A LOCAL COMPOSITION MODEL FOR LIQUID MIXTURE SHEAR VISCOSITY
A predictive local composition model for multicomponent liquid mixture shear viscosity has been developed based on the Eyring and NRTL local composition models. Only binary equilibrium thermodynamic information is used in ...
Density Functional Theory Study of Microstructure and Phase Behavior of Stimuli-Responsive Polymer Brushes
Stimuli-responsive polymer materials can change their structure and physical properties drastically on external signals like a change in temperature, solvent properties (pH, ionic strength), the magnetic or electrical field ...
Thermodynamic stability and phase behavior of asphaltenes in oil and of other highly asymmetric mixtures
Asphaltenes are the polydisperse fraction of heavy organics from petroleum whose phase behavior is important in petroleum production and processing because of its potential to precipitate and plug tubulars. The molecular ...
GROWTH DYNAMICS AND CARBON-SUBSTRATE OXIDATION AND INCORPORATION PATTERNS OF METHYLOMONAS L3 (METHYLOTROPHS, CARBON METABOLISMS, DYNAMIC BEHAVIOR, GROWTH MODEL, MIXED-SUBSTRATE CULTURES)
The Ribulose Monophosphate-type (RuMP), obligate methanol-utilizing bacterium Methylomonas L3 has been used in the study of methylotrophic metabolism and fermentation dynamics. The dynamic behavior of M. L3 in continuous ...
Shear stress effects on cultured hybridoma cells in a rotational couette viscometer
Cells growing in stirred bioreactors exist in a complex fluid mechanical environment. A number of forces act on the cells in the reactor, including fluid shear stresses. If agitation is sufficiently rapid, these forces may ...
Solubilization-emulsification processes in nonionic surfactant-water-liquid triglyceride systems
Liquid triglycerides, the major component of cooking oils, have been found difficult to remove from synthetic fabrics during washing. The relatively strong adhesion force between triglycerides and fabric and their high ...
