Abstract Injectable hydrogels are very advantageous in skin tissue-engineering, but generally suffer from several issues including infection, insufficient hair follicle regeneration, and scarring. In this paper, an injectable antibacterial hydrogel is designed for wound healing via integrating antibacterial Ag29 nanoclusters (NCs) and mangiferin (MF) molecules into the 3D network-structured chitosan (CH) hydrogel to eliminate bacterial infection and promote hair follicle/tissue regeneration. Thi...

Abstract Self-healing hydrogel systems usually suffer from poor mechanical performance stemmed from weaker and reversible non-covalent interactions or dynamic chemical bonds, which hamper their practical applications. This issue is addressed by adopting a double-crosslinking design involving both dynamic Schiff base bonds and non-dynamic photo-induced crosslinking. This leads to the formation of a special topological structure which simultaneously provide good self-healing capability and enhance...

Copper-containing antimicrobials are highly valuable in the field of medical disinfectants owing to their well-known high antimicrobial efficacy. Artificially synthesized nanozymes which can increase the level of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the bacterial system have become research hotspots. Herein, we describe the design and fabrication of degradable Cu-doped phosphate-based glass (Cu-PBG) nanozyme, which can achieve excellent antibacterial effects against Gram-positive and Gram-negative b...

Understanding the interaction of nanomaterials with biological systems has always been of high concern and interest. An emerging type of nanomaterials, ultrasmall metal nanoclusters (NCs, < 2 nm in size), are promising in this aspect due to their well-defined molecular formulae and structures, as well as unique physical and chemical properties that are distinctly different from their larger counterparts (metal nanoparticles). For example, metal NCs possess intrinsic strong luminescence, which ca...

Abstract Polyetheretherketone has been widely used for bone defect repair, whereas failures may happen due to implant loosening and infection. Thus, PEEK implant with multi-function (osteogenesis, angiogenesis, and bacteria-killing) is essential to solve this problem. Herein, copper oxide microspheres (渭CuO) decorated with silver nanoparticles (nAg) were constructed on porous PEEK surface via silk fibroin. In vitro studies highlighted the pH controlled release ability of this coating. It liberat...

Infections are the main reason most people die from burns and diabetic wounds. The clinical challenge for treating wound infections through traditional antibiotics has been growing steadily and has now reached a critical status requiring a paradigm shift for improved chronic wound care. The USA Centers for Disease Control have predicted more deaths from antimicrobial-resistant bacteria than all types of cancers combined by 2050. Thus, the development of new wound dressing materials that do not r...

Abstract In the present report, for the first time aqueous extract of Curcuma longa powder is used for the synthesis of Copper nanoparticels (Cu NPs) using a simple and cost effective method. Morphology, size, cystallinity, composition and microstcrutre of the synthesized Cu Nps are studied. Size of the particles are in the range of 5-20 nm. In addition to the above, antibacterial activity of the obtained Cu NPs is tested for both gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms. Zone of inhibitio...

Ultrasmall silver nanoclusters (Ag NCs) with rich surface chemistry and good biocompatibility are promising in antibacterial application, however, further development of Ag NCs for practical settings has been constrained by their relatively weak antibacterial activity. Using the nutritionally-rich medium for bacteria (e.g., Luria-Bertani (LB) medium) to coat active Ag NCs could further improve their antibacterial activity. Here, we provide a delicate design of a highly efficient Ag NCs@ELB antib...

Abstract Protein-templated gold nanoclusters have attracted attention in fluorescence imaging due to their simple synthesis and good biocompatibility. However, limitations still exist such as poor colloid stability and undesirable fluorescence intensity. Here we describe the self-assembly of keratin-templated gold nanoclusters via a simple and mild preparation process, including keratin-templated synthesis of gold nanoclusters (AuNCs@Keratin), silver ions modification of AuNCs@Keratin (AuNCs-Ag@...
