Long chained polymers were evaluated for their impact on reducing pipe erosion during two-phase flow. The research study was compartmentalized into three categories. One of the components of this study investigated the erosion of different materials in an attempt to find a faster eroding...
Targeting a single pathway is not enough to treat cancer because of compensatory mechanisms against anticancer therapy via alternative molecular pathways for survival and proliferation of malignant cells. Given the unacceptable toxicity associated with conventional therapy, nucleic acids such as...
A novel nopoldiol-benzoxaborolate cross-link formed by a bioorthogonal click reaction between nopoldiol- and benzoxaborole-based components was developed for the preparation of biomaterials such as hydrogels and nanogels. In contrast to the traditional boronic ester-based cross-links, this...
Nanomechanical resonators are explored as mass sensors and molecular sensors due to their high sensitivity and real time label-free detection ability, respectively. One downside of mechanical molecular sensing is the lack of chemical information carried in the signal. For this reason, a...
Oilsands tailings are a waste product comprising primarily a stable alkaline suspension of clay in water. This waste product of oilsands mining is environmentally hazardous to store and expensive to safely dispose of. This work presents two novel ideas for dealing with the waste. The first is...
Dewatering of the oil sands mature fine tailings (MFT) is studied through pressure filtration following treatment by dual polymer flocculants. Polymer pairs consisting of anionic polyacrylamide (A3335) and cationic polyDADMAC (Alcomer 7115), and A3335 and non-ionic polyethylene oxide (PEO) are...
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...
Synthetic polymers are still widely used in today’s life despite all environmental issues attributed to them. Replacing synthetic polymers with natural biodegradable polymers has been considered as a way of reducing these environmental impacts partially, if not completely. Hydroxyporpyl xylan...
The infrastructure necessary to support diagnostic and pathogen-detection processes does not exist in some regions of the world that need it most. Access to fast, inexpensive and portable diagnostic infrastructure could be a solution to this problem. Next generation lab-on-chip (LOC) systems that...
A multi-purpose settling column was designed to determine settling rate and sediment height allowing the in-situ measurement of yield stress and drainage without disturbing the sediment particle network. The settling column was applied to studying flocculation/densification of model oil sands...
