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...
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,...
The demand for a new solvent to treat oilsands was behind the purpose of this project; molecular dynamics simulation was used in this study. Supercritical water, supercritical carbon dioxide and other selected organic solvents in their supercritical state were studied. Meso-tetraphenyl porphyrin...
Carbon Dioxide Absorbers for Active Food Packaging: Heterogeneous Chemical Precipitation of Lime on TEMPO Oxidized Cellulose Nanofiber TemplateDownload
Cellulose nanofibers are fibers of high aspect ratios with exceptional barrier properties and are manufactured from renewable source. In this study, cellulose from various sources such as Kraft pulp and bleached chemical thermomechanical pulp (BCTMP) with different dispersion methods was used to...
Conversion of protein-rich biomass waste into value-added industrial products via chemical cross-linking reactions was explored. Two types of cross-linking reagents were investigated: dialdehydes and epoxy resins. Reaction chemistry was the main focus of this investigation and the main reaction...
In recent years, the application of self-associating block copolymer based drug delivery systems has attracted increasing attention as nano-sized carriers for the encapsulation and the controlled delivery of water insoluble drugs. Most of the drug formulations are based on the “trial and error”...
In recent years, the use of self-associating block copolymer based drug delivery systems have attracted increasing attention as nanoscopic carriers for the encapsulation and the controlled delivery of water insoluble drugs. Currently, most of the drug formulations proceed by “trial and error”...
Canadian plywood industry with its 2 billion square feet annual capacity  requires a large amount of adhesive materials to satisfy its needs. This forces plywood manufacturers to consider the utilization of agricultural bio-waste to create environmentally friendly adhesive materials with the...
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...
Molecular dynamics simulation and density functional theory were applied to calculate heats of immersion (ΔHimm) of n-heptane, toluene, pyridine and water on two model sand surfaces and two model clay surfaces. Our results indicated that water showed the highest ΔHimm for the model clay surfaces...
