Investigation of Barley Proteins’ Interfacial Properties and Their Applications as Nanoscaled MaterialsDownload
The overall objective of this thesis research is to gain fundamental knowledge on the relationship between barley protein molecular structures and their interfacial properties as well as to develop barley protein value-added applications with special emphasis on their utilization as nanoparticles...
Cyclic steam stimulation (CSS) and steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) are the most commonly applied techniques used for heavy oil (HO) and bitumen (B) recovery. However, these methods, especially CSS, suffer from low recovery factor and production of highly viscous oil that requires...
The objective of this research was to explore the feasibility of using SPI nanoparticles to improve the absorption of vitamin B12 (VB12) using in-vitro and ex-vivo models. The molecular interactions between soy proteins and VB12 were firstly studied and the results revealed that VB12 was bound to...
Exploiting the Enhanced Permeability and Retention Effect for the Targeting of Tumors with 18F-SiFA Polymer NanoparticlesDownload
Over the last several decades great progress has been made in cancer diagnosis and detection. One foundation of this progress has been improved imaging technologies. Among the most promising imaging technologies for cancer detection is Positron Emission Tomography (PET). PET imaging allows for...
On the Atomistic Simulation Approach Towards the Structural Stability of the ZnS NanoparticlesDownload
Recently, ZnS quantum dots have attracted a lot of attention since they can be a suitable alternative for cadmium-based quantum dots, which are known to be highly carcinogenic for living systems. Suitable optoelectronic properties and non-toxic nature of ZnS quantum dots capacitate exiting...
The confined impinging jet reactor gives efficient mixing performance as required for fast reactions. In this work the mixing performance of CIJR is characterized through three measures: estimates of the energy dissipation, micromixing efficiency based on the yield of a homogeneous...
Bimetallicity is known to provide synergistic effects and improve catalytic performance of monometallic counterparts in a variety of applications. Conventional impregnation methods for supported catalyst preparation do not allow for the control of bimetallic nanoparticle structure or size, which...
The Influence of Specific Ions and System Architecture on the Recognition and Reactivity of Two Charged Materials: DNA-Modified Gold Nanoparticle Aggregates and Planar SilicaDownload
DNA functionalized gold nanoparticles (GNP–DNA) offer simple colorimetric nucleic acid sensing with high selectivity and sensitivity. Consequently, they are promising in genetic profiling, disease diagnostics, and forensic applications. In the presence of a target nucleic acid, GNP–DNA forms...
Characterization of Particulate Matter Morphology and Volatility for Two Direct-Injection EnginesDownload
Particulate matter emitted from two direct injection engines has been characterized by morphology, volatility, mass-mobility exponent, effective density, and size distribution using tandem measurements from a centrifugal particle mass analyzer (CPMA) and differential mobility analyzers (DMA). The...
Nanomechanical torque magnetometry is emerging as a highly-sensitive method for gauging magneto-statics and magnetic dynamics in mesoscopic and nano-scale magnetic materials. Advances in torque magnetometry are presented here, which were unattainable using previ- ous techniques. Silicon nitride...
