  1. 16. Self Assembly at the Liquid Air Interface

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Niga Petru; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; VSFS; SFG; interface; crown ethers; ethylene oxides; ionic liquids; fatty acids; domains.; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Physical chemistry Surface and colloid chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Fysikalisk kemi Yt- och kolloidkemi;

    Abstract : The aim of this work is to study the interfacial properties of amphiphilic compounds at the liquid–air interface in an attempt to develop a comprehensive understanding of their orientation as well as the influence of their interaction with the solvent on the interfacial layer properties. Using Vibrational Sum Frequency Spectroscopy (VSFS) as the main tool, the molecular structure of the amphiphilic layer and the amphiphile–solvent relation can be illuminated in great detail – it is arguably the most sensitive surface spectroscopy currently available.

  2. 17. ASPECTS OF FLUID THERAPY: An experimental study of the effects of systemic inflammation, microvascular permeability, blood pressure and plasma volume

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Maris Dubniks; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sepsis; activated protein C; SIRS; albumin; blood pressure; colloids; plasma volume; hypervolaemia; hypovolaemia; microcirculation; noradrenalin; permeability; prostacyclin;

    Abstract : Adequate circulating blood volume is a prerequisite for circulatory stability. Fluid therapy aims at correcting hypovolaemia, and is an important part of the haemodynamic management of perioperative and critically ill patients. READ MORE

  3. 18. Colloidal carrier substances : Properties and impact on trace metal distribution in natural waters

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Anna Ledin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1993]

    Abstract : Colloidal (<0,45 J.Im) and suspen~ed matter (>0,45 J.Im) are important constituents in the aquatic environment, due to their impact on the mobility and bioavailability of associated components (e.g. READ MORE

  4. 19. A Waterborne Colloidal Model System Consisting of Fluorinated Spheres Bearing Grafted PEG: Synthesis, Characterization and Properties

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Jeanette Ulama; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; colloidal model system; steric stabilization; core-shell; poly ethylene glycol PEG ; heptafluorobutyl methactylate HFBMA ; fluorinated; polymer; phase behavior; short-range attractions; semi-batch emulsion polymerization; small angle X-ray scattering SAXS ; smearing effects; dynamic light scattering DLS ; cryogenic-transmission electron microscopy cryo-TEM ;

    Abstract : Model systems have expanded our knowledge of numerous phenomena in Colloid Science, such as the appearance of glasses, order-disorder transitions involving crystals and attraction induced formation of gels. So far, the existing colloidal model systems have been limited mainly to nonaqueous media. READ MORE

  5. 20. On the Electrolyte Induced Aggregation of Concentrated Silica Dispersions - An Experimental Investigation Using the Electrospray Technique

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Ann-Catrin J. H. Johnsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Colloidal silica dispersion; aggregation; gelation; electrospray ES ; scanning mobility particle sizer SMPS ; synchrotron radiation small-angle x-ray scattering SR-SAXS ; electron microscopy EM ; dynamic light scattering DLS ; particle morphology; ion specificity; gel layer;

    Abstract : Gels are weak, solid-like structures that arise when colloidal particles aggregate to form a network of particle clusters. A variety of colloidal systems that are important scientifically as well as in industrial applications are capable of gel formation, e.g. globular protein solutions, colloid-polymer mixtures, and metal oxides.
