An Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopic Diagnostic Device for Characterization of Liquid-Liquid Systems and Phase Separation Detection in EmulsionsDownload
Rapid characterization of complex fluids, especially sensing emulsion stability, is crucial for many industrial applications, ranging from pharmaceutical industry to petroleum production. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) is a powerful tool for electrical characterization of such...
An Item Analysis of the Instability of Parent Report Scores on the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability InventoryDownload
Purpose: To evaluate item instability of the Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory – Functional Skills Scale completed by parents. Methods: Scoring instability was analyzed between baseline and after 6 months of intervention (T1-T2) on 113 children and between end of intervention and 3...
Atomistic Simulations for Investigating Structural Stability and Selecting Initial Adsorption Orientation of Lysozyme and Apo-α-Lactalbumin at Hydrophobic and Hydrophilic SurfacesDownload
Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were performed to investigate the structural stability of lysozyme and apo-α-lactalbumin under physiological pH and solution. Upon introduction to the solution, apo-α-lactalbumin showed lower stability than lysozyme with higher backbone root mean square...
Characterization of magnetic nanoparticles as contrast agents and their application for quantitative magnetic susceptibility monitoring of the waterflooding of heavy oil in real timeDownload
Waterflooding is one enhanced oil recovery process used in heavy oil reservoirs such as at Cold Lake in North-Eastern Alberta. However, little has been published in terms of imaging heavy oil waterfloods, mainly due to the similar densities of water and heavy oil, which makes it difficult to...
Stability charts are presented to facilitate the computation of the factor of safety of earth slopes during rapid drawdown. As the reservoir level is lowered, the factor of safety decreases if it be assumed that no dissipation of pore pressure occurs during drawdown. Pore pressures during...
Development of Poly(ethylene oxide)-block-poly(ε-caprolactone) based Micelles for Tumor Targeted Drug and siRNA DeliveryDownload
The use of nanotechnology has made significant advancements in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Polymeric micelles are a relatively new generation of nanocarriers mostly intended for the delivery of hydrophobic drugs. In this thesis, our objective was to develop an optimized polymeric micellar...
The emission of propagating MHD waves from the boundaries of flow channels that are unstable to the Kelvin-Helmholtz Instability (KHI) in magnetized plasma is investigated. The KHI and MHD wave emission are found to be two competing processes. It is shown that the fastest growing modes of the KHI...
The complexity of large industrial engineering systems such as chemical plants has continued to increase over the years. As a result, flexible control systems are required to handle variation in the operating conditions. In the classical approach, first the plant model should be linearized at the...
Identifying nonspecific ligand binding in electrospray ionization mass spectrometry using the reporter molecule methodDownload
The application of the reporter molecule (Mrep) method for identifying nonspecific complexes in the ES-MS analysis of protein-ligand and DNA-ligand interactions in vitro is described. To test the reliability of the method, it was applied to the ES-MS analysis of protein-carbohydrate complexes...
