Poly(lactic acid)-based bio-blends and nanocomposites
El poli(ácido láctico) o PLA tiene un origen 100% renovable y es totalmente biodegrable y, debido a suamplia procesabilidad y sus buenas propiedades mecánicas, se ha convertido en el biopolímero que hadespertado más ...
Improved Mechanical Properties of Compatibilized Polypropylene/Polyamide-12 Blends
(Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2015)
Compatibilized blends of polypropylene (PP) and polyamide-12 (PA12) as a second component were obtained by direct injection molding having first added 20% maleic anhydride-modified copolymer (PP-g-MA) to the PP, which ...
Development of osteoinductive Si-based coatings to improve dental implants' performance
Since Professor Brånemark introduced the new concept of osseointegration and the proposal of titanium as the best choice for implants production, many efforts have been done to modify their surface in order to improve the ...
Energetics and Structural Characterization of the large-scale Functional Motion of Adenylate Kinase
(Nature Publishing, 2015-02-12)
Adenylate Kinase (AK) is a signal transducing protein that regulates cellular energy homeostasis balancing between different conformations. An alteration of its activity can lead to severe pathologies such as heart failure, ...
Triel Bonds, pi-Hole-pi-Electrons Interactions in Complexes of Boron and Aluminium Trihalides and Trihydrides with Acetylene and Ethylene
MP2/aug-cc-pVTZ calculations were performed on complexes of aluminium and boron trihydrides and trihalides with acetylene and ethylene. These complexes are linked through triel bonds where the triel center (B or Al) is ...
