The Guar gum (GG)–lithium bis(trifluoromethanesulphonyl)imide (LiTFSI)-glycerol-based solid biopolymer electrolyte has been investigated. The polymer electrolytes has been prepared via solution casting technique and characterized by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), 3D-laser profilometry a...
A novel modification through pressurized filtration technique of commercial polyethersulfone membranes was proposed using a biopolymer extracted from Moringa oleifera Lam. (MO) along with graphene oxide (GO), in order to decrease fouling and improve the membrane selectivity for the removal of methylene blue dye. The effect of these agents over the ...

AbstractChromium is widely used in industry, and improper disposal of wastewater and industrial residues containing excessive chromium can contaminate water and soil, endangering both environmental and human health. Natural biopolymers and their derivatives have been investigated for removal of chromium (Cr) from wastewater. Cellulose, lignin, tann...
Anthocyanins (ACNs) are naturally derived colorants and antioxidants added to manufactured foods. ACNs were encapsulated in nanocomplexes with chitosan hydrochloride (CHC), carboxymethyl chitosan (CMC) and whey protein isolate (WPI). The ACN-loaded CHC/CMC-WPI nanocomplexes (ACN-CHC/CMC-WPI) showed a preferred particle size (332.20 nm) and zeta pot...

There is growing need for environmentally friendly plastics to tackle problems of waste disposal. This makes it important to explore options to make biodegradable materials for packaging and coating applications. In this study we have leveraged the inherent anti-bacterial, biodegradable properties of chitosan (CS) and anti-bacterial and UV-absorbin...
New multi-walled carbon nanotubes supported on Ti3C2–MXene and chitosan (chit) composite film–based electrochemical sensor for ifosfamide (IFO), acetaminophen (ACOP), domperidone (DOM), and sumatriptan (SUM) have been developed. Ti3C2–MXene was synthesized by a fluoride method. Structural and chemical characterizations suggested the successful prep...

Present work describes enzyme-based optic fiber biosensor for the estimation of inorganic phosphate. A biosensor is based on the inhibitory effect of inorganic phosphate on acid phosphatase activity. Acid phosphatase catalyzes the conversion of p-nitrophenyl phosphate to a colored product p-nitrophenol, which is detected optically at 405 nm. This r...
• Production of alginate gels with diverse metal cations was compared. • Copper and iron ions may interfere in the production of polyphenol-loaded materials. • Epicatechin release rate by metal-alginates increased in the order Ba2+
The undesirable environmental impacts of inappropriate application of pesticides have brought about research into new matrices for controlled release of pesticides. Porous starch citrate biopolymer was designed for the release of carbofuran in this experiment and characterized using Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Scanning Electron ...
Data in Brief
The ATR FT-IR spectra of Pinus ponderosa sporopollenin isolated from pollen spores by enzymatic digestion. Sporopollenin is also isolated by solvent extraction, followed by either acidolysis with phosphoric acid, and acetolysis is reported . The FT-IR spectra are supplemented by XPS data of the isolated sporopollenin samples. The enzymatically i...
