Lipase-modified pH-responsive poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-based microgels were synthesized. An optical device was subsequently fabricated by sandwiching the enzyme loaded responsive microgels between two thin Au layers, and their response to triolein, a model triglyceride, was investigated. The...
Temperature and pH responsive semi-interpenetrating network (semi-IPN) hydrogel-based bilayer actuators were fabricated by generating a poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm)-based hydrogel in the presence of positively charged polyelectrolyte poly(diallyldimethylammonium chloride) (pDADMAC) on a...
There are many candidate technologies that could be applied to the treatment of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW). Advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) are particularly useful for degrading biologically toxic or non-degradable materials such as aromatics, pesticides, petroleum constituents,...
This is an abstract of a presentation made at the conference titled \"The Aerosol Society Drug Delivery to the Lungs 20,\" at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, Scotland, UK, December 9-11, 2009.
With the widespread use of nanoparticles (NPs) in commercial products, it is inevitable that NPs will be released into and accumulated in domestic and industrial waste streams (such as wastewater treatment systems), which might have unknown effects. To determine the effects of Ag NPs on the...
The nature and structure of asphaltene nanoaggregates are frequently the subject of debate and speculation in the literature. The continental asphaltene nano-aggregate model, characterized by the presence of alkyl chains on their surface, and the archipelago nano-aggregate model, characterized...
Germanium nanomaterials have many potential applications based on their size-tunable optical and electronic properties, for example in photodetectors, photovoltaics and non-volatile memory. In this work, the synthesis of Ge nanoparticles by two different methods based on tailorability through the...
Effects of Size and Coalescence on the Interfacial Dynamics of Nanoparticles: A Molecular Dynamics StudyDownload
Normally chemically inert materials such as Au have been found to be catalytically active in the form of particles whose size is about 1 nm. Direct and indirect observations of various types of metal nanoparticles (NPs) in this size range, under catalytically relevant conditions for fuel-cell...
Plant protein gel formation mechanisms and their applications as delivery systems of bioactive compoundsDownload
The objective of this research was to understand the gel formation mechanisms of plant proteins by both heat- and cold-induced methods, and use the knowledge gained to design plant protein gels with improved mechanical properties for food applications and as nutraceutical delivery systems. In the...
Extraction of canola proteins and assessment of their applications: cruciferin for encapsulation of bioactives and napin as a chaperone-like moleculeDownload
Canola is a farm-gate crop in Canada. Canola meal after oil extraction is used mostly as animal feed with limited value-added applications. Canola proteins are known to have great potential for use in food and non-food applications due to their nutritional, biological and functional properties....
