PROPOSAL: Amphiphilic Particles Because of the reduced budget, I will not be able to prepare amphiphilic particles from a large number of pairs of hydrophobic and hydrophilic monomers. The emphasis will be on the pair ...
Dynamics and "Phase Behavior" of Foams and Concentrated Emulsions
ABSTRACT Eli Ruckenstein CTS-9522710 SUNY Buffalo The stability of foams and concentrated liquid-liquid emulsions is a necessary prerequisite for their utilization in any practical application. Gravity driven drainage of ...
Modification of the Surface Properties of Polymers
The interfacial free energy between a polymer and water is relatively large. As a result, proteins, platelets and cells will deposit upon its surface. By modifying the surface properties of the polymers, one can reduce the ...
Rejuvenation of Supported Metal Catalyst
Solubilization and Microemulsions
Chitosan-Based Affinity Separation Membranes
CTS - 9629458 Eli Ruckenstein SUNY Buffalo Abstract The project will focus on using chitosan to develop microporous membranes for affinity separations. Compared to currently available membranes based on nylon or cellulose, ...
Emulsion Pathways to Composite Polymeric Membranes for Separation Processes
In this project the investigator proposes a systematic evaluation of a new-type of membrane to be used in separations processes. The principal novel aspect of the proposed work is formation of the membrane by polymerization ...
