Obtaining pectin nanofibers applied to the modify release of hydroxychloroquine

Abstract

The understanding of the self-aggregation process as well as the dynamics of colloidal particles in interfaces are important in several biological, industrial and technological processes. In this way, the use of electric fields is strategically important in obtaining materials highly organized and oriented, which can be used in several technological sectors, especially those materials that present high interfacial area, since they can be used as vehicles for controlled release of active molecules in a more selective and efficient way.This project has the aim of developing a research group at the UFSCar campus Araras, where the applicant was recently hired as a Professor, focused on the understanding of surface phenomena and to obtain self-organized structures due to the application of electric fields, namely, obtaining pectin nanofibers by electrospinning to be used as carriers of the hydroxychloroquine. It is proposed the use of electron microscopy and atomic force, thermal measurements, as well as chemical composition characterization techniques (such as infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction) for the analysis of new biomaterials. The results should contribute to understanding interfacial phenomena of self-organizing systems as well as obtaining micro and nanostructured materials by applying electric fields. (AU)
