    Maione, Silvana; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Pérez Madrigal, Mª del Mar; Cativiela, Carlos; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    Biodegradable polyester fibers have been loaded with two engineered analogues of gramicidin soviet. In these cyclic peptide derivatives, which were designed in a previous work to stabilize the bioactive conformation while ...
  • Biodegradable nanofibrous scaffolds as smart delivery vehicles for amino acids 

    Maione, Silvana; Pérez Madrigal, Maria del Mar; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Díaz Andrade, Angélica María; Catiavela, Carlos; Franco García, María Lourdes; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (2017)
    Article
    Open Access
    The encapsulation of amino acids (AAs) and their correct preservation before they are ingested are challenging tasks. Nonpolar (l-alanine and l-phenylalanine), polar (l-cysteine hydrochloride and l-asparagine), and charged ...
  • Effect of the graft ratio on the properties of polythiophene-g-poly(ethylene glycol)
