Yunusov Khaydar Ergashovich, arymsakov Abdushkur Abdukhalilovich, Rashidova Sayora Sharaphovna
Open Journal of Polymer Chemistry (OJPChem) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/ojpchem.2018.84006
Abstract: Stable silver nanoparticles in a sodium-carboxymethylcellulose hydrogel with a substitution degree of 0.65 - 0.85 and polymerization degree of 200 - 600 have been synthesized. Physical, chemical properties and antimicrobial activity of sodium-carboxymethylcellulose hydrogels contained silver nanoparticles were studied. The shape, number and size of silver nanoparticles (SNP) incorporated into the structure of hydrogels of sodium-carboxymethylcellulose were studied by using UV-VIS spectroscopy, transmission electron and atomic force microscopy. It was found that the silver nitrate concentration increase in sodium-carboxymethylcellulose solutions, as well as photoirradiation of the hydrogel lead to the changes of the silver nanoparticles size and shape. The studies have shown that the spherical silver nanoparticles of 5 - 35 nm in the structure of sodium-carboxymethylcellulose hydrogel possess high bactericidal activity. Our results have shown that changing of size and shape of silver nanoparticles contributes to appearance of their biological activity.

Abstract: samples of carboxymethylcellulose were prepared by the heterogeneous reaction of the soda/anthraquinone pulp obtained from sugar cane bagasse. the less substituted samples (ds<1,0) and the more substituted ones (ds> 1,0) showed different behaviors concerning to: i) the dependence of pkap on the degree of neutralization; ii) the agreement between ds values determined by titrations and by 1h nmr spectroscopy and iii) the agreement between the experimental values of transport coefficients (f) and the ones calculated by applying the manning theoretical approach. all samples showed a block distribution of substituents which, in the case of the less substituted samples, are short and well separated, favoring the occurrence of associative interactions and of aggregation. electrostatic excluded volume effects, which are more important for the more substituted samples, inhibit the aggregation and may explain the behavior of these samples.

Abstract: we report here on some aspects of the acetylation in licl/n,n-dimethylacetamide, dmac, of untreated and mercerized sisal cellulose, hereafter designated as sisal and m-sisal, respectively. fiber mercerization by naoh solution has resulted in the following changes: 29.9% decrease in the index of crystallinity; 16.2% decrease in the degree of polymerization and 9.3% increase in α-cellulose content. a light scattering study of solutions of sisal, m-sisal, microcrystalline and cotton celluloses in licl/dmac has shown that they are present as aggregates, with (an apparent) average aggregation numbers of 5.2, 3.2, 9.8, and 35.3, respectively. the presence of these aggregates affects the accessibility of cellulose during its functionalization. a study of the evolution of the degree of substitution, ds, of cellulose acetate as a function of reaction time showed an increase up to 5 h, followed by a decrease at 7 h. possible reasons for this decrease are discussed. as expected, m-sisal gave a higher ds that its untreated counterpart.

Abstract: degree substitution (ds), morphological characteristics, x-ray diffraction (xrd), pasting properties, thermal properties and amylopectin chain length distribution were used to study the effect of botanical source (potato starch, ps; and maize starch, ms) and reagent type (acetic anhydride and vinyl acetate) on starch acetyration. the reagent type produced a different effect depending on the botanical source: for ms, the reaction with acetic anhydride produced higher ds than ps, whereas that in the reaction with vinyl acetate resulted in an inverse pattern. in general, modified starches had a maltase cross, except for ps when acetylated with acetic anhydride. native ps had the highest crystallinity level and trie acetylated starches had a decreased amount of crystallinity (between 10% and 12 %) compared to the native starches. acetylation produced a decrease in pasting temperature, and changes in the pasting characteristics were more evident wish higher ds. structural changes in starch components due to the acetylation reaction produced a decrease in the temperature and enthalpy of gelatinization. in general, acetylated starches had minor retrogradation. regardless of reagent used, acetylated ms had higher retrogradation than acetylated ps. higher ds values resulted in greater amounts of short chains in both starches.

Journal of Applied Sciences , 2010,
Abstract: The cellulose powder was converted to carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) by etherification process using sodium monochloroacetate and sodium hydroxide. There are two reaction occur simultaneously during carboxymethylation that are the primary reaction which produces pure CMC and side reaction that produces undesired sodium glycolate. The carboxymethylation reaction was optimized against the reaction temperature, reaction time, SMCA concentration, NaOH concentration and the ratio solvent of ethanol:isopropanol. The Degree of Substitution (DS), viscosity and yield were analyzed with respect to the reaction conditions using response surface methodology. The method of analyzing the degree of substitution of CMC is back titration method. The produced CMC was identified by using Fourier Transform Infrared spectra (FTIR). The maximum DS obtained is 0.94, maximum yield is 22.0730 g and maximum viscosity 15.2 cP. After optimization of reaction conditions is carried out, the optimized DS obtained is 0.9424 and the optimized viscosity is 10.1 cP with yield is 22.1024 g.

Abstract: The physicochemical nature of chitin and chitosan, which influences the biomedical activity of these compounds, is strongly related to the source of chitin and the conditions of the chitin/chitosan production process. Apart from widely described key factors such as weight-averaged molecular weight (M W) and degree of N-acetylation (DA), other physicochemical parameters like polydispersity (M W/M N), crystallinity or the pattern of acetylation ( P A) have to be taken into consideration. From the biological point of view, these parameters affect a very important factor—the solubility of chitin and chitosan in water and organic solvents. The physicochemical properties of chitosan solutions can be controlled by manipulating solution conditions (temperature, pH, ionic strength, concentration, solvent). The degree of substitution of the hydroxyl and the amino groups or the degree of quaternization of the amino groups also influence the mechanical and biological properties of chitosan samples. Finally, a considerable research effort has been directed towards developing safe and efficient chitin/chitosan-based products because many factors, like the size of nanoparticles, can determine the biomedical characteristics of medicinal products. The influence of these factors on the biomedical activity of chitin/chitosan-based products is presented in this report in more detail.
