BSU scientist’s paper published by International Journal of Biological Macromolecules
A scientific article entitled “Electrospun nanofibers based on carboxymethyl cellulose/polyvinyl alcohol as a potential antimicrobial wound dressing” by Professor Khudaverdi Ganbarov, Head of The Research Laboratory of Microbiology and Virology of the Center of Excellence for Research, Development and Innovation of Baku State University (BSU) was published by International Journal of Biological Macromolecules. Impact Factor is 6.953, Q1.
In this work, citric acid-based quantum dots (CA-QDs) as a novel and safe crosslinked agent was applied in different feeding ratios (5–15 wt%) to synthesize carboxymethyl cellulose/polyvinyl alcohol (CMC/PVA) nanofibers (NFs) for the first time. Colistin (CL) as an antibacterial agent was also loaded (2 w/w%) during the synthesizing process of CMC/PVA electrospun NFs to trigger antimicrobial properties.
