  1. 1. Interfacial Properties of Lipid Liquid Crystalline Nanoparticles

    Author : Pauline Vandoolaeghe; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; interaction; adsorption; surface; peptide; bilayer; cubic phase; monoolein; cubosome; lipid; liquid crystalline nanoparticles; ellipsometry; neutron reflectivity; QCM-D; SAXD;

    Abstract : Lipid liquid crystalline nanoparticles are studied for their potential as biocompatible carriers for pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic applications. Their potential as delivery vehicles is due to their nanometer size, their controllable structure and physical properties and their large carrying capacity of a wide range of molecules. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lipid-based liquid crystals as drug delivery vehicles for antimicrobial peptides

    Author : Lukas Boge; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; hexosome; antimicrobial peptide; cubosome; proteolysis; AMP; liquid crystalline nanoparticles; glycerol monooleate; Liquid crystals;

    Abstract : The development of antimicrobial resistance is a great challenge within the health sector around the world. The demand for new efficient treatments is alarming in order to treat various bacterial infections in the near future. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a group of novel antibiotics that have gain more and more attraction the past decade. READ MORE

    Abstract : The development of antimicrobial resistance is a great challenge within health sectors worldwide. Thus, demand for new, efficient treatments is urgent in order to treat various bacterial infections. Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are a group of antibiotics that have gained more and more attraction in the past decade. READ MORE

  4. 4. Self-Assembling Surfactant Aggregates for Synthesis of Nanomaterials

    Author : Martin Andersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : self-assembly; Ag; photocatalysis; nanoparticles; surfactants; liquid crystals; microemulsions; rutile; mesoporous materials; CaCO3; anatase; TiO2;

    Abstract : The main objective of this thesis was to study how surfactant assemblies can be used as templates to form inorganic nanomaterials. Both water-in-oil microemulsions and liquid crystalline phases have been used as structure directing agents. READ MORE

  5. 5. Phase Behavior and Solution Properties of Aqueous Polyion-Surfactant Ion Systems

    Author : John Janiak; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Polymer-surfactant association; complex salt; nonionic surfactant; poly acrylic acid ; poly methacrylic acid ; copolymer; polymeric counterion; decyl betainate; phase behavior; solubilization; mixed micelle; hydrolysis; release; liquid crystal; nanoparticles; thermosresponsive; C12E8; C12E5;

    Abstract : Polyelectrolytes and oppositely charged surfactants interact through attractive electrostatic forces, which in many cases lead to phase separation already at low total concentrations. During the past 10-15 years investigations of these systems have been simplified through the use of complex salts that consist of surfactants with polymeric counterions in a 1:1 charge stoichiometry (no excess simple counterions present).
