    Photocrosslinked Chitosan Hydrogels Reinforced with Chitosan-Derived no-Graphene Oxide2019In: Macromolecular Chemistry and Physics, ISSN 1022-1352, E-ISSN 1521-3935, Vol. 220, no 13, article id 1900174Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chitosan and chitosan-derived nano-graphene oxide carbon dots are successfully methacrylated and utilized for the fabrication of photocurable hydrogels. The addition of the nano-graphene oxide (nGO) does not significantly delay the polymer network build-up, but significantly reduces the storage modulus of the crosslinked network, with important detrimental effects on the mechanical performance. By replacing nGO with methacrylated M-nGO, the mechanical performance of the crosslinked polymer network is improved with an increase of the storage modulus as a function of increasing the M-nGO content in the photocurable formulation.

    Tunable chitosan hydrogels for adsorption: Property control by biobased modifiers2018In: Carbohydrate Polymers, ISSN 0144-8617, E-ISSN 1879-1344, Vol. 196, p. 135-145Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A sustainable strategy to fabricate chitosan-based composite hydrogels with tunable properties and controllable adsorption capacity of trace pharmaceuticals was demonstrated. Two biobased modifiers were utilized to tune the properties, nano-graphene oxide (nGO) derived from chitosan via microwave-assisted carbonization and oxidation, and genipin as the crosslinking agent. An increase in genipin content facilitated an increase in the degree of crosslinking as shown by improved storage modulus and decreased swelling ratio. Increasing nGO content changed the surface microtopography of the hydrogel which correlated with the surface wettability. nGO also catalyzed the genipin-crosslinking reaction. The hydrogel was further shown to be an effective adsorbent for a common anti-inflammatory drug, diclofenac sodium (DCF), with the removal efficiency ranging from 91 to 100% after 48 h. DCF adsorption efficiency could be tuned through simple alteration of nGO and genipin concentration, which provides promising potential for this environmental-friendly adsorbent in removal of DCF from pharmaceutical waste water.

    Microwave carbonized cellulose for trace pharmaceutical adsorption2018In: Chemical Engineering Journal, ISSN 1385-8947, E-ISSN 1873-3212, Vol. 346, p. 557-566Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A promising sustainable strategy to valorize cellulose to high-value adsorbents for trace pharmaceuticals, like diclofenac sodium (DCF), in the water is demonstrated. Carbon nanospheres (CN) as the DCF adsorbent were derived from cellulose through a one-pot microwave-assisted hydrothermal carbonization method. CN exhibited efficient DCF removal (100% removal of 0.001 mg/mL DCF in 30 s and 59% removal of 0.01 mg/mL DCF in 1 h). The adsorption kinetics and isotherm data were well-fitted with the pseudo-second-order kinetic model and Langmuir model, respectively. The adsorption process was endothermic and spontaneous as confirmed by the thermodynamic parameters. Multiple characterization techniques including SEM/EDS, FTIR, FTIR-imaging and zeta potential were applied to qualitatively investigate the adsorption process. π-π stacking and hydrogen bonding were proposed as the dominant adsorption interactions. CN also demonstrated effective adsorption capacity towards three other commonly-detected contaminants in the wastewater including ketoprofen (KP), benzophenone (BZP), and diphenylamine (DPA), each bearing partial structural similarity with DCF. The affinity of the contaminants towards CN followed the order DPA > BZP > DCF > KP, which could be explained by the different configurations and chemical units. It was speculated that for DCF and KP, the steric hindrance and electrostatic repulsion produced by dissociated carboxyl groups can impede the adsorption process as compared to DPA and BZP. This methodology could offer further insights into the drug adsorption on the cellulose-derived carbon adsorbents and the use of bioderived carbons for treatment of wastewaters contaminated with pharmaceuticals.

    Biobased Nanographene Oxide Creates Stronger Chitosan Hydrogels with Improved Adsorption Capacity for Trace Pharmaceuticals2017In: ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, ISSN 2168-0485, Vol. 5, no 12, p. 11525-11535Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A promising green strategy for the fabrication of fully biobased chitosan adsorbents for wastewater purification is presented. Nanographene oxide (nGO)-type carbon dots were derived from chitosan (nGOCS) or from cellulose (nGOCL) through a two-step process including microwave-assisted hydrothermal carbonization and oxidation. Finally, nGO were evaluated as biobased property enhancers in chitosan hydrogel adsorbents. Macroporous chitosan hydrogels were synthesized by cross-linking with genipin, and the incorporation of nGO into these hydrogels was shown to facilitate the cross-linking reaction leading to more robust 3D cross-linked networks. This was evidenced by the increased storage modulus and by the swelling ratio that decreased from 5.7 for pristine chitosan hydrogel to 2.6 for hydrogel with 5 mg/mL nGOCS and 3.3 for hydrogel with 5 mg/mL nGOCL. As a further proof of the concept the hydrogels were shown to be effective adsorbent for the common anti-inflammatory drug diclofenac sodium (DCF). Here, the addition of nGO promoted the DCF adsorption process leading to 100% removal of DCF after only 5 h. The synergistic effect of electrostatic interactions, hydrogen bonding, and pi-pi stacking could explain the high adsorption of DCF on the hydrogels. The developed biobased CS/nGO hydrogels are thus promising adsorbents with great potential for purification of trace pharmaceuticals from wastewater.

    Recyclable fully biobased chitosan adsorbents spray-dried in one-pot to microscopic size and enhanced adsorption capacity2019In: Biomacromolecules, ISSN 1525-7797, E-ISSN 1526-4602, Vol. 20, no 5, p. 1956-1964Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A facile one-pot spray-drying process was developed for fabrication and in-situ crosslinking of chitosan microspheres to improve the adsorption capacity by microscopic design. A fully biobased nature was achieved by utilizing genipin (GP) as a crosslinking agent and chitosan derived nano-graphene oxide (nGO) as a property tuner. The produced chitosan microspheres were further proven as powerful adsorbents for common wastewater contaminants such as anionic dyes and pharmaceutical contaminants, here modelled by methyl orange (MO) and diclofenac sodium (DCF). By regulating the amount of GP and nGO, as well as by controlling the process parameters including the spraydrying inlet temperature and post-heat treatment, the surface morphology, size, zeta potential and adsorption efficiency of the microspheres could be tuned accordingly. The adsorption efficiency for MO and DCF reached 98.9 and 100 %, respectively. The microspheres retained high DCF adsorption efficiency after six adsorption and desorption cycles and the recyclability was improved by incorporated nGO. The fabricated microspheres, thus, have great potential as reusable and eco-friendly adsorbents.
