Synthesis and screening of heterogeneous multimetallic nanoparticle catalysts for mono-, poly- and heteroaromatic hydrogenation activity under mild conditionsDownload
Nanoparticle catalysts have shown to be advantageous over traditional catalysts for many reasons and active for a wide variety of reactions. This thesis describes an approach for the synthesis and screening of heterogeneous multimetallic nanoparticle catalysts for aromatic hydrogenation activity...
This thesis reports the separation behavior of SDS-protein complexes in colloidal self-assembled (CSA) nanoparticle beds, and the processes of stabilization of CSA beds for high voltage separation. First, the variation of electrophoretic mobility with molecular weight (6.5-66 kDa) of SDS-protein...
Fine sand and clay particles arise naturally in diverse industrial and environmental remediation contexts. Organic compounds for example from oil production or oil spills can adsorb on their surface and influence their oil water interfacial behaviors. To isolate the impact of contamination and...
Liposomes are versatile vesicles of a phospholipid bilayer, which offer great protection for active compounds. Encapsulated compounds can be protected from the unfavorable external conditions so that their chemical stability and bioavailability can be greatly enhanced. The supercritical carbon...
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...
A new aerosol particle classiﬁer, the Aerodynamic Aerosol Classifier (AAC), is presented with some of its applications. The instrument uses a centrifugal force and sheath flow between two concentric rotating cylinders to produce a monodisperse aerosol classified by aerodynamic diameter. Since...
The purpose of this project was to formulate, modify and evaluate nanoparticles for targeting asialoglycoprotein receptor found in large numbers exclusively on hepatocyte surfaces. Our goal is to increase the efficacy, reduce the side effects and the cost of the hydrophilic drugs administered to...
Experimental Testing of New Generation Chemicals and Conventional Surfactants as Additives to Steam InjectionDownload
With the decrease in nonrenewable energy sources, heavy oil and bitumen recovery gains more attention due to their huge potential. The recovery of heavy oil or bitumen requires viscosity reduction where steam is commonly injected to mobilize and displace viscous oil. This application, however,...
Dendritic cells (DCs) play a central role in shaping antigen-specific immune response. Antibody-mediated antigen targeting to DC-specific surface receptors is a promising approach to enhance vaccine efficacy. The objective of this thesis was to develop DC-targeted nanoparticulate formulations for...
Chicken feathers are byproduct of poultry industries and except some minor low end application, they are generally dumped into landfills. An effort has been made to utilize this by-product by transforming them into nano-reinforced bioplastics which is not only a solution to feather waste disposal...
