Engineering Escherichia coli for the production of polyketide-based platform chemicals
The current chemical industry produces a diverse array of industrial chemicals from a handful of highly reduced byproducts (termed "platform chemicals") derived from oil refining. However, petroleum is a non-renewable ...
Model reduction techniques for the stochastic simulations of dilute polymer solutions
This study develops reduced order models for the stochastic simulations of dilute polymeric solutions in shear and extensional flows. Reduced order models are obtained by modal analysis and balanced truncation with Brownian ...
Safe formulations of polyethylene and polypropylene: Exploring non-estrogenic antioxidants
Estrogenic chemicals originating in plastics materials are known to play a causative role in many health problems we face such as cancer, infertility, precocious puberty, and obesity. They have been linked to diabetes, ...
Brownian dynamics simulations of single-wall carbon nanotube separation by type using dielectrophoresis
We theoretically investigate the separation of individualized metallic and semiconducting single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) in a dielectrophoretic (DEP) flow device. The SWNTs motion is simulated by a Brownian Dynamics ...
