Synthesis, identification and application of the novel metal-organic framework Fe3O4@PAA@ZIF-8 for the drug delivery of ciprofloxacin and investigation of antibacterial activity. Artif Cells Nanomed Biotechnol. 2019 Dec;47(1):2024-2030 Authors: Esfahanian M, Ghasemzadeh MA, Razavian SMH Abstract Today, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for the release of drugs have been studied extensively. In this research, we have investigated the novel magnetic framework including Fe3O4@PAA@ZIF-8 for the delivery of ciprofloxacin (CIP) antibiotic. Moreover, the antibacterial activity of Fe3O4@PAA@ZIF-8 and Fe3O4@PAA@ZIF-8@CIP screened against Staphylococcus aureus ( S. aureus) and Escherichia coli ( E. coli) bacteria. The structure of the nano carrier, as well as the encapsulation of the drug in the framework was confirmed by the Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-Vis), Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), X-ray crystallography (XRD), Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) analysis. The results of this study showed that 93% of the CIP was loaded on the synthesized framework. Drug release was done at pH: 7.4 and pH: 5 within 2 d, resulting about 73% release of the drug.

In this study, the silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were synthesized using a strain Bacillus subtilis KMS2-2 by extracellularly. The effect of calcination (200 °C for 30 min) on structural characteristics and antibacterial activity of the AgNPs were investigated. The inhibitory effect of AgNPs against pathogenic bacteria such as Pseudomonas fluorescens MTCC 1749, Proteus mirabilis MTCC 425, Escherichia coli MTCC 1610, Bacillus cereus and Staphylococcus aureus MTCC 2940 was tested by agar-well diffusion method. The synthesized AgNPs before and after calcination were spherical crystalline in nature and had size range fro...

Platelets are anucleate cells produced by megakaryocytes. In recent years, a robust body of literature supports the evolving role of platelets as key sentinel and effector cells in infectious diseases, especially critical in bridging hemostatic, inflammatory, and immune continuums. Upon intravascular pathogen invasion, platelets can directly sense viral, parasitic, and bacterial infections through pattern recognition receptors and integrin receptors or pathogen: immunoglobulin complexes through Fc and complement receptors—although our understanding of these interactions remains incomplete. Constantly scanning for are...

utarowska Studies on the functionalization of materials used for the construction of filtering facepiece respirators (FFRs) relate to endowing fibers with biocidal properties. There is also a real need for reducing moisture content accumulating in such materials during FFR use, as it would lead to decreased microorganism survival. Thus, in our study, we propose the use of superabsorbent polymers (SAPs), together with a biocidal agent (biohalloysite), as additives in the manufacturing of polypropylene/polyester (PP/PET) multifunctional filtering material (MFM). The aim of this study was to evaluate the MFM for stability...

Abstract Metal-organic framework (MOF) based graphene oxide (GO) recently merits of attention because of the relative correspondence of GO with metal ions and organic binding linkers. Furthermore, introducing the GO to the Co-MOF to make a new nanoporous hybrid have are improved the selectivity and stability of the Co-MOF. Here the graphene oxide/cobalt metal organic framework (GO/Co-MOF) was synthesized by a solvothermal process using cobalt salt and terephthalic acid and used for biocidal activity, against the growth of the Gram-negative Escherichia coli and Gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus bacteria. X-ray di...

Abstract A novel Z-scheme AgBr/Ag2MoO4@ZnO photocatalyst was fabricated via a hydrothermal process and in situ growth method. X-ray powder diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy were used to determine the structure of the photocatalyst. The results showed that the composites were tightly connected by the (101) lattice plane of ZnO, the (222) plane of Ag2MoO4 and the (200) lattice plane of AgBr. Because of the strong redox activity and good separability of photoelectrons and holes induced by the Z-scheme structure, the photodegradation rate for ciprofloxacin (CIP) solution wa...
