Speech Title: Biodegradable Nanoporous Microspheres by RAFT and UV Irradiation
Abstract: Nanoporous microspheres based on polycaprolactone (PCL), polylactide (PLA) and photodegradable poly(methyl vinyl ketone) (PMVK) were synthesized and characterized. In this study, biodegradable triblock copolymers were first synthesized by ring opening polymerization of lactide followed by RAFT polymerization of methyl vinyl ketone (MVK), and then used to fabricate microsphere by emulsion method. In order to polymerize by RAFT method, macro-CTA (chain transfer agent) was synthesized by reacting carboxylic acid-terminated CTA, S-1-dodecyl-S’-(α,α’-dimethyl-α’’-acetic acid) trithiocarbonate (DDMAT) with hydroxyl terminated PLA-PCL-PLA triblock copolymer, and then used for the synthesis of block copolymer with methyl vinyl ketone (MVK). The synthesized block copolymers were characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR spectroscopies. Gel permeation chromatography (GPC) was used to evaluate molecular weight and molecular weight distribution and monitor photodegradabilities of block copolymers. The morphology of microparticles before and after UV irradiation confirmed by SEM and TEM images showed that spherical microspheres before UV irradiation were changed to disk-shaped microparticles, owing to collapsing of PMVK moieties by UV irradiation.

Speech Title: Flax fibers based composites
Abstract: In order to develop the use of natural fiber based materials in structural parts, several challenges have to be undertaken. Looking particularly to flax fibers, which are among the strongest natural fibers in the world, the first challenge is the reduction of the scattering of the derived composite properties. It has been shown that the choice of fiber variety or the fiber location in the stem can reduce notably the dispersion of not only mechanical properties but also morphological and chemical characteristics. Also, when processing composites, the reinforcement material occurs under the shape of bundles instead of elementary fibers. This results in a need to find a compromise between an easy handling and an improved mechanical interest. The characterization of the middle lamella enables the modelling of the bundle behaviour, and thus the optimization of the reinforcement size, directly linked to the level of retting. Finally, compared to glass fibers, flax fibers exhibit lower weight and higher damping properties. This may open new opportunities of applications of the derived composites, for instance in areas where dynamic stresses are applied and where lightering is a significant benefit.

Speech Title: Amorphous medicated nanocomposites fabricated using modified coaxial electrospinning
Abstract: The dissolution and absorbance of poorly water-soluble drugs is a long-existing and intractable question in the field of pharmaceutics. Over the past several decades, a series of pharmaceutical polymers and also many advanced nano techniques have been exploited to resolve this problem. New method for providing feasible approaches to improve the dissolution of these drugs is always sought after in both laboratory and industry. In the present job, modified coaxial electrospinning, was explored to create amorphous medicated nanocomposites for a poorly water-soluble drug. The polymer carrier is a hydrophilic polymer hydroxypropyl methylcellulose and the model drug is tamoxifen citrate, an anti-cancer active ingredient. Compared with those fibers fabricated using a traditional single-fluid electrospinning, the nanocomposites from the modified coaxial processes showed higher quality in term of fibers’ morphology, surface smoothness, diameter and size distributions. The nancomposites were able to release the loaded cargoes all at once when they were put into the dissolution media, showing faster dissolution rates than the raw drug particles in double orders of magnitude. The reported protocols not only provided a tool for poorly water-soluble drugs, but also pave a way for developing novel kinds of functional polymeric composites.

Speech Title: Investigation of Torsion Behaviors of Carbon/Epoxy Shafts Which Manufactured From Composite Materials and Different Orientation Angles by Experimental and Finite Element Method
Abstract: The torsional stresses of hollow circular shafts manufactured from composite materials and with different orientation angles were researched in this study. For hollow circular composite shafts; carbon fiber were used as the fiber materials, while epoxy resin was used as the matrix material. 80mm, 200mm and 250mm long composite shafts of different inner diameters were used. The hollow circular composite shafts were manufactured at θ=45°, 60°, 75°, 80°, 88° orientation angles. Filament winding method was preferred when manufacturing the composite shafts. The mechanical torsion tests of hollow circular composite shafts were separately repeated for each sample. The obtained results were evaluated among themselves in terms of the length of the shafts, the diameter of the shafts and the orientation angle, after which they were transferred to the graphics. The obtained results of experimental and numerical analyses were presented in graphs and the necessary considerations were made. The experimental and numerical analysis results were found to be close to each other.

