Chicken feathers are an abundant by-product from poultry industry. Feathers are composed of around 90% keratin, a valuable protein bioresource that have great potential for non-food applications. Keratin is characterized by a high content of cysteine residues forming disulfide bonds. This feature...
A Model Study on Water Soluble Polymeric Nanofibers for Rapid Flocculation and Enhanced Dewatering of Fine Oil Sands Tailings Simulated Through KaolinDownload
Nanofibers are fibers with diameters lower than 100 nm, traditionally made from natural or synthetic polymers. Properties of nanofibers, such as low density, controllable surface functionality, and high surface area to volume ratio, allowed researchers to use them in a multitude of applications...
(RADA)4 Self-Assembling Peptide based Hydrogels: Design, Characterization and In-Vitro Biological EvaluationDownload
Ionic self-assembling peptides have emerged as promising nano-biomaterials, with direct applications in the fields of bioengineering and applicative medicine. (RADA)4 is a self-assembling 16 residue containing peptide, with alternating hydrophobic and hydrophilic residues. This characteristic...
