Protein engineering and formulation optimisation strategies can be taken to minimise protein aggregation in the biopharmaceutical industry. Short-term stability measures such as the mid-point transition temperature (Tm) for global unfolding provide convenient surrogates for longer-term (eg 2-year) degradation kinetics, with which to optimise formulations on practical time-scales. While successful in some cases, their limitations have not been fully evaluated or understood. Tm values are known to correlate with chemical degradation kinetics for wild-type granulocyte colony stimulating factor (GCSF) at pH 4-5...

The purpose of this work was to prepare and characterize an innovative formulation for vaginal delivery of econazole nitrate, commonly used for the treatment of Candida infections. A novel biosurfactant isolated from a vaginal Lactobacillus strain was used to prepare phosphatidylcholine based mixed vesicles. Biosurfactant was produced by Lactobacillus gasseri BC9, isolated from the vagina of a healthy premenopausal woman, and was chemically characterized by FT-IR and ESI-MS. Mixed vesicles, obtained through film rehydration and extrusion method, were characterized in terms of size, zeta potential, encapsulation efficiency, mucoadhesion properties and econazole release...

The present paper reports the sonocatalytic activity of cerium-substituted-magnetite for removal of oxytetracycline (OTC). The catalyst was prepared through a chemical route (co-precipitation, Fe3-xCexO4) and a mechanical procedure (CeO2/Fe3O4). Subsequently, the physico-chemical characteristics of both samples were determined using XRD, BET, SEM, EDX, TEM, Dot-mapping, FT-IR, DRS, and VSM analysis and compared to pristine magnetite and ceria. Afterwards, the effects of various operational conditions were assessed on sonocatalytic performance of Fe2...

The sonocatalytic performance of CeO2 nanoparticles synthesized by a hydrothermal method (CeO2-H) and CeO2@biochar (CeO2-H@BC) nanocomposite, were evaluated for the degradation of Reactive Red 84 (RR84) under ultrasonic irradiation. For comparison purposes the corresponding performance of bare biochar (BC) and commercial CeO2 (CeO2-C) samples were also assessed. A complementary characterization study, involving scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorption at -196°C (Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) was undertaken to gain insight into the structure-performance relationships...

ZnO/ZrO2 nanocomposites with different ZnO: ZrO2 molar ratios (2:1, 1:1, and 1:2)were prepared by sol gel approach under ultrasonic irradiation. For preparation of the nano-composites, the ZnO gel was directly incorporated into the ZrO2 gel at different molar ratios. The reaction mixture was stirred continuously for two days and then it was ultrasonoicated for 30min. The filtrated composite gel was washed, and then calcinated at 300°C in furnace for 3h. X-ray powder diffraction patterns exhibited well-formed crystal structures and pure crystalline phases in the synthesized nanoparticles (NPs)...

In the present research, we have developed a novel label free aptasensor based on screen printed carbon electrode (SPCE) modified with three-dimensional magnetic reduced graphene oxide(3D-MRGO)/polyaniline(PA)/gold nanoparticle(AuNP) nanocomposite for impedimetric determination of cocaine. To achieve this goal, a specific thiolated cocaine aptamer was immobilized onto the surface of synthesized nanocomposite. The signaling mechanism of the proposed aptasensor was based on increase in the [Fe(CN)6](3-/4-) charge transfer resistance (RCT) as an electrochemical probe in the presence of target analyte...

Hypercrosslinked polymers (HCPs) are currently receiving great attention due to their unique characteristics and potential uses in diverse areas. However, the field of HCPs for open-tubular capillary electrochromatography (OT-CEC) separations has not been explored. Here, a knitted aromatic polymer (KAP) was in-situ grown on the inner wall of the capillary column for OT-CEC for the first time. The silylating reagent containing phenyl was served as monomer, immobilized on the inner wall of the capillary column, and then KAPs-modified capillary column was prepared through in-situ hypercrosslinking reaction...

Using sulfonated and fluorinated poly (arylene ether ketone) comprising functional strong coordination group benzimidazole (SPAEK-F-BI) as a template film, a novel fabrication method of cobalt nanoflowers (CoNFs) and non-enzymatic glucose electrochemical sensor was developed in this work. After the precursors Co(2+) ions were cooperatively bound by sulfonate and imidazole functionalities contained in SPAEK-F-BI film through ion exchange and strong coordination action, cobalt colloid nuclei were formed and grew to flower-like nanostructures by subsequent in-situ electrochemical reduction on SPAEK-F-BI film modified GCE...
