Biodegradable arterial implants based on zinc have been found to suppress neointimal hyperplasia, suggesting that biodegradable materials containing zinc may be used to construct vascular implants with a reduced rate of restenosis. However, the molecular mechanism has remained unclear. In … Continue reading
Our visiting scholar from the Northeastern University in Shenyang published a new paper entitled Effect of Nano-sized Roughness on the Flotation of Magnesite Particles and Particle-Bubble Interactions in the Minerals Engineering journal. In this study, magnesite was ground in stainless-steel … Continue reading
Understanding the surface interactions and reactivity of Zn-based biomaterials with constituents of physiological fluids such as proteins and ions is essential for an accurate evaluation of biomaterial corrosion initiation and progression. In our new contribution entitled Albumins Inhibit the Corrosion … Continue reading
Advances made in fabrication of patterned surfaces with well-defined dimensions of topographic features and their lateral dissemination drive the progress in interpretation of liquid spreading, adhesion and retreat on engineered solid surfaces. Despite extensive studies on liquid droplet spreading and … Continue reading
