Atomic Layer Deposition of Metal Oxides for the Preparation of High Performance Zn-Air Battery ElectrodesDownload
As the world continues to implement renewable energy technologies such as wind and solar, comes the demand for grid scale energy storage. Zn-air batteries (ZABs) are a promising candidate for grid scale energy storage because of their high energy density, low cost, high safety, and low...
In this study, the influence of dual bubble generator on mineral flotation was investigated. A Venturi-based dual bubble generator was designed and characterized in both liquid-gas two-phase system and solid-liquid-gas three-phase flotation system. The dual bubble generator featured immediately...
The Mechanism of Floc Formation by Hydrodynamic Cavitation and Its Application on Fine Particle FlotationDownload
In recent decades, hydrodynamic cavitation has been used to enhance fine particle flotation recovery in mineral engineering. Such an increase was mainly attributed to the generation of flocs/aggregates of fine particles during the hydrodynamic cavitation process. However, the mechanism of floc...
(RADA)4 Self-Assembling Peptide based Hydrogels: Design, Characterization and In-Vitro Biological EvaluationDownload
Ionic self-assembling peptides have emerged as promising nano-biomaterials, with direct applications in the fields of bioengineering and applicative medicine. (RADA)4 is a self-assembling 16 residue containing peptide, with alternating hydrophobic and hydrophilic residues. This characteristic...
A Combined Computational and Experimental Investigation of Polynucleotide Binding Polymers for Therapeutic ApplicationsDownload
Polynucleotide binding polymers have a wide range of therapeutic applications including delivery systems for therapeutic polynucleotides, and antithrombotic drugs for extracellular nucleic acid-mediated thrombogenic events. This dissertation explores polynucleotide binding polymers in these two...
A Facile Synthesis and Application of Protein-Shelled Microbubbles as Temperature-Responsive Drug Carriers with the Aid of a Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-block-(acrylic acid) ShellDownload
In this study, a novel synthesis of proteinaceous microbubbles (MBs) was introduced in an effort to substantially lengthen the short lifetime of the sonochemically-synthesized microbubbles using surface-treated proteins. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) as a representative protein, was treated with...
Cellular automata consistently grow in relevance to engineering and science as computation becomes more important for design and theoretical analysis. Although cellular automata have been used for a variety of tasks a means of representing objects has not yet been devised. This is a severe...
It is not trivial to understand the underlying principle of polymer dynamics due to its wide range of applications in our daily lives. This thesis mainly focuses on the theory and simulation of polyethylene melts, which are not only restricted to the classic linear structure, but also extended to...
A Model Study on Water Soluble Polymeric Nanofibers for Rapid Flocculation and Enhanced Dewatering of Fine Oil Sands Tailings Simulated Through KaolinDownload
Nanofibers are fibers with diameters lower than 100 nm, traditionally made from natural or synthetic polymers. Properties of nanofibers, such as low density, controllable surface functionality, and high surface area to volume ratio, allowed researchers to use them in a multitude of applications...
Interfacial properties have a regulatory role in processes which involve the coexistence of different phases. Although such macro-scale properties are determined by the intrinsic nature of the interface-sharing phases, it is possible to alter them in favor of the process objectives. This,...
