Book Description :

Biopolymer Grafting: Applications presents the latest research and developments in the practical application of these methods in industry, both to enable polymer scientists and engineers to keep up with the latest research trends, as well as to propose ideas for further research and application. Research into bio-based polymers has become increasingly prevalent. However, due to challenges related to the properties of these materials compared to synthetic polymers-such as their resistance to chemicals or weather-uptake has not dramatically increased yet. As a result, improvements in surface modification of bio-polymers through graft copolymerization are enormously important, because they will widen the scope of their applications. Relevant industries for application of these methods include automotive, construction, food, packaging, agriculture, textiles and paper. This book provides an overview of the developments made in the area of biopolymer-based graft polymers. Advantages, disadvantages and suggestions for future works are discussed, assisting materials scientists and researchers in mapping out the future of these new "green" materials through value addition to enhance their use. Helps researchers and product developers understand the applications and limitations of biopolymer copolymers or copolymers of natural polymers Offers a roadmap to future applications development in a range of different industries, including automotive, biomedical and packaging Increases familiarity with a range of biopolymer grafting processes, enabling materials scientists and engineers to improve material properties and widen the range of potential biopolymer applications

Book Description :

The series Advances in Polymer Science presents critical reviews of the present and future trends in polymer and biopolymer science. It covers all areas of research in polymer and biopolymer science including chemistry, physical chemistry, physics, material science. The thematic volumes are addressed to scientists, whether at universities or in industry, who wish to keep abreast of the important advances in the covered topics. Advances in Polymer Science enjoys a longstanding tradition and good reputation in its community. Each volume is dedicated to a current topic, and each review critically surveys one aspect of that topic, to place it within the context of the volume. The volumes typically summarize the significant developments of the last 5 to 10 years and discuss them critically, presenting selected examples, explaining and illustrating the important principles, and bringing together many important references of primary literature. On that basis, future research directions in the area can be discussed. Advances in Polymer Science volumes thus are important references for every polymer scientist, as well as for other scientists interested in polymer science - as an introduction to a neighboring field, or as a compilation of detailed information for the specialist. Review articles for the individual volumes are invited by the volume editors. Single contributions can be specially commissioned. Readership: Polymer scientists, or scientists in related fields interested in polymer and biopolymer science, at universities or in industry, graduate students

Book Description :

The necessity to better understand the functionality and nutrition of biopolymers in foods and to replace synthetic macromolecules with polymers derived from natural resources in order develop a sustainable economy has been an impetus for research on structure/function relationships and applications for these natural materials. Because of their ability to aggregate, associate, interact and form networks, systems containing biopolymers are extremely complex and elucidating structure/function relationships in these systems is difficult. This symposium series book covers selected recent research and developments involving elucidation of networks, protein-polysaccharide interactions; and isolation, characterization, modification and applications of biopolymers.

Book Description :

Bacterial multidrug-resistance (MDR) results in two million infections in the US alone. Treating such infections is difficult due to the complex genetic and phenotypic mechanisms associated with MDR. While genetic mechanisms are well explored in the literature, phenotypic mechanisms are not. As such, phenotypic changes of resistant Escherichia coli strains upon exposure to ampicillin including bacterial dimensions, volume, surface area, roughness, membrane permeability, wettability, bacterial surface biopolymers' thickness and grafting density, initial cellular adhesion, cellular elasticity and biofilm formation were investigated. To achieve our goal, scanning electron, atomic force, optical and fluorescence microscopies as well as contact angle measurements were performed. Our results indicated that MDR-E. coli resist ampicillin using several mechanisms. Upon exposure to ampicillin at the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC), A5 cells changed their phenotype from elliptical to spherical, decreased their lengths, surface areas, and adhesion and increased their hydrophobicities. When exposed to ampicillin at 20xMIC, A5 cells decreased their size and thicknesses of surface biopolymer brushes and increased their grafting densities and elasticities. With these changes, interactions of cells with ampicillin are expected to be minimized; allowing them to conserve their energies, adapt a dormancy states and become impermeable to ampicillin. In comparison, D4 and A9 cells treated at MIC for 3 hours elongated their cells, increased their surface roughness, adhesion force, and thicknesses of surface biopolymer brushes and decreased their elasticities and grafting densities. These changes suggest that these cells resist ampicillin by increasing their adhesion and biofilm formation to decrease diffusion of ampicillin. After 8 hours of treatment at MIC, D4 and A9 cells increased their elasticities and impermeabilities to ampicillin. Persister cells of A9 resisted ampicillin through increased roughness, grafting densities, adhesion, and elasticities and reduced surface areas. Finally, H5 cells resisted ampicillin through increased biopolymer brush thickness, adhesion and biofilm formation. In summary, this study points to the importance of considering phenotypic mechanisms of bacterial resistance of antibiotics.
