Improving the physical properties of biobased polymers using bionanofillers is essential to preserve its biodegradability. This work presents a dopamine-induced functionalization of cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) with polyethylene glycol (PEG), to enhance the crystallization, mechanical and barrier properties of poly(L -lactic acid) (PLLA) bionanocomposites. The effect of molecular weight of grafted PEG on the properties of PLLA is also studied. PEGylation of CNCs significantly enhance the crystallization of PLLA, especially for CNCs functionalized with PEG of lower molecular weight, which lead to balanced strength and ductility, and 66...

Undesirable bio-adhesion of microalgae on adsorbent can influence its adsorption capacity. In this report, we fabricated a novel mussel-inspired antifouling magnetic activated carbons which derived orange peel by integrated biosorption-pyrolysis process (MACs@PDA-Ag), via co-functionalization of poly-dopamine (PDA) and Ag nanoparticles (AgNPs), for the recovery of uranium (VI) from simulated seawater with antimicrobial adhesion performance; this process did not require an additional reducing agent. The effect of pH, concentration, contact time, fouling test against nitzschia closterium f...

This study investigates the structure and water adsorbing capacity of bagasse and of sodium hydroxide pretreated bagasse. The structures of bagasse and bagasse-NaOH were compared by SEM and XRD. Candida antarctica lipase B was then immobilized on bagasse, bagasse-NaOH and DPA@bagasse-NaOH. The expressed activity and immobilization yield of lipase immobilized on bagasse-NaOH (1.0%) was 36% and 45% higher than that on bagasse. When dopamine (DPA) was used as cationic polymer monomer via self-polymerization for mediating immobilization, the protein loading amounts and activity of lipase immobilized on DPA@bagasse-NaOH were higher than that of bagasse-NaOH...

Breast cancer is the most common threat in women worldwide. Increasing death rate of diagnosed cases is the main leading cause of designing specific immunoassay for tumor marker in breast cancer. Cancer antigen 15-3 (CA 15-3) is a tumor protein for many types of cancer, most notably breast cancer. Herein, we report a sandwich-type electrochemical immunosensor based on signal amplification strategy of multiple nanocomposites to detection of CA 15-3 biomarker. The proposed immunosensor fabricated by reduced graphene oxide (rGO), poly-dopamine (PDA) and amino functionalized mesoporous silica (MCM-41-NH2 ) doped by gold nanoparticles composite on the glassy carbon electrode with a large surface area which was prepared a new platform to immobilization of primary antibodies and provide excellent conductivity...

Herein, a reusable and time-saving strategy for the electrochemical polymerization of dopamine (EPD) in the presence of chitosan is reported. In this work, biocompatible polymer chitosan (CS) was electrodeposited on the surface of PDA modified glassy carbon electrode using layer-by-layer strategy. Owing to the abundant catechol and amine groups in the PDA layer, uniform gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) are deposited onto the POLY(DA-CS) and can effectively prevent the recombination of electron-hole pairs generated from photo-electrocatalysis and transfer the captured electrons to participate in the electrocatalytic reaction process...

In this study, a new miniaturized and integrated analytical system was developed based on the in-line coupling of boronate affinity solid phase extraction with capillary isoelectric focusing separation and UV detection. This original coupling takes advantage of the selective enrichment of cis-diol-containing compounds using a boronate affinity sorbent and the exceptional focusing features of isoelectric focusing process. Such coupling has been used for preconcentration/purification and separation of urinary catecholamines (dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline) as proof of concept...

In this study, a poly l-lactic acid (PLLA) fibrous mat was prepared by electrospinning, followed by surface modification with polydopamine (PDA), based on its strong adhesion performance and self-polymerization of dopamine. The PDA coating on the fibrous mat surface provided a reaction platform for heparin via a Michael-type addition reaction and a reductive surface for Ag+ in situ formation of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in AgNO3 solution. The structure and chemical composition of the fibrous mats were determined by scanning electronic microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared (ATR-FTIR) spectroscopy...

Polydopamine (PDA) is of interest as a mimetic material of melanin to produce structural color materials. Herein, to investigate the influence of the material composition of the artificial melanin particles on structural color, we demonstrated the preparation of core-shell particles by polymerization of norepinephrine or 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine, which are melanin precursors similar to dopamine, in the presence of polystyrene particles. It was revealed that the arrays of the prepared particles produce high-visibility structural color because of absorption of scattering light...

A novel ternary composite consisting of Mg/Al layered double hydroxides (LDH), polydopamine (PDA) and poly(methyl vinyl ether-alt-maleic anhydride) (PMVE-MA) was fabricated by a facile combination of mussel-inspired chemistry and a ring-opening reaction. Dopamine can serve as a "minimalist mimic" of mussel adhesive protein to form a layer of polydopamine (PDA) on the LDH surface under rather mild conditions (including air atmosphere, aqueous solution, and catalyst free). Subsequently, the PMVE-MA brushes were immobilized onto the PDA modified LDH via a ring-opening reaction...

Multi shape memory polymers (multi-SMPs) exhibit many potential applications such as aerospace, soft robotics, and biomedical devices because of their unique abilities. Although many works are done to broaden the preparations of multi-SMPs, the desire to a simple and versatile strategy as well as more complex shapes still exists. Moreover, a light-induced SMP shows more advantages than a thermal-induced one in many practical working circumstances. Herein, inspired by strong adhesion and efficient photothermal conversion of polydopamine (PDA) coating, we report a more simple and facile approach to prepare light-induced multi-SMPs by introducing a gradient PDA coating on a dual-SMP through time-controlled dipping...

