Evaluation and modulation of electrospun collagen nanofiber diameter
Electrospinning is a process for generating ultrathin fibers from a polymeric fluid using an electric field. It is relatively easy to implement, but it is itself complex due to the many parameters that govern the formation ...
Effect of impeller speed on particle size distribution during high shear wet granulation process
Wet granulation is the process where powders are mixed with a binder agent which is agitated with a mixer and forms a granulated product. This process is commonly used to better the processing characteristics of a powdered ...
Thermogravimetric characterization of polystyrene-based, triblock copolymers: effects of sulfonation, counter-ion substitution, number average molecular weight, and polystyrene weight fraction
In this study, poly (styrene-isobutylene-styrene) (SIBS) was characterized using thermogravimetric analysis. The thermal behavior of three types of SIBS, with different average number molecular weight, Mn , and polystyrene ...
Cost analysis of local bioproducts processing plant using microalgae biomass feedstock
The need to produce bioproducts useful for the human wealth derived from microalgae, such as proteins, lipid and carbohydrates is gaining importance in recent years. In spite of the broad availability of technologies for ...
Improving continuous manufacturing process reliability through feeding control system
Continuous manufacturing processes are complex systems composed of multiple unit operations where process variables and material properties interaction allow the development of soft PAT sensors. Hence, this study was focused ...
An evaluation of optical band gap in photovoltaic polymers for solar energy capture
Organic solar cells are a very promising technology for use in the renewable energy field. Band gap measurements on liquid phase for different polymers were studied, and the possible radiation harvest and reasoning for ...
