Is there a future for electrochemically assisted hemodialysis?: Focus on the application of polypyrrole-nanocellulose composites
2014 (English)In: Nanomedicine, ISSN 1743-5889, E-ISSN 1748-6963, Vol. 9, no 7, 1095-1110 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) Published
This work summarizes the various aspects of using electrochemically assisted solute removal techniques in hemodialysis with a focus on blood electrodialysis and electrochemically controlled uremic retention solute removal using polypyrrole. In particular, the feasibility of using highly porous conductive polypyrrole-Cladophora cellulose membranes for hemodialysis are overviewed as a part of our dedicated research efforts during the past 4 years. The potential benefits and the current limitations associated with using the electrochemically controlled uremic retention solute removal techniques are discussed in detail.
