Electrospun Micro and Nanofibrous Membrane for Tissue Engineering Book Review:

Recently, in the field of tissue engineering, fabrication of three dimensional (3D) electrospun membrane is much emphasized. 3D scaffold fabricated from multi-layered electrospun membrane possess both the benefits of nanofibrous and microfibrous scale morphology in one scaffold. In this book, layered composite scaffolds or membranes were fabricated using blend of Polycaprolactone (PCL) /Chitosan and PCL layer-by-layer using multilayer electrospinning techniique. Characterization of membranes were conducted using several techniques. Using optimized solution concentration and processing parameters, the composite PCL/Chitosan and PCL layer-by-layer membrane were successfully fabricated. From the scanning electron micrographs, it was observed that the composite electrospun membranes produced microfibers and nanofibers morphology within single scaffold. In another part of this book, PCL was blended with Chitosan using a common solvent formic acid and acetic acid. The ratio of concentration of the polymers was varied in order to form different level of viscosity of polymeric solutions. Then the PCL/Chitosan nanofibers were fabricated via electrospinning technique.

Electrospun Nylon 6 Nanofiber Membranes for Capturing Exhaled Breath Aerosols Containing Submicron and Nano Size Particles Book Review:

In this thesis, electrospun nanofibrous membranes for capturing submicron particles from simulated exhaled breath are investigated. Although it is known that aerosols of Influenza are responsible for increased rates of infection, studies have yet to succeed in quantifying sub-micron Influenza particles present in contagious exhaled breath. Therefore, here we observe the extent to which airborne sub-micron particles, modelling the size, and surface charge of exhaled viral particles, can be captured by electrospun Nylon-6 nanofiber media. An aerosol of salt particles was generated from an aqueous sodium chloride solution. This solution modeled an exhaled Influenza type aerosol because the majority of droplet sizes ranged from 0.52[MICRO SIGN]m to 4.0[MICRO SIGN]m; the typical size range of aqueous droplets in exhaled saliva. A large animal respirator simulated the process of human breathing. During exhalation, the respirator dispersed the salt aerosol to nanofiber membranes for capture. The Nylon-6 membranes used in this study were uniformly electrospun on a large scale [15cm by 96cm] with targeted fiber diameters ranging from 100 nm to 200 nm. FESEM (Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy) and EDX (Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy) were used to show that these membranes captured salt particles ranging from 30nm - 200nm (the viral particle size range reported most difficult to isolate). Nylon-6 nanofiber membranes could overall capture up to 39% higher salt aerosol concentrations than the control membranes, and did not break during the test process. BET (BrunauerEmmett-Teller) and porometry analysis of the electrospun membranes show that small pore sizes (104nm - 122nm) and high surface areas (44m2/g - 58m2/g) contribute to better aerosol capture than for the control membranes. Furthermore, a cascade impactor was employed to quantify the changes in salt capture before and after the nanofiber filter membrane was using in the breathing apparatus. Compared to the control membranes, the highest percent of smallest sized aerosol droplets, between 0.52 m - 1.55 m, can be captured by all types of electrospun membranes. Additionally, to increase hydrophilicity of the Nylon-6 membranes, poly(acrylic acid) was grafted to the Nylon-6 membrane by two methods. In the first method, poly(acrylic acid) was grafted onto the chain-end surfaces of the Nylon-6 electrospun membrane using the amine-to-carboxylic acid coupling agent: EDC (1-ethyl-3-(3dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide hydrochloride). For the second method, the electrospun membranes were mutually gamma irradiated in an acrylic acid monomer solution to initiate free radical polymerization grafting. The second method resulted in high add-on of acrylic acid in the form of monodisperse beads on the surface. Found via FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared) analysis, there is 17% - 20% chance of grafting occurring, with up to a 9% overall weight increase in the membranes. The crystalline structure of the Nylon-6 is also significantly modified in the process, with higher Hm values. Overall surface area, porosity, and mechanical properties of the membranes decreased, and the salt particle capture did not improve, however. The end use goal for the plain and surface modified nanofiber membranes is that they can serve as effective wearable textile materials to supplement the capture, and characterization, of aerosol-driven nanoscale infectious particles exhaled from human breath.

Development of Low Pressure Filter Testing Vessel and Analysis of Electrospun Nanofiber Membranes for Water Treatment Book Review:

Polymeric electrospun nanofibrous membranes were investigated for use in water filtration applications. A customized pressure vessel was designed according to the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) to be used to test the membrane for its filtration properties. Low pressure filtration was focused on due to previous research that suggested that high pressure water testing of electrospun polymeric nanofibrous filters could decrease the filtration capability by expanding the pore size within the membrane. During testing it was found that this technology does reduce pathogens but will only remove a portion of them per pass, and thus is not adequate for use as a one pass pathogenic filter. The filter was found to be well suited for the reduction in the amount of suspended and dissolved solids, increasing clarity, and reduction of odor. A scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to study the electrospun fibrous pads to narrow down on an ideal parameter set that gave the desirable characteristics for the application of filtration. The composition of the polymer, and electrospinning parameters, were also manipulated to give a hydrophilic, or absorbent, membrane to facilitate a low pressure differential for filtration. It was demonstrated that this type of filtration membrane can be manufactured inexpensively while not requiring electricity or other external power source to generate large pressure differentials and flow. This is desirable because it allows this technology to be used in areas where both basic utilities and clean water are limited, for example in remote Africa and India. It was also shown that this filter has benefits over best selling commercial water filters currently on the market. This technology may be best suited for enhancement of tap water where healthier and cleaner water is desired. Pre-filtration of reverses osmosis (RO) or other ultrafine filter system, to increase the life of the primary filter while decreasing fouling and maintenance may be another application.
