This invention relates to a method for modifying the surface of a material for use with a biological sample or tissue comprising the steps of providing a material having a surface which comprises reactive-functional groups; providing fluorinated molecules having reactive-functional groups complimentary to those on the material surface; using wet chemistry to attach the fluorinated molecules to the surface of the material by reacting the reactive-functional groups of the implant with the complementary reactive-functional groups of the fluorinated molecules. The invention also relates to materials modified by said method and to implants made using said materials. [less ▲]

The aim of this project is to graft a sugar moiety onto polyfunctional natural phenolic compounds. This should enhance their water solubility. The choice of an adequate sugar such as mannose could provide cellular recognition. The synthesis route was first tested on cinnamyl alcohol which is structurally close to the base pattern of natural phenolic compounds. Two compounds are tested to catalyse the glycosilation between cinnamyl alcohol and D-mannose. The first one is an enzyme, the -glucosidase from almond, and the second one is a mineral acid catalyst immobilized on silica. Results show that -glucosidase is able to synthetize cinnamyl mannoside from mannose and cinnamyl alcohol. Furthermore, enzyme-catalyzed route lead to only one product and is so more specific than the chemical route where several products are observed. The obtaining of one product with a unique structure is interesting for the fundamental study of structure-function relationships (Interaction of the product with model membranes by Isothermal Titration Calorymetry and with the Langmuir Trough technique). In a future work, the reaction will be tested with more complex molecules (for example coniferyl alcohol). [less ▲]

Supercritical CO2 has been used as a blowing agent to foam poly(styrene-co-acrylonitrile)-based materials in a single screw extruder specially adapted to allow fluid injection. The cellular morphology depends on foaming temperature, more regular cells being obtained with decreasing extrusion temperature. In a second step, a natural and an organomodified nanoclay have been added for the purpose of imparting some flame resistance to the foamed material. The filler efficiency in reducing sample combustion rate appeared to be dependent on its delamination level inside the matrix and better results were obtained when the organomodified clay was first delaminated in the polymer in an efficient twin screw extruder using water assistance, prior to foaming in the single screw extruder.

A new type of multilayer capsules is designed for use as antibacterial vehicles by taking advantage of the properties of natural polysaccharides. These capsules, prepared by layer-by-layer assembly of hyaluronic acid (HA; see graphic) and quaternized chitosan (QCHI) derivatives onto sacrificial colloidal particles, show distinct killing activities depending on the nature of the polysaccharide on the surface.

The invention relates to a method for separating a first amount of liquid into a plurality of second amounts of liquid, the method comprising the steps of bringing the first amount of liquid (210) into contact with at least one first fibre (110) being arranged substantially vertical, allowing the first amount of liquid to drain of the first fibre, thereby forming a coating film on the fibre, allowing the coating film to decompose, thereby forming a plurality of second amounts of liquid (220), and allowing the second amounts of liquid to drain of the first fibre and being captured at a crossing point (130) being constituted by the first fibre and at least one second fibre (120) being arranged substantially perpendicular to the first fibre and touching the first fibre. Furthermore, the invention relates to an apparatus for separating a first amount of liquid into a plurality of second amounts of liquid. [less ▲]

New micellar macrocontrast agents with improved contrast at high frequencies were designed by grafting a gadolinium based contrast agent onto functional stealth micelles formed by poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(ε-caprolactone) (PEO-b-PCL) in water. As evidenced by relaxometry measurements and the hemolytic CH50 test, the new contrast agents are of interest as MRI blood pool agents. [less ▲]
