    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

  2. 2. 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; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Vangueria infausta; drying; maltodextrin; sucrose; softener; toughness; solar-assisted pervaporation; aroma; crystallization; water activity;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English In Mozambique, many wild fruit species occur naturally in forest environments. Most of the wild fruits are consumed fresh because of their short shelf-life when ripe. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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 : The skin is our largest organ and its main function is to protect us from uptake of foreign chemicals and from desiccation. The barrier function of the skin is mainly assured by its outermost layer, the stratum corneum (SC). READ MORE

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

    University dissertation from Chemical Engineering, Lund University

    Author : Henrik Weineisen; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [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

  5. 5. Organic electronics for precise delivery of neurotransmitters

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Amanda Jonsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Organic electronic materials, that is, carbon-based compounds that conduct electricity, have emerged as candidates for improving the interface between conventional electronics and biological systems. The softness of these materials matches the elasticity of biological tissue better than conventional electronic conductors, allowing better contact to tissue, and the mixed ionic-electronic conductivity can improve the signal transduction between electronic devices and electrically excitable cells.