A glassy carbon electrode (GCE) was modified with poly(L-arginine) (P-Arg), reduced graphene oxide (rGO) and gold nanoparticle (AuNP) to obtain an electrode for simultaneous determination of dopamine (DA), serotonin (5-HT) and L-tryptophan (L-Trp) in the presence of ascorbic acid (AA). The modified GCE was prepared via subsequent 'layer-by-layer' deposition using an electrochemical technique. The surface morphology of the modified electrode was studied by scanning electron microscopy, and electrochemical characterizations were carried out via cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy...

We demonstrate antifouling ultrafiltration membranes with retained selectivity and pure water flux through the controlled deposition of zwitterionic polymers and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG). Molecules for polymerization were immobilized on the membrane's surface yet prevented from attaching to the membrane's pores due to a backflow of nitrogen (N2 ) gas achieved using an in-house constructed apparatus that we named the polymer prevention apparatus, or "PolyPrev". First, the operating parameters of the PolyPrev were optimized by investigating the polymerization of dopamine, which was selected due to its versatility in enabling further chemical reactions, published metrics for comparison, and its oxidative self-polymerization...

This work reports a study of electropolymerization kinetics, film thickness, stability, and antifouling properties of polydopamine (PDA) and its three analogues: poly(3-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-l-alanine) (PL-DOPA), poly(5-hydroxytryptophan) (PL-5-HTP), and poly(Adrenalin) (PAdrenalin). It was observed that the number of the hydroxyl groups on the benzene ring and the type (primary vs secondary) of amine group significantly affect the electropolymerization kinetics and thus the thickness of the obtained polymer films...

A novel poly(glycine) (p-GLY)/graphene oxide (GO) composite based sensor (p-GLY/GO) was successfully prepared on glassy carbon electrode by simple electropolymerization. Electrochemical responses of analytes on p-GLY/GO modified electrode were studied by cyclic voltammetry and differential pulse voltammetry. The results demonstrated that p-GLY/GO modified electrode showed a favorable application for the simultaneous determination of dopamine (DA), uric acid (UA), guanine (GU) and adenine (AD). Owing to the synergistic effect of p-GLY and GO, the oxidation peaks of four analytes separated well from each other, and the potential separations of oxidation peaks of DA-UA, UA-GU and GU-AD were large up to 170, 350 and 300 mV, respectively...

Poor compatibility of polymer/ceramic composites used as high-pulse capacitors with high permittivity suffers from the reduced breakdown strength ( Eb ) and lowered energy density ( Ue ). Herein, mussel-inspired poly(dopamine) (PDA)-modified BaSrTiO3 (mBST) nanoparticle and poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) matrix are bonded together to fabricate nanocomposites with a cross-linked network and enhanced compatibility. The significantly improved Eb of 466 MV/m and the highest Ue of 11.0 J/cm3 for PVDF-based polymer/BST composites have been obtained...

The authors report a new patterned electroless metallization process for creating micro- and nanoscale metallic structures on polymeric substrates, which are essential for emerging flexible and stretchable optical and electronic applications. This novel process features a selective adsorption of catalytic Pd nanoparticles (PdNPs) on a lithographically masked poly(dopamine) (PDA) interlayer in situ polymerized on the substrates. The moisture-resistant PDA layer has excellent stability under a harsh electroless plating bath, which enables electroless metallization on versatile substrate materials regardless of their hydrophobicity, and significantly strengthens the attachment of electroless plated metallic structures on the polymeric substrates...

Advanced multicompartment drug delivery platforms ensure the co-localization of several drugs within the same carrier, thus making it possible to achieve a more effective and safe therapeutic outcome. Herein, we report a novel multicompartment architecture by combining two intrinsically different systems, i.e., polymeric microgels and liposomes, with the aim to achieve different release kinetics for model compounds. We assemble poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylic acid) microgels decorated with liposomes which are subsequently coated with a protective poly(dopamine) shell and a poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) layer...

Albumin is a promising surface modifier of nanoparticulate drug delivery systems. Serving as a dysopsonin, albumin can protect circulating nanoparticles (NPs) from the recognition and clearance by the mononuclear phagocytic system (MPS). Albumin may also help transport the NPs to solid tumors based on the increased consumption by cancer cells and interactions with the tumor microenvironment. Several studies have explored the benefits of surface-bound albumin to enhance NP delivery to tumors. However, it remains unknown how the surface modification process affects the conformation of albumin and the performance of the albumin-modified NPs...

Dopamine (DA) and Folic acid (FA) are co-existing compounds in biological fluids that plays a vital role in central nervous system and human metabolism. DA is an important neurotransmitter in the brain's neural circuits and its diminution often results in Parkinson's disease. Folate is another form of folic acid, which is known as one of the B vitamins. It is utilized as an additive by women during pregnancy in order to prevent the neural tube defects. The present study reports on the fabrication of electrochemical sensor for the simultaneous determination of DA and FA using poly(o-methoxyaniline)-gold (POMA-Au) nanocomposite...
