A novel marine bacterium Exiguobacterium marinum a-1 isolated from in situ plastisphere for degradation of additive-free polypropylene.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental pollution (Barking, Essex : 1987) [Environ Pollut] 2023 Nov 01; Vol. 336, pp. 122390. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Aug 17.

Authors:

Abstract: As the ecological niche most closely associated with polymers, microorganisms in the 'plastisphere' have great potential for plastics degradation. Microorganisms isolated from the 'plastisphere' could colonize and degrade commercial plastics containing...

Preparation of Rechargeable Antibacterial Polypropylene/N-Halamine Materials Based on Melt Blending and Surface Segregation.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): ACS applied materials & interfaces [ACS Appl Mater Interfaces] 2023 Oct 11; Vol. 15 (40), pp. 47531-47540. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Oct 03.

Authors:

Abstract: Polypropylene (PP) has been widely used in health care and food packaging fields, however, it lacks antibacterial properties. Herein, we prepared the polymeric antibacterial agents (MPP-NDAM) by an in situ amidation reaction between 2,4-diamino-6-dialk...

Induction of a different immune response in non-titanized compared to titanized polypropylene meshes.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Acta biomaterialia [Acta Biomater] 2023 Oct 01; Vol. 169, pp. 363-371. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Aug 13.

Abstract: It is well known that pelvic organ prolapse (POP) significantly reduces the quality of life of affected women and in many cases requires corrective surgery. Aim of the study was to compare the immune response against titanized versus non-titanized mesh...

Enhancing the Sound and Thermal Insulation Properties of Polypropylene Foam by Preparing High Melt Strength Polypropylene.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Macromolecular rapid communications [Macromol Rapid Commun] 2023 Oct; Vol. 44 (20), pp. e2300344. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Aug 13.

Authors:

Abstract: High-performance polypropylene (PP) foam is a vital polymer product in industrial areas. However, the poor melt strength of ordinary PP homopolymer limits its foaming molding. In this work, high melt strength polypropylene (HMSPP) is prepared by using ...

Polypropylene composite mesh modified by polyurethane gel with ROS scavenging and anti-inflammatory effects for pelvic floor repair.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Colloids and surfaces. B, Biointerfaces [Colloids Surf B Biointerfaces] 2023 Oct; Vol. 230, pp. 113518. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Aug 19.

Authors:

Abstract: Development of an inflammation modulating polypropylene (PP) mesh in pelvic floor repair is an urgent clinical need. This is because PP mesh for pelvic floor repair can cause a series of complications related to foreign body reactions (FBR) in postoper...

Iridodialysis Repair With Intrascleral Fixation of Flattened Flanged Polypropylene Suture.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Retina (Philadelphia, Pa.) [Retina] 2023 Dec 01; Vol. 43 (12), pp. 2113-2117.

Authors:

Abstract: Purpose: To present the flattened flanged polypropylene suture technique developed to obtain round and stable pupils in patients with iridodialysis.Methods: After performing a fornix-based conjunctival peritomy, a flange was created at the tip of a 6.0...

Determining weathering-induced heterogeneous oxidation profiles of polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene using laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Chemosphere [Chemosphere] 2023 Dec; Vol. 343, pp. 140105. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Sep 13.

Abstract: Weathering-induced polymer degradation is typically heterogeneous which plays an integral part in fragmentation. Despite that, the current selection of techniques to investigate such heterogeneities, especially beneath the sample surface, is sparse. We...

Fabrication of Polypropylene Nanoplastics Via Thermal Oxidation Reaction for Human Cells Responsiveness Studies.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Langmuir : the ACS journal of surfaces and colloids [Langmuir] 2023 Nov 07; Vol. 39 (44), pp. 15563-15571. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Oct 26.

Abstract: With the current worldwide increasing use of plastics year by year, nanoplastics (NPs) have become a global threat to environmental and public health concerns. Among plastics, polypropylene (PP) is widely used in industrial and medical applications. Ow...

Stability of temocillin in outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy: is it a real option?

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): The Journal of antimicrobial chemotherapy [J Antimicrob Chemother] 2023 Oct 03; Vol. 78 (10), pp. 2451-2456.

Abstract: Background: Temocillin is an interesting alternative to carbapenems for susceptible Enterobacteriaceae. Although its use in outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy (OPAT) programmes has generated interest, this has been hampered by the lack of stab...

Combined toxic effects of polypropylene and perfluorooctanoic acid on duckweed and periphytic microorganisms.

Publication Type: Academic Journal

Source(s): Environmental science and pollution research international [Environ Sci Pollut Res Int] 2023 Oct; Vol. 30 (50), pp. 108606-108616. Date of Electronic Publication: 2023 Sep 26.

Authors:

Abstract: Microplastics and perfluorooctanoic acid coexist in the aquatic environment. Duckweed was exposed to a range of concentrations (0.1-1000 μg L -1 ) of solutions containing polypropylene (PP) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) for 14 days to measure their...
