    Abstract: An environmental affable, economically feasible and reusable sulfonated adsorbent were constructed by gamma radiation grafting of glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) on non-woven polyethylene fabric and subsequent chemical modification. Highest graft yield of 343.31% was obtained at favourable conditions: 30 kGy radiation dose, 5% monomer concentration, ad... Show More

    Abstract: This study focuses on the influence of electrospinning processes on the properties of electrospun fibres. We have optimised the parameters: distance, voltage, concentration of electrospinning to analyse the influence of these parameters on the properties, in particular the structure and morphology of the nano-fibres. The mass of the required polyam... Show More

    Abstract: The pH-triggered polymers are a sub-class of stimuli-responsive macromolecules. These smart polymers can experience physical or chemical transition due to small pH responses. pH-dependent materials gain great demand within a short period, by considering their potential applications. pH-triggered macromolecules typically possess weak basic or weak a...
