Smart pH response flexible sensor based on calcium Alginate Fibers incorporated with natural dye for wound healing monitoringCellulose, 2020Co-Authors: Li Cui, Wei Wang, Chao Yan, Yi GuoAbstract:
A kind of smart calcium Alginate Fiber having pH indicating properties was proposed to monitor wound healing. The smart calcium Alginate Fiber was prepared by dyeing the hydroxypropyl trimethyl ammonium chloride chitosan (HACC) modified calcium Alginate Fiber with alizarin dye and anthocyanin dye, respectively. It was worth noting that modification of calcium Alginate Fibers with HACC enhanced the dyeing and antibacterial properties, simultaneously. When the concentration of HACC was 10 g/L, the modified calcium Alginate Fiber had the best dyeing performance. At the same time, the dyeing process had no significant influence on the mechanical properties of the Fibers with the strength loss only around 0.2 cN/dtex. The smart calcium Alginate Fibers exhibited a rapid and significant color change and reversible color response at pH 2–11. Moreover, the color change could be easily observed by naked eye. Therefore, the prepared calcium Alginate Fibers could be a good candidate for intelligent wound dressings for visual monitoring of wound healing.

Calcium Alginate Fibers(CAF) were immersed into aluminum sulfate aqueous solution in order to improve salt resistance and dyeing properties of CAF.The optimum conditions for modification of CAF were as following: concentration of aluminum sulfate was 15wt%,reaction temperature was 45℃ and reaction time was 40min.Under these conditions,the breaking strength of modified calcium Alginate Fiber(MCAF) was 2.94cN/dtex which was 11% higher than that of CAF.The structure of both CAF and MCAF was characterized by FT-IR and XRD.During modification process,carboxyl groups react with hydroxyl groups involved in calcium Alginates Fibers’ macromolecular structure to form ester compounds.Meanwhile,aluminum ions in the solution exchange with sodium ions contained in calcium Alginate Fibers’ macromolecular structure to form a three dimensional network configuration with Alginate macromolecular which was different from the “egg-box” structure of the compound containing calcium ions and Alginate macromolecular.The results of XRD show that crystal structure of MCAF was changed and crystallinity of MCAF has increased with the comparision of unmodified calcium Alginate Fibers.However,crystallinity of MCAF slightly decreases with the increase of temperature and concentration of aluminum sulfate aqueous solution.The water absorbability of MCAF decreases compare with CAF,especially for solution A that was used to imitate the wound exudates.The water absorbability of CAF was 13.1 in solution A,but that of MCAF declines to 1.28.However,the water absorbability of MCAF was still much better than that of cotton Fibers.The K/S value of dyed MCAF was about 4.5,which was 37.5 times higher than that of dyed CAF.Moreover,the color fastness to washing of dyed MCAF was above grade 4.

Salt-free dyeing of PAMAM modified calcium Alginate Fiber is carried out with C.I.Direct Blue 15.Dyeing thermodynamics is studied,including dye uptake,the adsorption isotisotherm of the Fibers,dyeing affinity,heat and entropy.Compared with Alginate calcium Fibers,the dyeing behaviors of PAMAM modified calcium Alginate Fiber are much better,and the improving level is in direct proportion to the content of PAMAM in the Fiber.Adsorption isotisotherm for C.I.Direct Blue 15 on PAMAM modified calcium Alginate Fiber is a Nernst-type.The slope of adsorption isotisotherm and dyeing affinity increase along with the increase in dyeing temperature.Dyeing process is an exothermic reaction which increases the disorders of the dyeing system.Absolute value of dyeing heat and dyeing affinity increase with the increase in the content of PAMAM in the Fiber.
Textile Auxiliaries, 2011Co-Authors: Zhu PingAbstract:
Cu2+ modified calcium Alginate Fibers were prepared by soaking the calcium Alginate Fibers in copper sulfsulfate solution.The properties of the modified calcium Alginate Fiber were tested,such as infrared spectra,physical mechanical properties,salt resistance,hydroscopicity,antibacterial property,thermal decodecomposition property and the limiting oxygoxygen index(LOI).The breaking strength of modified calcium Alginate Fibers was 3.28 cN/dtex,which increased by 25% than unmodified calcium Alginate Fiber.The salt resistance of Cu2+ modified calcium Alginate Fibers was improved,and no gelatinization happened when the Fibers were soaked in common salt solution.However,damage still occurred and lead to the decrease of breaking strength of Fibers,hydroscopicity and flame resistance.While the antibacterial effects of modified Fibers to S.aureus and E.coli were distinct and durable.

