Three-dimensional-printed calcium alginate/graphene oxide porous adsorbent with super-high lead ion adsorption ability in aqueous solution

Separation and Purification Technology 2023 Volume 326, Article 124757

Using three-dimensional (3D) printing technology, a 3D calcium alginate/graphene oxide (3D CA/GO) adsorbent, with a hierarchical macroporous structure, was successfully constructed. Owing to the optimized construction process, the 3D CA/GO showed an enhanced adsorption capacity (490.2 mg/g at pH = 3.0) for lead (Pb(II)) in aqueous solution, which was two times higher than reported in the literature). Meanwhile, the selective adsorption ratio of 3D CA/GO for Pb(II) reached 99.8% when positive ions occurred. In addition, after eight adsorption–desorption cycles, the adsorption capacity did not experience a significant decrease and the structure remained stable. Meanwhile, the adsorbed Pb(II) could be eluted…

Zein regulating apatite mineralization, degradability, in vitro cells responses and in vivo osteogenesis of 3D-printed scaffold of n-MS/ZN/PCL ternary composite

RSC Advances 2018 Volume 8, Pages 18745-18756

Bioactive and degradable scaffolds of nano magnesium silicate (n-MS)/zein (ZN)/poly(caprolactone) (PCL) ternary composites were prepared by 3D-printing method. The results showed that the 3D-printed scaffolds possessed controllable pore structure, and pore morphology, pore size, porosity and pore interconnectivity of the scaffolds can be efficiently adjusted. In addition, the apatite-mineralization ability of the scaffolds in simulated body fluids was obviously improved with the increase of ZN content, in which the scaffold with 20 w% ZN (C20) possessed excellent apatite-mineralization ability. Moreover, the degradability of the scaffolds was significantly enhanced with the increase of ZN content in the scaffolds. The degradation of…
