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. ...
Rheology and gelation of physical polymer gels
The discovery of new potent and water-insoluble drugs has emphasized the need for novel drug-delivery systems and personalized dosification. Biopolymers solutions are an alternative over conventional methods since they can ...
Rheology of rodlike nanoparticle suspensions in lyotropic liquid crystalline polymers
Liquid crystalline polymers are ideal to develop oriented and anisotropic materials. The incorporation of a nanoparticle may improve or add properties to a matrix. Small concentrations of particles smaller than the liquid ...
Single particle dynamics around the boundaries of nematic media
Brownian motion of a colloid suspended in a lyotropic chromonic liquid crystal (LCLC's) leads to the description of the transport properties of the medium through a unification of theories where the confinement effect is ...
