  1. 1. Cellulose derived carbon dots : From synthesis to evaluation as multifunctional building blocks in biomedical scaffolds

    Author : Nejla Benyahia Erdal; Minna Hakkarainen; Jukka Seppälä; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cellulose; microwave; carbon dots; polycaprolactone; scaffold; mineralization; drug loading; cellulosa; mikrovågor; kolnanopartiklar; polykaprolakton; stödmatris för vävnadsregenerering; mineralisering; läkemedelsbärare; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : The implementation of biobased and biodegradable polymeric materials in biomedical applications is often coupled with issues related to their insufficient mechanical properties or limited bioactivity. In this thesis, a perspective on valorization of biomass is presented, demonstrating the transformation of cellulose into biobased carbon nanomaterials with the potential to serve as multifunctional property enhancers in polycaprolactone (PCL) scaffold materials for tissue engineering.

  2. 2. Controlled Degradation of Polyester-Ethers Revealed by Mass Spectrometry Techniques

    Author : Anders Höglund; Ann-Christine Albertsson; Jukka Seppälä; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Degradation products; biocompatibility; -caprolactone; 1; 5-dioxepan-2-one; 6-hydroxyhexanoic acid; 3- 2-hydroxyethoxy propanoic acid; oligomers; Polymer chemistry; Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : The use of degradable biomedical materials in e.g. tissue engineering and controlled drug delivery has changed medical science during recent decades. The key question is to adapt the material with respect to mechanical properties, surface characteristics, and degradation profile to suit its intended application. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microalgae : future bioresource of the sea?

    Author : Martin Olofsson; Catherine Legrand; Jukka Seppälä; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Microalgae; algal cultivation; bioresource; bioenergy; CO2 mitigation; multi-species community approach; seasonal variation; Akvatisk ekologi; Aquatic Ecology; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; Environmental technology; Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : Unicellular microalgae are a renewable bioresource that can meet the challenge forfood and energy in a growing world population. Using sunlight, CO2, nutrients,and water, algal cells produce biomass in the form of sugars, proteins and oils, allof which carry commercial value as food, feed and bioenergy. READ MORE

  4. 4. Long-term properties of polyethylene films : efficiency of a natural antioxidant

    Author : Clara Strandberg; Ann-Christine Albertsson; Jukka Seppälä; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Polymer Technology; alfa-tocopherol; Polyethylene PE ; Thermal aging; Infrared Spectroscopy FT-IR ; Chemiluminescence CL ; Solid-phase microextraction SPME ; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : There is a growing awareness of the risks of pollution in biological systems and one potential problem is the synthetic antioxidants, used for e.g. the stabilisation of polymeric materials. Natural antioxidants are an interesting alternative, if the high efficiency and thermal stability of the synthetic compounds can be reached. READ MORE

  5. 5. Functional Degradable Polymers by a Radical Chemistry approach

    Author : Jenny Undin; Ann-Christine Albertsson; Anna Finne-Wistrand; Jukka Seppälä; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : One class of polymers that is inherently of great value for many applications is the aliphatic polyesters. Such polymers are very suitable for use as temporary guides, scaffolds, for tissue formation and other biomedical applications, due to their biocompatibility, degradability and appropriate mechanical properties.
