  1. 1. Hydrogel-based pH-sensors : Development and characterisation of optical and electrical pH sensors based on stimuli-responsive hydrogels

    Author : Krister Hammarling; Hans-Erik Nilsson; Magnus Engholm; Henrik Andersson; Guido Perrone; Mittuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Hydrogel; fiber optics; printed electronics; pH; sensor;

    Abstract : The ability to measure the chemical parameter pH is of high importance in many areas. With new government regulations and evolving markets, there is a strong motivation for improving such measurements and conducting research on new types of pH sensors and sensor materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ion-Crosslinked Nanocellulose Hydrogels for Advanced Wound Care Applications

    Author : Alex Basu; Natalia Ferraz; Pentti Tengvall; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; nanofibrillated cellulose; wood nanocellulose; ion crosslinking; hydrogel; wound healing; biocompatibility; blood interactions; bacterial interactions; protein carrier; nanotherapeutic; Engineering Science with specialization in Nanotechnology and Functional Materials; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot nanoteknologi och funktionella material;

    Abstract : A current trend in the field of wound care is the development of wound healing materials that are designed to address specific types of wounds or underlying pathologies to achieve improved healing. At the same time, there is a societal drive to replace synthetic materials with renewable alternatives. READ MORE

  3. 3. Hyaluronan Based Biomaterials with Imaging Capacity for Tissue Engineering

    Abstract : This thesis presents the preparation of hyaluronan-based biomaterials with imaging capability and their application as scaffolds in tissue engineering. First, we have synthesized HA derivatives functionalized with different chemoselective groups. READ MORE

  4. 4. Hydrogels of Poly(vinyl alcohol) and Nanocellulose for Ophthalmic Applications : Synthesis, Characterization, Biocompatibility and Drug Delivery Studies

    Author : Gopi Krishna Tummala; Albert Mihranyan; Natalia Ferraz; Cecilia Persson; Jonas Lindh; Che Connon; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; nanocellulose; poly vinyl alcohol ; hydrogel; cornea regeneration; therapeutic lens; Engineering Science with specialization in Nanotechnology and Functional Materials; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot nanoteknologi och funktionella material;

    Abstract : Hydrogels are commonly used materials in ophthalmic care as contact lenses, bandage lenses, corneal implants, and cornea regeneration scaffolds. Hydrogels can be produced by physical, chemical, or radiation crosslinking of hydrophilic polymers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Biosensor surface chemistry for oriented protein immobilization and biochip patterning

    Author : Emma Ericsson; Karin Enander; Sofia Svedhem; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Biochip; biosensor; hydrogel; ligand; orientation; patterning; photochemistry; protein immobilization; surface chemistry; self-assembled monolayer; SAM;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis is focused on two methods for protein immobilization to biosensor surfaces for future applications in protein microarray formats. The common denominator is a surface chemistry based on a gold substrate with a self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of functionalized alkanethiolates. READ MORE
