Abstract null null Arthropod cuticles are extraordinarily stiff and strong due to phenol-amine chemistry and mineral reinforcement. Nevertheless, these cuticles require costly dopamine (phenol provider), acid-unstable minerals, enzymes that can be deactivated, making them difficult to imitate in artificial materials. Herein, the arthropod cuticle was mimicked by introducing a low-cost phenolic polymer (DP) and acid-stable montmorillonite into an amino-rich soy protein matrix (SPI) to develop a b...

Abstract Plant-derived protein adhesives have received widespread attention as sustainable alternatives to formaldehyde-based engineered wood products, but their practical applications are severely limited by the poor mechanical and antibacterial properties. Inspired by the amphiphilic and ionic features of mussel chemistry, we have developed a facile and green strategy for fabricating a soybean meal-based biomass adhesive with high bonding strength and antibacterial activity. The strategy incor...

Abstract null null A polyacrylate-based wetting agent, BYK-358N, was used to improve the interfacial bonding between the bamboo fibers and epoxy matrix. Fourier transform infrared spectrometer and differential scanning calorimetry were used to study the curing process of epoxy resin. The wettability of the treated bamboo fiber, which by the untreated and wetting agent treated epoxy, was studied using the surface tension of epoxy and bamboo fiber. The analysis of dynamic contact angle and interfa...

Abstract null null Petroleum-based plastics are useful but pose a great threat to the environment and human health. It is challenged for developing alternative materials to completely replace those plastics. In this work, soy protein (SPI) based films with excellent mechanical, biodegradable, and excellent UV-shielding were developed. The SPI-based films were crosslinked by ester bonds under microwave induction to form a strong chemical bond network, and by hyperbranched polyamide ester to form ...

Abstract The development of high-performance and sustainable bio-adhesive materials has attracted significant research attention in recent years. However, producing high-performance biopolymer materials with desirable mechanical and antibacterial properties remains a challenge. Herein, a mussel-mimetic strategy is reported to fabricate a soy protein (SP)-based composite film via aqueous co-assembly of 3-aminophenylboronic acid-functionalized cellulose nanofibril (AB@CNF) and hyperbranched polyes...

Abstract null null In this study, an effective and green adsorbent was prepared by the self- activation of kenaf fiber and then the kenaf-based activated carbon (KAC) was applied for the removal of lead Pb(II), copper Cu(II), and Congo red (CR) dye from an aqueous solution by the process of adsorption. The surface morphology of mesoporous adsorbent was characterized. The KAC showed good capacity of adsorption of as Pb(II), Cu(II), and anionic dye CR in very short period of agitation. The adsorbe...

Soy protein isolate (SPI) is envisioned as a promising alternative to fabricate "green" flexible electronics, showing great potential in the field of flexible wearable electronics. However, it is challenging to simultaneously achieve conductive film-based human motion-monitoring strain sensors with reliable fatigue resistance, robust mechanical property, environmental degradability, and sensing capability of human motions. Herein, we prepared a series of SPI-based nanocomposite films by embeddin...
