Linseed oil miniemulsions stabilized by polyelectrolyte complex (gum arabic-chitosan)

, , ,
An linseed oil miniemulsion was optimized using the microfludization process and finally stabilized by polyelectrolyte complexes formation. Emulsion preparation variables such as gum arabic/oil mass ratio (GA/O), oil volume fraction (), homogenization pressure and number [...]

SRD-MD modelling of hydrodynamic interactions in colloidal systems: playing between computational cost and resolution

, , , , , , ,
A ubiquitous problem that has always been a subject of intensive research is the role played by hydrodynamic interactions (HI’s) in several fundamental problems in colloid rheology and aggregation kinetics. However, the high computational demand [...]

Preparation of ion group functionalized diblock copolymers and examination of their thermogelling properties

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
To investigate thermogelling behavior, in this study, methoxy polyethylene glycol-b-[poly(ε-caprolactone)-ran-poly(6-chloride-ε-caprolactone) (PCL-ran-PfCL)] (PCL-Cl) diblock copolymers were designed such that the PfCL content in the PCL segment was varied. The PCL-Cl diblock copolymers were derivatized by introducing [...]
