Oral delivery is the most attractive drug administration route due to many specific advantages. Ease of administration, large and diverse absorption surface area, applicability for solid formulations, patients’ compliance, and intensified immune response due to mucosal effects are usually...
pH-Indicating Colorimetric Hydrogel for Wound Dressing and Medical Grade Silicone Adhesive for Skin Electronics: Towards Multifunctional Bionic Skin PatchDownload
The physiological milieu of the normal skin is slightly acidic with a pH value ranged between 4 and 6; for chronic or infected wounds with a higher bacterial load, its pH value is above 7.3. Motivated by the fact that monitoring the pH value is an effective way to monitor the status of the wound,...
The addition of coarse particles to a flocculating fine particle slurry increases the Bingham yield stress of the resulting mixture, which can drastically alter the laminar-to-turbulent transition velocity. The objective of this study is to quantify the effect of coarse particle size and volume...
The transport of thickened tailings through pipelines in the mineral processing industry is challenging partly because knowledge of the yield stress of these complex non-Newtonian mixtures is required for design and optimal operation. Unfortunately, the yield stress of these mixtures cannot be...
Water-mediated adhesion of oil sands on solid surfaces at low temperature and possible solutions to mitigate adhesionDownload
Adhesion of frozen granular materials on solid surfaces creates various problems for surface cleaning, reduces the carrying capacity of vehicles, and increases energy consumption for inland transportation. Here in the first part of this thesis, water content demonstrates to determine the adhesion...
Water-Dispersible Magnetic Particle-Graphene Oxide Composites: Synthesis, Characterization and Application in the Removal of Selenium OxyanionsDownload
Selenium is toxic in excess with a high mobility in water. Existing adsorbents only show some removal capacity for selenite but perform poorly (typical removal percentage < 50 %) for selenate, the more bioavailable and soluble species. In this thesis, two Magnetic particle-Graphene Oxide...
Natural fiber reinforced polyethylene biocomposites are an environmentally friendly alternative to non-biodegradable thermoplastic materials. The addition of natural fibers to polyethylene improves mechanical properties such as tensile modulus and tensile strength. Unlike thermoplastics,...
The efficiency of gravity based separation and froth flotation techniques on vitrinite macerals upgrading and ash removal for two bituminous coals (Fording River and Coal Mountain Operation) has been investigated. Efficiency of these techniques for phosphorus removal for Fording River sample has...