Blending Alginate Fibers with polyester Fibers for flame-retardant filling materials: Thermal decomposition behaviors and fire performancePolymer Degradation and Stability, 2021Co-Authors: Qian-zhan Wang, Yan-yan Liu, Bin Wang, Yun Liu, Ping ZhuAbstract:
Abstract Polyester Fibers are often applied as filling materials; however, they are flammable and exhibit melt-dripping. In this work, to prepare Fibers with high flame retardancy, inherently flame-retardant Alginate Fibers were blended with polyester Fibers, without using any toxic chemicals. The blended Fibers with 20 wt.% Alginate Fibers achieved quick self-extinguishing without any melt-dripping in the vertical flame test and a test according to Pennsylvania Stuffed Toy Regulations. During the cone calorimetry test, the blended materials with 50 wt.% Alginate Fibers showed a remarkable decrease in heat and smoke release, compared with the blend with 20 wt.% Alginate Fiber and polyester Fibers. Moreover, the Alginate Fibers could decompose prematurely and then delay the weight loss of polyester components when the natural/synthetic blends were subjected to heating. Also, they exhibited flame-retardant activities both in the vapor phase by the fuel dilution of non-flammable gases and in the condensed phase by forming calcium-enriched residues that were incompatible with polyester melts. Given their ease of preparation and high flame retardancy, the blended Fibers have the potential for applications as filling materials of children’s toys, furniture, and clothing.
Characterization and functional assessment of Alginate Fibers prepared by metal-calcium ion complex coagulation bathCarbohydrate polymers, 2019Co-Authors: Qianqian Wang, Lin Zhang, Yan-yan Liu, Gangqiang Zhang, Ping ZhuAbstract:
Abstract In order to improve the mechanical properties of Alginate Fiber and enrich its application properties, the metal-Alginate Fibers were produced with wet spinning in the coagulation bath of Zn2+, Ba2+, Cu2+, Al3+ ions blended with Ca2+ ions. FT-IR and 13C NMR were used to characterize the binding mode of alginic acid with metal ions and the arrangement of G and M groups in the molecular chain. The flame retardancy, mechanical and antibacterial properties of metal-Alginate Fiber were improved, while its water absorption was decreased. The results of Thermogravimetric (TG) and Limiting oxygoxygen index (LOI) showed that the flame retardancy of metal-Alginate Fibers was better than that of calcium Alginate Fibers. The combination of metal ions and alginic acid has different improvement effect of mechanical strength and antimicrobial activity against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. The multi-functional Fiber is expected to be used in medical textiles and new textile Fibers.

Alginate Fiber with a breaking tenacity of up to 2.32 cN/dtex is prepared by spinning a sodium Alginate solution in a coagulating solution of CaCl2 aqueous solution followed by multi-roller drawing. Preparation parameters such as sodium Alginate concentration, coagulant concentration and coagulation temperature, which affect the Fiber tenacity, are investigated with an orthogonal test design, and the best spinning process is found with a coagulating 5% sodium Alginate solution in 4% CaCl2 at 40°C. The morphology, degree of crystallinity, thermal stability and the combustion performance of this Alginate Fiber are investigated by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), infrared (IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Thermo gravimetric Analysis (TGA) and Cone CaloCalorimeter. Using the centrifugal dewatering method, the absorption capacity of this Alginate Fiber is determined, and has a capacity of 13.01 grams of man-made blood per gram. The test results show that Fibers have an irregular cross-section without a thicker cortex and uniform longitudinal surface with grooves. The combustion property results demonstrate that the Fiber has a self-flameretarding property.

To improve the antibacterial property of Alginate Fiber, zinc Alginate Fiber was prepared by using Zn(2+) to replace Ca(2+) in coagulating bath, expecting to widen the application of Alginate Fiber in the medical dressings. The antibacterial properties and mechanism of zinc Alginate Fibers were investigated. The inhibitory rate was tested using the Petri-dish count method and 3-(4, 5-Dimethylthiazol-2- yl)-2, 5- diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) method by the way of shake-flash. The results show that calcium Alginate Fiber has weaker bacteriostasis, while zinc Alginate Fiber has obvious inhibitive effect. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) images show that the cell has ruptured and the surface of bacteria is scraggly after the interactions between bacteria and Fibers. The excellent antibacterial property of zinc Alginate Fiber demonstrates its potential application in wound treatments, especially in easily-infected wound.

