 ABSTRACT:  Silicon has the potential to revolutionize the energy storage capacities of lithium ion batteries, propelling their capabilities to meet the ever increasing power demands of next generation technologies. Silicon has a huge energy storage capacity (4200 mAh/g), ten times higher than the conventionally used graphite materials (372 mAh/g). To avoid the operational stability problems associated with the use of silicon-based anodes, the electrode structure needs to be architectured on the nanoscale.

ABSTRACT:  In this work we present results on the use of Gamma-Polyglutamic Acid (PGA) biopolymer to produce nanoparticles and encapsulate the anti-cancer drug Doxorubicin (DOX). Microbially produced PGA is used alone and in combination with Chitosan (CS) to form DOX-loaded nanoparticles at different conditions. The main mechanism of nanoparticle formation is the ionic complexation between PGA, DOX and CS.
