  • Multifunctional cellulose esters by olefin cross-metathesis and thiol-Michael addition 

    Meng, Xiangtao; Roy Choudhury, Shreya; Edgar, Kevin J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-04-25)
    Olefin cross-metathesis (CM) has been shown to be a versatile, mild, modular, and efficient approach to polysaccharide modification. One issue with regard to this approach is the susceptibility of the initial α,β-unsaturated ...
  • Amphiphilic hydroxyalkyl cellulose derivatives for amorphous solid dispersion prepared by olefin cross-metathesis 

    Dong, Yifan; Mosquera-Giraldo, Laura I.; Troutman, Jacob; Skogstad, Brittny; Taylor, Lynne S.; Edgar, Kevin J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-07-07)
    Olefin cross-metathesis (CM) has enabled design and synthesis of diverse, amphiphilic cellulose ether derivatives (e.g. of ethyl and methyl cellulose). In this paper, hydroxyalkyl cellulose was selected as a hydrophilic ...
  • Variegatic acid from Serpula lacyrmans reduces FeIII and interacts with other fungal metabolites for location-specific generation and scavenging of reactive oxygen species 

    Zhu, Yuan; Mahaney, James; Jellison, Jody; Cao, Jinzhen; Gressler, Julia; Hoffmeister, Dirk; Goodell, Barry (2016)
    This study aims to clarify the role of variegatic acid (VA) secreted from Serpula lacyrmans in a chelator-mediated Fenton (CMF) system, including FeIII reduction and the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the ...
  • Preparation and evaluation of nanocellulose-gold nanoparticle nanocomposites for SERS applications 

    Wei, Haoran; Rodriguez, Katia; Renneckar, Scott; Leng, Weinan; Vikesland, Peter J. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-06-09)
    Nanocellulose is of research interest due to its extraordinary optical, thermal, and mechanical properties. The incorporation of guest nanoparticles into nanocellulose substrates enables production of novel nanocomposites ...
  • Imparting functional variety to cellulose ethers via olefin cross-metathesis 

    Dong, Yifan; Edgar, Kevin J. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-04-09)
    Olefin cross-metathesis is a valuable new approach for imparting functional variety to cellulose ethers. Starting from commercially available ethyl cellulose, terminally unsaturated alkyl groups were appended as metathesis ...
  • Cytotoxicity and Cellular Uptake of Cellulose Nanocrystals 

    Dong, Shuping; Hirani, Anjali A.; Colacino, Katelyn R.; Lee, Yong Woo; Roman, Maren (2012-09-21)
    There is growing evidence that filamentous nanoparticles offer advantages over spherical ones in drug delivery applications. The purpose of this study was to assess the potential of rod-like, plant-derived cellulose ...
  • Toxicity of Cellulose Nanocrystals: A Review 

    Roman, Maren (2015-02)
    Cellulose nanocrystals (CNCs) are a biobased nanomaterial attracting increasing interest for a range of potential applications. This article reviews the current literature on the pulmonary, oral, dermal, and cytotoxicity ...
  • Quantitative Genetic Background of the Host Influences Gut Microbiomes in Chickens 

    Zhao, L. L.; Wang, G.; Siegel, P.; He, C.; Wang, H. Z.; Zhao, W. J.; Zhai, Z. X.; Tian, F. W.; Zhao, J. X.; Zhang, H.; Sun, Z. K.; Chen, W.; Zhang, Y.; Meng, H. (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-01)
    Host genotype and gender are among the factors that influence the composition of gut microbiota. We studied the population structure of gut microbiota in two lines of chickens maintained under the same husbandry and dietary ...