Coloration of Calcium Alginate Fiber with Dye and Auxiliary Derived from Polyvinylamine (PVAm). I. Complex Dyeing with Polymeric Dyes Containing PVAmFibers and Polymers, 2021Co-Authors: Li Zhaoyi, Yanzhi Xia, Sun Liang, Fu Zhongjun, Li Yuchao, Jiang Zhaohui, Bingtao Tang, Wang Ming, Haofei HuangAbstract:
Calcium Alginate Fiber is a biomaterial with promising application in textile industry. However, the poor dyeing property of this Fiber restricts its development. In this study, three PVAm (polyvinylamine) dyes were applied to the exhaust dyeing of calcium Alginate Fiber and their dyeing behavior under different dyeing conditions was studied. The dyeing results revealed that PVAm dyes were firmly adsorbed on calcium Alginate Fiber by coordination bonding formed between the primary amino groups in PVAm backbones of dyes and Ca2+ ions in calcium Alginate Fiber. This special complex dyeing mode was further confirmed by a Langmuir-type adsorption manner of PVAm-1 dye for calcium Alginate Fiber. By the formation of this stable chelation structure between dyes and Fibers, high exhaustion rates (88.9–97.1 %) and excellent color fastness were obtained. SEM and XRD results also showed that the surface and crystal phase of dyed Fibers had very slight changes compared to those of original calcium Alginate Fibers. The strength property of the Fiber was also maintained well after this special complex dyeing process.
efficient suppression of flammability in flame retardant viscose Fiber through incorporating with Alginate FiberMaterials Letters, 2018Co-Authors: Xiansheng Zhang, Yanzhi Xia, Xiong Yan, Meiwu ShiAbstract:
Abstract The flame retardancy of flame retardant viscose (FRV) Fiber can be significantly further improved by simple blending with Alginate (A) Fiber, even though with the content of 10 wt%. Cone calocalorimeter results showed that longer time to igniignition (TTI), lower peak heat release rate (PHRR) and total heat release (THR) can be achieved in FRV after mixing with A. For example, the TTI of FRV can be raised from 10 s to 41 s after blended with only 10 wt% A. The mechanism of the effective suppression of flammability mentioned above was put forward by thermogravimetric analysis coupled with Fourier transform infrared analysis (TG-FTIR) and pyrolysis-gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (Py-GC–MS). It was found that the content of released CO2 for FRV/A was higher than that of pure FRV, and the content of the flammable gases for FRV/A, such as hydrocarbons, aldehydes, ethers and alcohols, was lower than that of FRV. In this way, the flame retardancy of FRV was effectively enhanced after blending with A.
Advanced Materials Research, 2013Co-Authors: Guang Xiu Tian, Fengyu Quan, Yanzhi XiaAbstract:
Experimental research on calcium Alginate Fibers thermal degradation and flame retardancy under catalysis of metallic salts was done by limiting oxygoxygen index (LOI), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and thermogravimetric analysis (TG) methods. LOI results show that with increasing calcium ions content, the flame retardant properties of the calcium Alginate Fibers improves further. The residues of calcium Alginate Fibers gradually retained Fiber shape and on the surface of the residues the holes reduced, with the calcium ion content increasing. TG indicates temperature at maximum rate of weight loss (T-max) was clearly shifted from 246 °C for alginic acid Fibers to 244°C, 236°C, 208°C, 205 °C and 203°C (SCa-1-1# calcium Alginate Fibers, SCa-2-2# calcium Alginate Fibers, SCa-3-3# calcium Alginate Fibers, SCa-4-4# calcium Alginate Fibers, SCa-5-5# calcium Alginate Fibers), respectively. The thermal degradation residues at 1000°C for different calcium Alginate Fibers are 13.7%, 16.1%, 17.2%, 18.2%, 18.4%, 19.2%, separately. Further discussion of the combustion process and flame retardant mechanism is presented.
