Structure and rheology of colloid-in-liquid crystal composites with novel anisotropic and hierarchical microstructures
The Green's functions integral technique is used to determine the conduction heat transfer temperature field in flat plates, circular plates, and solid spheres with saw tooth heat generating sources. In all cases the ...
Processing and characterization of nematic co-polymer Phba/Pet nanocomposite films via hot-melt extrusion
In this research work, the effect of particle shape (i.e. rod-like, spherical and platellet) and concentration on the liquid crystalline structure of poly (4-benzoic acidco-ethylene terephthalate) (PHBA/PET) was evaluated ...
Stable colloidal dispersions of magnetic nanoparticles in aqueous media and polymer melts
The work presented as part of this thesis describes a process to obtain two types of conventionally used magnetic nanoparticles, magnetite and cobalt ferrite, with a narrow size distribution that can be suspended in aqueous ...