Speech Title: Polymer composite films with size-selected metal nanopartciles
Abstract: Polymer composite films with metal nanoparticles (NP) are of high interest for a number of applications. Recently, it has been demonstrated that cluster beam technique is an efficient method for embedment of NPs into polymer substrates. However, the mechanisms of cluster immersion into polymers are not well understood as well as electronic and optical properties of the embedded metal NPs require deeper study.
In the current work, silver and copper cluster are produced using the magnetron sputtering cluster apparatus. They are size-selected and deposited on poly(methyl methacrylate) and polystyrene films prepared by spin-coating. The experiments have shown that immersion of soft-landed NPs into polymers can be driven by thermal annealing. This technically simple treatment opens great capabilities for the formation of polymer films with either partly or fully embedded size-selected particles as well as formation of the composites with controlled filling factor of NPs. The developed methodologies are grounded by physical understanding of main mechanisms driving NP immersion. Optical properties of polymer composites with embedded metal NPs are studied and discussed in the paper.

Speech Title: Developing Analytical Solutions for Transverse, Matrix Stain Magnification and Fibre Strain Reduction, in Uniaxially Aligned Continuous Fibre Reinforced Composites Based on the Reuss Rule and the Principal of Constant Strain Energy
Abstract: Analytical solutions for matrix transverse strain magnification and fiber transverse strain reduction in uniaxially aligned continuous fibre reinforced composites are developed here for a Representative Volume Element (RVE), based on the principle of strain energy and the Reuss rule. The results obtained show respective matrix and fibre transverse strain magnification and reduction that increase with increasing volume fraction of the reinforcing fibre for both square and hexagonal fibre packing geometries. The square arrays register higher values of transverse strain magnification and reduction than hexagonal arrays. The values of transverse stress ratio between the fibre and matrix in the RVE central sub-region, and between the two and the RVE central sub-region composite are seen to vary with the volume fraction of reinforcing fibre. The results obtained here denote dependency of transverse strain magnification and reduction as well a stress ratio on the reinforcing fibre packing geometry and volume fraction.

Speech Title: Reducing melt viscosity of PP with phthalimide and fabricating long glass fiber reinforced PP
Abstract: Long glass fiber reinforced plastics are normally produced by melt impregnating and it requires the used resins have low melt viscosity. To reduce the melt viscosity of PP and fabricate long glass fiber reinforced PP (LGFR-PP), phthalimide (PTI) was investigated as a phase transition plasticizer of PP. PTI was incorporated to a maleimide modified PP compound on a twin screw Haake Rheometer at 230℃. The phase structures of the PP compound were analyzed with DSC and XRD and the effects of the added PTI on the MFR, impact strength, the heat distortion temperature (HDT) were investigated. The PP compound with high fluidity was used to produce LGFR-PP on melting impregnating device and the microstructure and properties of the composite were examined.
PTI could dissolve in maleimide modified PP melt at processing temperature and enhance the MFR of the melt remarkably at PTI content below 2 phr. But during cooling after molding, the dissolved PTI would precipitate and recrystallize in the PP matrix, therefore, improved the HDT and impact strength. At 1 phr N-PMI, 0.5 phr BMI and 1 phr PTI, the MFR of the modified PP compound could be as 3 times high as that of original PP, while the HDT increased 12 oC and the impact strength increased 20 %. The modified PP compound could be used to produce LGFR-PP by melt impregnating efficiently. SEM revealed that the dispersion of glass filaments became more even with the modified PP compound and PP resin could envelop almost all filaments. After injection molding, the LGFR-PP with 30 % of glass fiber exhibited a flexural modulus of 11 GPa, flexural strength of 180 MPa, impact strength of 240 J/m and HDT of 160 oC.

