Patent number: 9243350
Abstract: By forming a meta-type wholly aromatic polyamide fiber using a highly hydrophobic UV absorber and having specific physical properties, a meta-type wholly aromatic polyamide fiber having light resistance, which can be dyed in various hues by carrier dyeing and in which the shedding of a light stabilizer during dyeing can be suppressed, is provided. That is, the meta-type wholly aromatic polyamide fiber contains a UV absorber with a water solubility of less than 0.04 mg/L and has a degree of dye exhaustion of 90% or more in the form of a dyed fiber and a light resistance retention of 80% or more after carrier dyeing.

Patent number: 9242024
Abstract: The present invention provides a three-dimensional nanofibrous scaffold for tissue regeneration, which is increased in porosity and thickness to enlarge the surface area thereof, thereby enabling cell adhesion at a high density, and a method for fabricating the same. The method for fabricating a three-dimensional nanofibrous scaffold for tissue regeneration includes the steps of: (a) preparing a polymer solution; (b) preparing a nanofiber matrix, in which a plurality of nanofibers is entangled with each other, from the polymer solution prepared in step (a) using electrospinning; and (c) immersing the prepared nanofiber matrix in a solution and subjecting the solution to ultrasonication, thereby increasing the thickness and porosity of the nanofiber matrix.
