  1. 1. Early Hydration of Portland Cement

    Author : Rikard Ylmén; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; SEM; freeze-drying; cement; calorimetry; nano-silica; carbonation; hydration; FTIR; infrared spectroscopy;

    Abstract : The production of cement is responsible forapproximately 7 % of the total CO2 emissions caused by man. To compensate for high energyconsumption and CO2 emission, thus making the utilization of concrete more sustainable,several strategies can be used. READ MORE

  2. 2. Portland Cement Clinker - Composition and Hydration

    University dissertation from Material Chemistry, P.O. Box 124, SE-221 00 Lund

    Author : Anna Emanuelson; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inorganic chemistry; mineralisation; hydration; polymorphism; substitutions; ferrite; aluminate; belite; alite; Portland cement clinker; phase analysis; Oorganisk kemi; Material technology; Materiallära; materialteknik;

    Abstract : The crystal structures of the main Portland cement clinker phases are reviewed and two anion centered models of Ca3SiO5 and Ca2SiO4 are presented. The effects of minor elements on the clinkering process, and on the qualitative and quantitative phase compositions of Portland cement clinker are discussed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Humectants and skin effects of hydration from molecule to man

    University dissertation from Malmö University

    Author : Cathrine Albèr; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; skin; stratum corneum; hydration; hyaluronan; glycerol; urea;

    Abstract : Humectants belong to a group of hydrophilic compounds frequently used in skin care products with the aim to diminish the clinical symptom of skin dryness. The biochemical and biophysical mechanisms by which humectants interact with the skin barrier are far from fully understood. READ MORE

  4. 4. Concentrated DNA-amphiphiles Structure, Hydration, and Dynamics

    University dissertation from Physical Chemistry 1, Lund University

    Author : Cecilia Leal; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; amphiphiles; DNA; Physical chemistry; diffusion NMR; solid-state NMR; electrostatics; dynamics; local order; Fysikalisk kemi; hydration;

    Abstract : The structure, hydration, and dynamics of concentrated DNA-amphiphile complexes were investigated by small-angle X-ray diffraction, sorption calorimetry, and nuclear magnetic resonance. A concentrated, electroneutral, DNA-amphiphile complex can be formed by mixing charge-stoichiometric solutions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effect of hydration on thermodynamic, rheological and structural properties of mucin

    University dissertation from Malmö University, Faculty of Health and Society

    Author : Yana Znamenskaya; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mucous gel; mucus; mucin; PGM; BSM; BSM chitosan multilayers; hydration; water sorption isotherm; relative humidity; water activity; bound water; enthalpy of hydration of biopolymer; glass transition; rheology; phase diagram; fiber-like structure; dumbbell-like structure; sorption calorimetry; DSC; QCM-D; SAXS; AFM;

    Abstract : Mucus, an adherent hydrated layer covering the epithelium, is found in all internal tracts of the body and plays an important role in animal and human life. One of the essential functions of mucus is protection of tissues against dehydration. READ MORE