Speech Title: Biomedical nanocomposites used for prosthetic restorations
Abstract: In clinical practice, numerous restorations are replaced after the ceramic fracture due to the poor bonding between the metallic alloys and the ceramic layer. For this reason, in the last years, many scientists tried to find a solution for improving the bond strength between metal and dental ceramics in prosthetic restorations. In the present paper, we proposed to add nanocomposite oxynitride coatings as interlayers between the metallic alloys and the ceramic layer. The nanocoatings were deposited on the most common dental alloys (NiCr and CoCr) using the cathodic arc technique. The elemental composition, crystalline structure, mechanical properties, surface roughness, contact angle and corrosion resistance of the coatings were investigated. The bond strength of the metal–nanocomposite-ceramic system, with and without interlayers, was evaluated by using a three-point bending test. The nanocomposite oxynitride coatings deposited on both alloy substrates demonstrated an improvement of bond strength in comparison with the uncoated substrates. All of the coatings had a superior corrosion resistance in artificial saliva (pH =5) than that both uncoated alloys.
The results demonstrate that the application of nanocomposite coatings as interlayer between the metallic and ceramic layer represents an effective alternative to increase the service life of prosthetic restorations.

Speech Title: An all solid flexible energy conversion and storage film for SERS signal up-regulations.
Abstract: Energy conversion and storage flexible device has gained increasing research interest in materials sciences because it tackles with the important energy issue and potentially leads to simpler and more efficient life styles. However, there remains a challenge to systematically design an applicable device which highlights the unique merits of the flexible energy conversion and storage film. In order to address the challenge, we have designed and prepared an all solid flexible polymeric composite that simultaneous generate and store energy. The film was prepared using a piezoelectric PVDF-HFP as the matrices and chemically converted rGO as the fillers. In addition, to fully realize the special merits and application potential of the flexible energy conversion film, we have demonstrated a concept for using the converted and stored energy in a flexible piezoelectric-dielectric film to up-regulate SERS signals. The signal up-regulation is as high as 10 times and is realized by a startling simple polymeric substrate that is only the size of a pH testing paper (40×20×3 mm3).

Speech Title: Preparation and Characterization of Polymer Nanocomposites
Abstract: The polymer nanocomposites have been the exponentially growing field of research for developing the materials in last few decades. The remarkable improvement in the polymer nanocomposite is found when a small amount of nanosized particles are added to a polymer matrix. The addition of inorganic solid nanoparticles (typically in the form of fibres, flakes, spheres or fine particles) into polymer matrix increases their physical, structural and mechanical properties. Since the polymer–nanocomposites have been the staple of modern polymer industry, their durability under various environmental conditions and degradability after their service life are also essential fields of research. This leads to focus on preparation & characterization of polymer nanocomposite. This article is intended to review the status of worldwide research in this aspect. The successful application of nanoparticles depends upon both the correct preparation techniques followed by testing through characterization. Surface modification can improve the inherent characteristics of the nanoparticles and serve to prepare nanocomposites inexistent in nature. Therefore, some tools as their various properties like electrical, optical and morphological can be used to optimize the preparation of polymer nanocomposites. This chapter will make an overview about different routes to prepare polymer-based nanocomposites by extrusion, synthesis of nanoparticles by sol-gel reactions, sputtering and mainly by physical evaporation deposition method.

