Article
Pliable and water-resistant protein fibers from feathers were developed via continuous one-step spinning and crosslinking using sucrose-tetra-aldehydes. Though flexible protein fibers from feathers were developed, poor wet stability and low tenacity still limit the large and high-end applications of feather-derived fibers. Despite that saccharide a...
Article
Highly ductile and wet-durable bio-composites from keratin reinforced by chitin-nanoparticles with engineered deacetylation have been developed. Though featuring good biodegradability and biocompatibility, poultry-feather-extracted keratin-based composites usually suffered from poor ductility and moisture stabilities because of poor interfacial pro...
Article
Tough keratin fibers from chicken feathers have been produced continuously via controlled assembly of secondary protein structures. Though research on utilization of keratinous wastes began decades ago, very few regenerated products with high quality were developed due to damage to the primary structures during extraction and poor recovery of the s...

10,12‐Pentacosadiynoic acid (PCDA) monomers were mixed with polyurethane (PU) or poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) and the mixtures were electrospun to obtain composite nanofibers that were then photopolymerized via ultraviolet radiation, resulting polydiacetylene (PDA) in the nanofibers. The PDA demonstrated color‐changing properties in the presence of E...
Thesis
Full-text available
Since the emergence of Nanotechnology in the past decades, the development and design of nanofibers demonstrated the great potential for applications in wound treatment. Proliferation of bacteria in wound site is a major challenge in combating wounds. Bio-sensing wound dressing composed of nanofibers has proven to be an effective tool in detecting...
