    • Eco-friendly streamlined process for sporopollenin exine capsule extraction 

      Mundargi, Raghavendra C.; Potroz, Michael G.; Park, Jae Hyeon; Seo, Jeongeun; Tan, Ee-Lin; Lee, Jae Ho; Cho, Nam-Joon (2016)
      Sporopollenin exine capsules (SECs) extracted from Lycopodium clavatum spores are an attractive biomaterial possessing a highly robust structure suitable for microencapsulation strategies. Despite several decades of research ...
    • Extraction of cage-like sporopollenin exine capsules from dandelion pollen grains 

      Fan, Tengfei; Park, Jae Hyeon; Pham, Quynh Anh; Tan, Ee-Lin; Mundargi, Raghavendra. C.; Potroz, Michael G.; Jung, Haram; Cho, Nam-Joon (2018)
      Pollen-based microcapsules such as hollow sporopollenin exine capsules (SECs) have emerged as excellent drug delivery and microencapsulation vehicles. To date, SECs have been extracted primarily from a wide range of natural ...
    • Extraction of plant-based capsules for microencapsulation applications 

      Potroz, Michael G.; Mundargi, Raghavendra C.; Park, Jae Hyeon; Tan, Ee-Lin; Cho, Nam-joon (2016)
      Microcapsules derived from plant-based spores or pollen provide a robust platform for a diverse range of microencapsulation applications. Sporopollenin exine capsules (SECs) are obtained when spores or pollen are processed ...
    • Human blood plasma catalyses the degradation of Lycopodium plant sporoderm microcapsules 

      Fan, Teng-Fei; Potroz, Michael G.; Tan, Ee-Lin; Park, Jae Hyeon; Miyako, Eijiro; Cho, Nam-Joon (2019)
      Plant sporoderm are among the most robust biomaterials in nature. We investigate the erosion of Lycopodium sporoderm microcapsules (SDMCs) triggered by human blood plasma. Dynamic image particle analysis (DIPA), field ...
    • Natural products for the treatment of trachoma and chlamydia trachomatis 

      Potroz, Michael G.; Cho, Nam-Joon (2015)
      The neglected tropical disease (NTD) trachoma is currently the leading cause of eye disease in the world, and the pathogenic bacteria causing this condition, Chlamydia trachomatis, is also the most common sexually transmitted ...
    • Species-specific biodegradation of sporopollenin-based microcapsules 

      Fan, Teng-Fei; Potroz, Michael G.; Tan, Ee-Lin; Mohammed Shahrudin Ibrahim; Miyako, Eijiro; Cho, Nam-Joon (2019)
      Sporoderms, the outer layers of plant spores and pollen grains, are some of the most robust biomaterials in nature. In order to evaluate the potential of sporoderms in biomedical applications, we studied the biodegradation ...
