  1. 1. Amphiphilic Molecules in Aqueous Solution

    Author : Gerd Persson; Göran Lindblom; Håkan Edlund; Björn Lindman; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; liquid crystal; phase diagrams; counterions; alkylpyridinium octanesulfonates; 1-monooleoyl-rac-glycerol; n-octyl-β-D-glucoside; cubic phases; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to investigate amphiphilic molecules in aqueous solution. The work was divided into two parts. In the first part the effects of different counterions on phase behavior was investigated, while the second part concerns the 1-monooleoyl-rac-glycerol (MO)/n-octyl-β-D-glucoside (OG)/2H2O-system.

  2. 2. On Phase Behaviours in Lipid/Polymer/Solvent/Water Systems and their Application for Formation of Lipid/Polymer Composite Particles

    Author : Anna Imberg; Per Hansson; Krister Thuresson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; Biodegradable; CLSM; Composite Particles; Controlled Release; Cubic Phases; Drug Delivery; Flory-Huggins Theory; FT-PGSE-NMR; IPMS; Liquid Phase; Lipid Domains; Liquid Handler; Microspheres; Microstructure; Phase Behaviour; Phase Separation; Polymer Matrix; SAXS; Segregation; Sponge Phase; Swelling; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; fysikalisk och oorganisk farmaceutisk kemi; Physical and Inorganic Pharmaceutical Chemistry;

    Abstract : A new kind of lipid/polymer composite particle, consisting of a biodegradable polymer matrix with well-defined lipid domains, has been created. The lipid used is the water-swelling lipid monoolein (MO), which forms a reversed bicontinuous cubic diamond structure in aqueous solutions. READ MORE

  3. 3. PEG and lipids in solid dispersions and liquid crystals - structure and phase behaviour

    Author : Johan Unga; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bicontinuous sponge phase; polyethylene glycol; monoolein; bicontinuous cubic phase; lipids; differential scanning calorimetry; phytantriol; small angle X-ray diffraction; solid dispersions;

    Abstract : In this thesis, two different kinds of nano-structured systems have been studied; solid dispersion systems of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and liquid crystalline systems containing the polar lipids monoolein (MO) and phytantriol (PT). Solid dispersions of PEG were studied with addition of different substances, lipids or parabens. READ MORE

  4. 4. Simulation of Relaxation Processes in Fluorescence, EPR and NMR Spectroscopy

    Author : Pär Håkansson; Per-Olof Westlund; Yehudi K. Levine; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; EPR; NMR; Energy migration; bicontinuous cubic phase; Stochastic Liouville Equation; Brownian Dynamics; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : Relaxation models are developed using numerical solutions of the Stochastic Liouville Equation of motion. Simplified descriptions such as the stochastic master equation is described in the context of fluorescence depolarisation experiments. Redfield theory is used in order to describe NMR relaxation in bicontinuous phases. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lipid bilayers versus monolayers- Sponge phases and skin lipid domains

    Author : Katarina Ekelund; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; fatty acids; Langmuir-Blodgett films; AFM; domains; stratum corneum; bilayer curvature; lipids; glycerol monooleate; phase behaviour; sponge phase; L3 phase; Livsmedelsteknik; cholesterol; Food and drink technology;

    Abstract : The L3, or sponge, phase is a thermodynamically stable isotropic liquid consisting of a surfactant membrane in aqueous solution. A solvent induced L3 phase is shown in systems of solvent, monoolein and water. READ MORE
