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...
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...
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...
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,...
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...
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....
The use of nanoparticles as nutrient delivery vehicles enables the enhancement of the oral bioavailability and health promoting benefits of bioactive compounds. Barley protein nanoparticles were developed in previous study for hydrophobic compound delivery. The objective of the present study was...
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...
Synthetic oligodeoxynucleotides containing unmethylated CpG motifs (CpG ODNs) are powerful stimulators of innate and adaptive immune responses, exerting their activity through the interaction with endolysosomal Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) expressed by antigen presenting cells (APCs). The strong...
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...
