  • Cell responses to electrical pulse stimulation for anticancer drug release 

    Puiggalí Jou, Anna; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Alemán Llansó, Carlos (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Electrical stimulation is an attractive approach to tune on-demand drug release in the body as it relies on simple setups and requires typically 1 V or less. Although many studies have been focused on the development of ...
  • Study on the control of porosity in films of polythiophene derivatives 

    Ruano Torres, Guillem; Alemán Llansó, Carlos; Torras Costa, Juan (Elsevier, 2019-11-07)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Conducting polymers typically exhibit different oxidation states, which are easily interchangeable among them by means of the application of an electrical potential. In this work, we present a theoretical and experimental ...
  • Analysis of crater formation in buried NG pipelines: A survey based on past accidents and evaluation of domino effect 

    Ramírez Camacho, Jaime Giovanni; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Amaya Gómez, Rafael; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Muñoz Giraldo, Felipe; Casal Fàbrega, Joaquim (2019-03-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    The formation of a crater by the abrupt and catastrophic rupture of a high-pressure pipeline can be highly relevant, especially when the crater uncovers other pipelines, which could undergo a domino effect with a significant ...
  • Crystalline structures and structural transitions of copolyamides derived from 1,4-diaminobutane and different ratios of glutaric and azelaic acids 

    Olmo, Cristian; Casas Becerra, María Teresa; Martínez Guil, Juan Carlos; Franco García, María Lourdes; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2019-04-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Copolyamides derived from even 1,4-butanediamine and different mixtures of odd dicarboxylic acids with a great difference in the number of methylene groups (i.e., glutaric and azelaic acids with 3 and 7 groups, respectively) ...
  • Preparation of medicated polylactide micropieces by means of ultrasonic technology 

    Olmo, Cristian; Franco García, María Lourdes; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2019-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    A technology based on the application of ultrasound as an energy source was applied to get polylactide (PLA) micropieces with minimum degradation and processing time. This requirement could be even shorter than 1.5 s. The ...
  • New drugs complexed with AT-rich DNA against neglected diseases 

    Millán, Cinthia; Acosta Reyes, Francisco Javier; Lagartera, Laura; Saperas Plana, Núria; Dardonville, Cristophe; De Koning, Harry Pieter; Campos López, Josefina de Lourdes (2019)

  • Crystallization kinetics of chain extended poly(L-lactide)s having different molecular structures 

    Yousefzade, Omid; Jeddi, Javad; Franco García, María Lourdes; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Garmabi, Hamid (2020-01-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Poly(L-lactide)s (PLLAs) with different chain structures were prepared by reactive melt processing and using Joncryl ADR as chain extender. Results of gel permeation chromatography (GPC) revealed that chain extended PLLAs ...
  • Nanocomposites based on chain extended poly(l-lactic acid)/carboxylated carbon nanotubes: crystallization kinetics and lamellar morphology 

    Yousefzade, Omid; Franco García, María Lourdes; Nami, Mahsa; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi; Garmabi, Hamid (2019-06-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Isothermal and nonisothermal crystallization kinetics of poly(l-lactide) and its nanocomposites with different multiwalled carbon nanotubes (i.e., pristine and functionalized) were investigated. The effects of chain extension ...
  • Non-isothermal crystallization kinetics of poly(4-hydroxybutyrate) biopolymer 

    Keridou, Ina; Valle Mendoza, Luis Javier del; Funk, Lutz; Turon, Pau; Franco García, María Lourdes; Puiggalí Bellalta, Jordi (2019-08-05)
    Article
    Open Access
    The non-isothermal crystallization of the biodegradable poly(4-hydroxybutyrate) (P4HB) has been studied by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and polarizing optical microscopy (POM). In the first case, Avrami, ...
  • European port trends in environmental issues 

    Puig Duran, Martí; Raptis, Sotiris; Wooldridge, Chris; Darbra Roman, Rosa Maria (2019)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper presents the current environmental performance of the European Port Sector, based on the 2018 results of a wide representation of EcoPorts members (90 ports). All the information presented in this research comes ...
  • Port Futuri’s expansion plan. Representative of local community and civic society
