Au Nanofiber/CNT 1D/1D Composites Formed Via Redox Reaction at the Ionic Liquid/Water Interface.

Langmuir 2021 Aug 28;37(31):9553-9559. Epub 2021 Jul 28.

Department of Energy and Hydrocarbon Chemistry, Graduate School of Engineering, Kyoto University, Kyoto 615-8510, Japan.

Au nanofiber/carbon nanotube (CNT) 1D/1D composites and Janus-type Au/CNT composites have been prepared by utilizing the liquid/liquid interface between water (W) and a hydrophobic ionic liquid (IL) as a redox reaction site. AuCl in W is reduced at the IL/W interface where CNTs are adsorbed, by a reducing agent in the IL, leading to the formation of the Au/CNT composites. The Au/CNT composites are Janus-type in which Au microurchins and Au nanofibers are deposited on the W side and the IL side of the CNTs on the IL/W interface, respectively. Read More

Stent coating by electrospinning with chitosan/poly-cyclodextrin based nanofibers loaded with simvastatin for restenosis prevention.

Eur J Pharm Biopharm 2020 May 13;150:156-167. Epub 2020 Mar 13.

Univ. Lille, CNRS UMR8207, UMET - Unité Matériaux et Transformations, F-59655 Villeneuve D'Ascq, France. Electronic address:

The main cause of failure of angioplasty stenting is restenosis due to neointimal hyperplasia, a too high proliferation of smooth muscle cells (SMC). The local and sustained delivery of selective pleiotropic drugs to limit SMC proliferation seems to be the hopeful solution to minimize this post surgery complication. The aim of this study is to develop a stent covered by nanofibers (NFs) produced by electrospinning, loaded with simvastatin (SV), a drug commonly used for restenosis prevention. Read More

Hypothesis: Growing use of comfortable functional textiles has resulted in increased demand of excellent directional moisture (sweat) transport feature in textiles. However, designing such anisotropic functional textiles that allow fast penetration of sweat through one direction but prevent its movement in the reverse direction is still a challenging task. In this regard, fabrication of a novel Janus membrane with multi-scaled interconnected inter- and intra-fiber pores for enhanced directional moisture transport designed by a rational combination of superhydrophilic hydrolyzed porous polyacrylonitrile (HPPAN) nanofibers and hydrophobic polyurethane (PU) fibers via electrospinning may be a very useful approach.

A Self-Pumping Dressing for Draining Excessive Biofluid around Wounds.

Adv Mater 2019 Feb 9;31(5):e1804187. Epub 2018 Dec 9.

CAS Key Laboratory of Bio-inspired Materials and Interfacial Science, CAS Center for Excellence in Nanoscience, Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry, University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, 100190, P. R. China.

Excessive biofluid around wounds often causes infection and hinders wound healing. However, the intrinsic hydrophilicity of the conventional dressing inevitably retains excessive biofluid at the interface between the dressing and the wound. Herein, a self-pumping dressing is reported, by electrospinning a hydrophobic nanofiber array onto a hydrophilic microfiber network, which can unidirectionally drain excessive biofluid away from wounds and finally accelerate the wound healing process.

Chempluschem 2018 Mar;83(3):108-116

Changchun University of Science and Technology, Key Laboratory of Applied Chemistry, and Nanotechnology at Universities of Jilin, 7989 Weixing Road, Changchun, Jilin Province, 130022, P. R. China.

Flexible peculiarly structured [(Fe O /PVP)@(Tb(BA) phen/PVP)]//[PANI/PVP] (PVP=polyvinylpyrrolidone, BA=benzoic acid, phen=1,10-phenanthroline, and PANI=polyaniline) Janus nanofibers synchronously endowed with tuned and enhanced luminescent-magnetic-electrical trifunctionality have been prepared by electrospinning technology by using a homemade coaxis//monoaxis spinneret. It is satisfactorily found that the luminescent intensity of the peculiarly structured Janus nanofibers is higher than those of the counterpart conventional [nanofiber]//[nanofiber] Janus nanofibers and composite nanofibers owing to its peculiar nanostructure. Compared with the counterpart conventional Janus nanofibers of two independent partitions, the coaxial nanocable is used as one side of the peculiarly structured Janus nanofiber instead of nanofiber, and three independent partitions are successfully realized in the peculiarly structured Janus nanofiber, thus the interferences among various functions are further reduced, leading to the fact that excellent multifunctionalities can be obtained.
