    Direct valorization of cocoa shell waste, a by-product of the chocolate industry, for the fabrication of low-cost biofilaments for 3D printing application at lower 3D printing temperatures compared to standard filaments and highly reproducible process is reported.

  2. Oil–Water Separation Using Superhydrophobic PET Membranes Fabricated Via Simple Dip-Coating Of PDMS–SiO2 Nanoparticles

    Sang Wook Han, Kwang-Dae Kim, Hyun Ook Seo, Il Hee Kim, Chan Seok Jeon, Jung Eun An, Ju Hwan Kim, Sunghyun Uhm and Young Dok Kim

    Version of Record online: 17 AUG 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/mame.201700218

    Superhydrophobically modified polyester (dip-PET) via the deposition of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)-coated SiO2 nanoparticles (P-SiO2) using a simple dip-coating method is reported. The equipment consisting of the dip-PET membrane for selective oil-capturing from the water–oil mixture is displayed and an automated prototype instrument for the hydrophobic dip-coating of the fabric samples is demonstrated.

    A stretchable and bendable, and electrically conductive polymer nanocomposite with segregated network and designed geometric structure, which is prepared by selective laser sintering, may have potential application in 3D printing of flexible circuit, wearable devices, implantable devices, electronic skin, and dielectric elastomer actuators, etc.

  5. Flexible Polysaccharide Hydrogel with pH-Regulated Recovery of Self-Healing and Mechanical Properties

    Fuyuan Ding, Xiaowen Shi, Si Wu, Xinghai Liu, Hongbing Deng, Yumin Du and Houbin Li

    A flexible biopolymeric hydrogel with recoverable self-healing and mechanical properties is developed. The hydrogel crosslinked by Schiff base linkage contains two polysaccharides of acrylamide-modified chitosan and oxidized alginate. Circular recovery of self-healing and mechanical properties can be realized by adjusting the pHs.
