  1. 1. Nanotribology, Surface Interactions and Characterization An AFM Study

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rubén Álvarez-Asencio; Mark W. Rutland; Suzanne Giasson; [2014]

    Abstract : When two surfaces achieve contact, then contact phenomena such as adhesion, friction and wear can occur, which are of great interest in many disciplines, including physics, physical chemistry, material chemistry, and life and health sciences. These phenomena are largely determined by the nature and magnitude of the surface forces such as van der Waals, capillary and hydration forces. READ MORE

  2. 2. Interfacial and material aspects of powders with relevance to pharmaceutical tableting performance

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Maria Badal Tejedor; Mark W. Rutland; William Ducker; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; atomic force microscopy; excipients; surface characterization; tableting; milling; amorphisation; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Tablets are the most common forms of drug administration. They are convenient to administer and easy to manufacture. However, problems associated with the adhesion of the powders to the tableting tools are common. This phenomenon is known as sticking and even though it has been well documented and studied, it remains poorly understood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adsorption of molecular thin films on metal and metal oxide surfaces

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Zahra Besharat; Mats Göthelid; Mark Rutland; Magnus Johnson; W. Gregory Sawyer; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Self assembled monolayer SAM ; dye synthesis solar cell DSSC ; thiol; selenol; Cu2O 100 ; Cu2O 111 and dehydrogenation; Physics; Fysik; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Metal and metal oxides are widely used in industry, and to optimize their performance their surfaces are commonly functionalized by the formation of thin films. Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are deposited on metals or metal oxides either from solution or by gas deposition. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantitative in situ analysis of initial atmospheric corrosion of copper induced by carboxylic acids

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemi

    Author : Harveth Gil; Christofer Leygraf; Mark Rutland; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Atmospheric corrosion; carboxylic acids; copper; in situ; IRAS; QCM; coulometric reduction.; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi;

    Abstract : The interaction of carboxylic acids with copper is a phenomenon found both outdoors and, more commonly, indoors. The influence on copper of some carboxylic acids (formic, acetic, propionic, and butyric) have so far been studied at concentrations levels at least three or four orders of magnitude higher than actual indoor conditions (< 20 ppb, volume parts per billion), and with only limited emphasis on any mechanistic approach.

  5. 5. Synthesis, characterization and molecular architecture of electroactive and degradable polymers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Baolin Guo; Ann-Christine Albertsson; Anna Finne Wistrand; Ann Cornell; Mark Rutland; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Poly L; L-lactide ; poly ε-caprolactone ; ring-opening polymerization; carboxyl-capped aniline trimer; carboxyl-capped aniline pentamer; coupling reaction; DCC DMAP system; degradability; electroactivity; conductivity; macromolecular architecture; tissue engineering; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Polymer chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : The third-generation biomaterials are designed to stimulate specific cellular responses at the molecular level. Recent studies have shown that electrical signals regulate cellular activities including cell adhesion, migration, proliferation and differentiation. READ MORE
