Improvement of Endothelial Function by Gunnera Tinctoria Extract With Antioxidant Properties
(Springer Nature, 2020)
[Abstract] Background: Gunnera tinctoria has been collected by Mapuche-Pewenche people for food and medicinal purposes. The high polyphenol content of methanolic extract from G. tinctoria leaves with chemical constituents ...
Preparation and Characterization of Bionanocomposite Films Based on Wheat Starch and Reinforced With Cellulose Nanocrystals
(Springer Nature, 2021)
[Abstract] In recent times, the attention of scientific community has been focusing on the replacement of petroleum-based polymers by others more environmentally friendly. In this sense, bionanocomposites based on ...
Influence of the Hydrophilicity of Montmorillonite on Structure and Properties of Thermoplastic Wheat Starch/Montmorillonite Bionanocomposites
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2021-11)
[Abstract] The increasing environmental pollution with petroleum-based plastics has advanced research on biodegradable polymers. Thermoplastic starch (TPS) is one promising candidate due to wide availability from various ...
Preparation of Poly(vinyl Alcohol) Microparticles for Freeze Protection of Sensitive Fruit Crops
[Abstract] Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) displays ice recrystallization inhibition (IRI) properties as many antifreeze proteins found in cold tolerant organisms. The molecular architecture and composition (molecular weight and ...
Isosorbide Plasticized Corn Starch Filled With Poly(3-Hydroxybutyrate-co-3-Hydroxyvalerate) Microparticles: Properties and Behavior Under Environmental Factors
[Abstract] In this work, new green and fully biodegradable composites, based on corn starch, plasticized with two different amounts of isosorbide and filled by poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) (PHBV) microparticles, ...
Effect of different plasticizers on thermal, crystalline, and permeability properties of Poly(3–hydroxybutyrate–co-3–hydroxyhexanoate)films
Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyhexanoate) (PHBH) films were prepared using a cast film technique. Dioxane was chosen over other polymer solvents as it resulted in homogenous films with better morphology. Several ...
