The current study investigates the drag reduction (DR) using high molecular weight polymers such as commercial polyacrylamide, polysaccharides and thermo-responsive polymers. A Taylor-Couette (TC) setup was designed and fabricated to examine the abovementioned polymers for drag reduction, and to...
Acinetobacter baumannii remains a poorly understood, but very dangerous opportunistic pathogen. Though it lacks clear virulence traits expected of pathogens, it none the less poses a massive threat to the hospital system due to its inherent and acquired resistance to antibiotics, survival on...
Egg yolk contains approximately 10% (w/w) phospholipids (PL), of which about 70% is phosphatidylcholine (PC). Conventional methods of PL extraction from egg yolk involve using hazardous organic solvents. Supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2), as a "green" solvent, had been applied for the...
According to the traditional paradigm, carbohydrates are considered to be poorly immunogenic, T-cell independent antigens. Pure polysaccharides induce specific IgM responses, with minimal class switch to IgG. However, a series of recent investigations has found that a class of zwitterionic...
