Abstract

Nanocomposites have been broadly used in bioelectronic, biosensing, photocatalytic, and bioimaging. Moreover, its use in bioengineering field is emerging continuously. The present study reports first-time the synthesis of a novel bimetallic-semi-aromatic polyester hybrid nanocomposite. The obtained MnFe2O4-poly(tBGE-alt-PA) hybrid nanocomposite was physicochemically characterized. FTIR analysis confirmed the synthesis of hybrid nanocomposite. XRD data showed the crystal nature of hybrid nanocomposite due to MnFe2O4 nanoparticles (NPs). TGA study presented the thermostable nature of hybrid nanocomposite and DSC analysis exhibited the absence of chemical interactions between the copolymer and MnFe2O4 NPs in hybrid nanocomposite. Further, the net negative charge was measured on the surface of this almost spherical hybrid nanocomposite. Later, we observed the biocompatible and hemocompatible nature of nanocomposite and in future, it may open many novel avenues in various fields of biomedical science.
