Synthesis, Characterization and Chromatographic Applications of Antimicrobial Cryogels

Antimikrobiyal Kriyojellerin Sentezi, Karakterizasyonu ve Kromatografik Uygulamaları


Antibacterial materials, in the last years, have become an important center of attention against diseases be- cause of pathogenic bacteria. Within the scope of this study, antimicrobial poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate- glycidyl methacrylate), poly(HEMA-GMA), cryogels were synthesized and Ag(I) ions were immobilized to the structure through the amino acid L-Arginine. For characterization of the structure; swelling test, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), surface area (BET), elemental analysis and ICP-OES methods were performed. The L-Arginine amino acid was used as an Ag (I) chelating ligand and the melittin protein adsorption capacity of cryogels was determined as 173.9 mg/g cryogel.