Speech Title: Functionalization of medical implants by biocomposite based hydroxyapatite coatings
Abstract: For enhancing the osseointegration of the metallic implants, the bioactive coatings were frequently used. The hydroxyapatite is one of the most extensively used due to their remarkable osseointegration and bioactivity characteristics. Unfortunately, the hydroxyapatite has low mechanical strength which restricts its use as biomaterial. The goal of this study was to show that the mechanical characteristics of hydroxyapatite could be enhanced by addition of small amount of different elements (Ti, Si, Mg) in its structure, without loss the bioactive compatibilities. All the coatings were prepared by RF magnetron sputtering. The pure HAP coatings were obtained by sputtering of pure HAP target in an Ar atmosphere, at 700 °C substrate temperature. The nanoindentation results show that presence of small amount of all elements has a positive effect on mechanical properties of hydroxyapatite. Also, it was found that the resistance to the SBF attack and biological characteristics of hydroxyapatite were improved by addition of those elements to its structure.

Speech Title: Study Moisture Absorption of Starch Based Biocomposites Reinforced With Water Hyacinth Fibers
Abstract: Bioplastic based on starch was very sensitive on moisture, meanwhile this substance may be used to replace synthetic plastic. In order to increase moisture resistance, the biopolymer was mixed with natural fibers of water hyacinth plants. Volume fraction of water hyacinth fibers (WHF) in matrix of tapioca starch (TSB) was varied of 1%, 3%, 5%, and 10% respectively. The samples were placed in closed room with high relative humidity (RH) of 99% at 250C. The result showed that moisture absorption was decreased as increasing volume fraction of the WHF in TSB matrix. However, the studied composite samples cannot keep an equilibrium of moisture content as different duration in the moist chamber.

Assoc. Prof. Xiangdong Bi, Charleston Southern University - Integrating Faith in Learning, Leading and Serving, P.O. Box 118087, Charleston, South Carolina 29423, USA

Xiangdong Bi is currently a tenured associate professor at Charleston Southern University in Charleston, South Carolina, USA. He received his Ph.D. degree in organic/polymer chemistry from University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2001. After he pursued a postdoctoral fellow in medicinal chemistry for two years at Wayne State University, he started working at Michigan Nanotechnology Institute for Medicine and Biological Sciences (M-NIMBS) at University of Michigan in 2004. In 2007, he took the teaching position at Charleston Southern University which is an undergraduate teaching university. While teaching general and organic chemistry classes, he supervises numerous undergraduate students in chemical research. His research interest includes organic synthesis and bioconjugation of macromolecules for biomedical applications. Specifically, his focuses on poly(amidoamine) (PAMAM) dendrimer medicated drug delivery, cancer targeting and treatment, and fast crosslinking hydrogels for tissue engineering, bioprinting and other biofabrications. Since 2009, he has received multiple research grant from Department of Defense (DoD) and South Carolina EPSCoR.
Speech Title: Development of Polyamidoamine Dendrimer-Hyaluronic Acid In Situ-Forming Hydrogel Systems for Biomedical Applications
Abstract: Hydrogels are a class of three dimensional (3D) crosslinked polymeric structures capable of holding large amounts of water or biological fluids in their swollen state. They possess great potential in biomedical applications including tissue engineering, drug delivery, 3D bioprinting because they allow cell encapsulation and proliferation in a highly hydrated three-dimensional environment, and they provide biologically relevant chemical and physical signals. However, development of hydrogel systems that mimic the complexity of natural extracellular matrix (ECM) remains a challenge. In this research, a series of alkene functionalized polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers were synthesized to prepare in situ forming hydrogels with varied gelation time and mechanical properties through crosslinking with thiolated hyaluronic acid (HS-HA). By varying the alkenyl groups on the dendrimers, the gelation time displayed a large range from 8 seconds to 18 hours, and the modulus of the hydrogels ranged from 36 to 183 Pa under experimental conditions. Investigation by 1 H-NMR spectroscopy revealed that the gelation time and the stiffness of the hydrogels were governed by the degree of electron deficiency of alkenyl groups on the dendrimers. This research provided a systematic study on the relationship between chemical structures versus gelation time and mechanical properties of hydrogels, which could guide the way to synthesize in situ forming hydrogels with designated gelation time and stiffness for biomedical applications. Further, a RGD peptide was attached to the PAMAM dendrimers to enhance cell attachment and proliferation. Viability assays of Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells (HUVEC) in the synthesized hydrogels demonstrated the biocompatibility of the hydrogels after 48 hours of culturing, and the RGD peptide improved the viability of HUVEC cells in hydrogels. We believe the PAMAM/HA hydrogel system is a tuneable and biocompatible system for diverse biomedical applications.

