Analysis of reaction pathways on the catalytic conversion of CO2 using quantum mechanical calculations
The greenhouse gas CO2 is an inexpensive and abundant feedstock that may be used to produce valuable organic compounds. The main goal of this work was to unravel reaction pathways for CO2 conversion through hydrogenation ...
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 ...
Rheological characterization of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose solutions: Gelation and molecular interactions with additives
The discovery and development of highly hydrophobic drugs represents an additional challenge for the pharmaceutical industry, as traditional methods of encapsulation, administration, and dosage are not always appropriate. ...
Synthesis and characterization of a novel palladium nanostructured ensemble supported on anodized alumina substrates for hydrogen sensing applications
Hydrogen is a versatile molecule used in many industrial processes. Hydrogen is flammable at concentrations between 4% to 75% v/v at atmospheric pressure with a tendency to leak. There are a variety of hydrogen sensors, ...
Dynamics and rheology of Janus drops
This dissertation sheds some light on the dynamics and rheological properties of compound multiphase drops in the creeping motion limit of the fluid phases from a fundamental standpoint. A compound multiphase drop can ...
