Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ocean biodiversity is astonishing and, equivalently, it is a remarkable resource of biomaterials and chemicals including biostructures, lipids, enzymes, pigments and polysaccharides. Thanks to the significant technological advances in biological assays, synthesis, detection and characterisation of biomimetic materials, as well as in the area of glycomics, an ever-increasing number of bioactive compounds is being isolated and discovered. These bioactive compounds, ranging from simple saccharides or peptides to complex biopolymers or drugs, have been extensively used for designing and developing a diverse range of functional and biologically responsive biomaterials for tissue regenerative therapy, with good cell interaction and minimal inflammatory responses. Polysaccharides with diverse glyosidic bonds, conformational structures and varied interactions between saccharides are of high value for the development of biomaterials with tailored desired features.

This Special Issue aims to cover recent research advances on marine-derived biomaterials and new approaches for the valorisation of marine biomass, focusing on the role of marine-derived saccharides and peptides in biological systems, the interactions between biomolecules and marine polysaccharide sequences, and the development of tailored, designed, smart, personalised biomaterials that can modulate cell regeneration and immune system responses.

In this work, a method for ultrasonic extraction of polysaccharides from Sargassum horneri using deep eutectic solvents was proposed. The studied deep eutectic solvents were composed of choline chloride, 1,2-propanediol and water. Based on the single-factor experiment results, four experimental factors were systematically evaluated, giving the optimal extraction conditions as follows: molar ratio of choline chloride to 1,2-propanediol of 1:2, water content of 30% (v/v), solid-liquid ratio of 1:30 (g/mL), and the extraction temperature of 70 °C. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction were utilized to investigate changes in the chemical characteristic of extracted polysaccharides. The results indicated that deep eutectic solvents had stronger protein and calcium carbonate removal ability than that of a conventional hot water extraction method. Moreover, in vitro antioxidant activity tests exhibited that the obtained polysaccharides had significant inhibition effects on DPPH and ABTS radicals. The proposed deep eutectic solvents assisted ultrasonic extraction protocol was considered to be a green, fast and effective protocol for extracting polysaccharides from Sargassum horneri.