Speech Title: Method of matricant, unified description of wave processes in media with the mutual transformation of elastic and electromagnetic fields
Abstract: Method of marticant allows to create a unified description of wave processes in mediums with mutual transformation of elastic and electromagnetic waves. Classic models of media established the structure matrix coefficients and structure matricant: normalized matrix of fundamental solutions. In the case of periodic structures the author obtained generalizations of the results of the work of Brillouin and Paradis, famous for discrete periodic structures. Also were constructed the matrix of boundary conditions and analytical solutions of reflection problems and refraction at the boundary of anisotropic media with different physical and mechanical properties. In this paper were identified the laws of refraction at the boundaries of anisotropic media, generalized Snell's law for an isotropic case. The author developed a unified description of surface Lamb-type waves in anisotropic elastic, dielectric, piezoelectric, piezomagnetic media and in media with magnetoelectric effect, obtained the limit speed of elastic and electromagnetic waves in thin layers (plates).
Method of marticant allows to establish that for two-dimensional inhomogeneous locally isotropic media appropriate model is a homogeneous anisotropic medium of orthorhombic symmetry. Meanwhile, the average parameters of media are defined clearly. These results are important for problems of Geophysics, Mechanics of Composite Materials, Tomography.

Speech Title: Study on the polyvinyl alcohol formulations for low temperature 3D printing bioceramics artificial bone scaffolds
Abstract: A key requirement for three dimensional (3D) printing in room temperature of medical implants is the availability of printable and biocompatible binder-powder systems. Many studies have regarded acid solutions as binder, which preclude the incorporation of growth factors into the scaffolds. Considering that the incorporation of growth factors into the scaffolds to stimulate bone regeneration in future bone implant surgeries, this study explored neutral polyvinyl alcohol solution concentration formulations. Compared with the other acid solution binder making bone scaffolds, polyvinyl alcohol binder solution scaffolds had better mechanical properties. Though both scaffolds support well the cell proliferation, the absorbance of the polyvinyl alcohol scaffolds was higher than other acid binder scaffolds. The artificial stents with a HA /β-TCP weight ratios of 60:40 possessed good biocompatibilities for both scaffolds. Given the incorporation of growth factors into the scaffolds, the polyvinyl alcohol scaffold with a HA /β-TCP weight ratios of 60:40 may be a suitable for bone tissue engineering.
Keywords: Three dimensional printing; Scaffolds; Polyvinyl alcohol; Binder-powder formulathion.

Speech Title: Friction Forces in Cellulose Fibers
Abstract: Friction is an important parameter for quality control of papers surfaces. It influences the movement of paper in industrial machines, printers, and prevents sliding of paper sheets in shipping. Their origins in paper are still obscure and difficult to understand once cellulosic structures with sizes ranging from micro- to nanoscale may have different contributions to the friction forces. Micron sized fibers, randomly oriented in paper surfaces may contribute to friction via fiber interlocking, while cellulosic structures may contribute to friction via intermolecular interactions. To better understand the contribution of friction forces of intermolecular nature and of mechanical locking we have measured the friction forces in cellulose fibers using a friction force microscope. Our results shows that the friction between the microscope tip and cellulose fibers and fibrils can be attributed to intermolecular interaction observed at point contacts on-top of macro- and microfibrils, and mechanical tip tripping at extended contact at the lateral of the cellulose fibers. The friction forces at the top of the cellulose fibrils were observed to be much smaller than friction due to tripping at the lateral of the fibers. The latter is comparable to friction forces measured in macroscale and interfiber experiments suggesting that tripping and fiber interlocking is one of the main physical mechanisms responsible for the friction forces during the relative motion of paper sheets.
