    Abstract : Tactile perception is considered an important contributor to the overall consumer experience of a product. However, what physical properties that create the specifics of tactile perception, are still not completely understood. READ MORE

  3. 3. Utilization of Wild Fruit in Mozambique – Drying of Vangueria infausta (African medlar)

    University dissertation from Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition, Lund University

    Author : Eulália Chiau; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vangueria infausta; drying; maltodextrin; sucrose; softener; toughness; solar-assisted pervaporation; aroma; crystallization; water activity;

    Abstract : Vangueria infausta (African medlar) is a wild fruit found in southern and central Mozambique. The ripe fruit has a leathery skin enclosing three to five seeds embedded in a soft pulp that tastes like apple. It plays an important role in the diet of the rural population and has the potential for commercial use. READ MORE

  4. 4. Foreign molecules in biomembranes : Molecular effects on intact stratum corneum and model lipid systems

    University dissertation from Division of Physical Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Lund University

    Author : Quoc Dat Pham; [2016-08]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stratum corneum; lipid; keratin filament; protein; DMPC; penetration enhancer; osmolyte; solvent; monoterpene; fatty acid; hydration; molecular mobility; fluidity; permeability; PT ssNMR; diffusion cell;

    Abstract : This thesis mainly explores how the molecular mobility of lipid and protein components in the outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum (SC), varies with different conditions and upon adding foreign compounds. These studies require methods that makes it possible to detect and characterize the minor amount of fluid components in the highly ordered solid SC sample with resolved molecular information.

  5. 5. Through-Drying of Tissue Paper - Experiments and Modelling

    University dissertation from Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Henrik Weineisen; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; paper drying; modelling; TAD; through-drying; through-air drying; tissue; paper;

    Abstract : In through-drying of paper, the energy required for drying is supplied by hot air, which is forced through the paper structure. The area for heat and mass transfer is the internal surface area of the paper, which is often many times larger than the external web surface area (xy-plane). READ MORE
