      Halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) or carbon nanotubes (CNTs) can be incorporated within poly(lactic-coglycolic acid) (PLGA) nanofibers via a coaxial manner and the incorporation of HNTs or CNTs does not significantly change the morphology of the PLGA nanofibers, as presented on page 4825 by Xiangyang Shi and colleagues. Importantly, the incorporation of HNTs or CNTs within PLGA nanofibers significantly improves the mechanical properties of PLGA nanofibers, and the formed HNT- and CNT-doped PLGA nanofibers display good anticoagulant properties and negligible haemolytic effects to human red blood cells. These composite nanofibers may be used as artificial tissue/organ substitutes for tissue engineering applications

      A superabsorbent hydrogel composed of waste polystyrene, starch, and acrylic acid is prepared through emulsion polymerization, as presented by Hanafi Ismail, Maryam Irani, and Zulkifli Ahmad on page 4195. The hydrogel is characterized by SEM, FTIR spectroscopy, and TGA. The porosity of a hydrogel can affect its water absorbency and retention rate. Thus, one of the important properties to investigate is the hydrogel microstructure morphology. The image confirms that the prepared sample has a porous structure. These pores should provide regions for water penetration into the polymeric network and interaction sites for the hydrophilic groups of the polymer network and external stimuli.
