  1. 1. Latex Colloid Dynamics in Complex Dispersions : Fluorescence Microscopy Applied to Coating Color Model Systems

    Author : Gunilla Carlsson; Jan van Stam; Maria da Graca Miguel; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; fluorescence microscopy; coating color; colloid; latex; diffusion; Brownian motion; film formation; polymer interaction; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; Kemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : Coating colors are applied to the base paper in order to maximize the performance of the end product. Coating colors are complex colloidal systems, mainly consisting of water, binders, and pigments. To understand the behavior of colloidal suspensions, an understanding of the interactions between its components is essential.. READ MORE

  2. 2. Transport of Radionuclides and Colloid Through Quartz Sand Columns

    Author : Birgit Christiansen-Sätmark; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : transport; radionuclides; Goethite column experiments; sorption; Quartz; colloid;

    Abstract : Studies of the transport of radionuclides in the geosphere are one of the main tasks for performance assessment of a nuclear waste repository. A possible enhanced transport path for the radionuclides is the formation and transport of non-depositing colloids with a high affinity for radionuclides. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Physical Chemistry of Kraft Lignin – Fundamentals and Applications

    Author : Magnus Norgren; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; sodium taurodeoxycholate; bile acid salts; stabilisa-tion; Hofmeister series; fractals; DLCA; RLCA; self-aggregation; colloid; self-diffusion coefficients; DLVO; Poisson-Boltzmann; pKa; dissociation; macromolecule; kraft cooking; lignin; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical chemistry; cryo-TEM; light scattering; 1H PFG NMR;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the physical chemistry of softwood kraft lignin in aqueous alkaline solutions. Both fundamental and applicational aspects are discussed. Kraft lignin originates either from pulp fibres or from black liquor produced by kraft cooking. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling anisotropic interactions in colloidal systems

    Author : Alexei Abrikossov; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : SIMULATION; Modelling; electrostatic interactions; Colloids; Statistical mechanics; SIMULATION; Modelling; electrostatic interactions; colloid; Statistical mechanics;

    Abstract : There has been an increased interest to design “smart materials” which can self-assemble into complex structures in accordance to external factors such as for example electromagnetic fields. By designing particles with directional interactions one is able to control how particles will interact with each other. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fate and transport of POPs in the aquatic environment : with focus on contaminated sediments

    Author : Sarah Josefsson; Karin Wiberg; Mats Tysklind; Kjell Leonardsson; Jonas S Gunnarsson; Jussi Kukkonen; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; bioturbation; bioirrigation; bioaccumulation; secondary sources; buried contaminants; sediment remediation; active capping; thin-layer capping; Marenzelleria spp.; Baltic Sea; polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins; polychlorinated dibenzofurans; polychlorinated biphenyls; hexachlorobenzene; octachloro¬styrene; polybrominated diphenyl ethers; PCDD Fs; PCBs; HCB; OCS; PBDEs; water sampling; passive sampling; particulate fraction; freely dissolved; apparently dissolved; colloid; organic carbon; activated carbon; lignin; sediment-to-water flux; spring bloom; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Persistent organic compounds; Persistenta organiska föreningar; Environmental Science; miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are hydrophobic substances that readily sorb to organic matter in particles and colloids instead of being freely dissolved in the water phase. This sorption affects the bio­availability and environmental transport of the POPs. READ MORE
