary systems for artificial organs
Specially designed nanofiber solution easily converts non-woven mesh into see-through air filters that clean air, improve air flow, and offer UV protection
Rice University lab employs clotting powers of viper-derived drug, even in presence of anti-coagulants
Approach turns CO2 into valuable products
Researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas have created new structures that exploit the electromechanical properties of specific nanofibers to stretch to up to seven times their length, while remaining tougher than Kevlar.
New approach could enable low-cost silicon devices in fibers that could be made into fabrics
Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have developed a novel method for creating self-assembled protein/polymer nanostructures that are reminiscent of fibers found in living cells. The work offers a promising new way to fabricate materials for drug delivery and tissue engineering applications. The findings were published in the July 28 issue of Angewandte Chemie International Edition.
