  1. 21. Modeling of Hindered Diffusion in Gels

    Author : Jan Gutenwik; Institutionen för kemiteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; effective diffusion coefficient; pore size distribution; obstruction; immobilization; modeling; adsorption kinetics; hindered diffusion; simulation program; proteins; Chemical technology and engineering; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi;

    Abstract : Hindered diffusion occurs in the most different processes, as has been described in this thesis. It is very important to have an understanding of the influence of hindered diffusion on the mass transfer rate, especially when competing rate processes are acting simultaneously. READ MORE

  2. 22. Polymer Gels as Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms : Rheological Performance and Physicochemical Interactions at the Gel-Mucus Interface for Formulations Intended for Mucosal Drug Delivery

    Author : Helene Hägerström; Katarina Edsman; Arne Brodin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pharmaceutics; gel; rheology; mucoadhesion; mucosal drug delivery; in situ gel; gellan gum; Carbopol; tensile strength; nasal mucosa; intranasal administration; dielectric spectroscopy; Galenisk farmaci; Pharmaceutics; Galenisk farmaci;

    Abstract : Drug delivery to the nasal and ocular mucosa faces several obstacles. One of these is from the effective clearance mechanisms present in the nose and eye. Polymer gels with suitable rheological properties can facilitate the absorption of poorly absorbed drugs by increasing the contact time of the drug with the mucosa. READ MORE

  3. 23. Diffusion and Interaction in Gels and Solutions

    Author : Lennart Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The self-diffusion in polymer gels and solutions has been studied experimentally and by Brownian dynamics simulations. A new theory is presented concerning systems with purely repulsive interactions between the diffusants and the polymers. READ MORE

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; swelling; hydrogel; cellulose; wood; cellulose fibrils; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : One of the major challenges of today´s society is to find a sustainable way to create a living based on the resources on earth. It is a challenge that includes a transition from fossil-based materials to renewable/biodegradable raw materials and also the creation of an environmentally friendly circular material flow.
