  1. 1. Effects of surfactant adjuvants on plant leaf cuticle barrier properties

    Författare :Anton Fagerström; Malmö högskola; []
    Nyckelord :Adjuvant; Surfacant; Cuticle; Tebuconazole; Diffusion; Clivia miniata Regel leaf; Model wax; Phase diagram; Hydration; Eutectic melting; Crystalline domains; Softening; Wax film; Quartz Crystal Microbalance with dissipation QCM-D ; Differential Scanning Calorimetry DSC ; Small- and Wide-angle X-ray Diffraction SWAXD ;

    Sammanfattning : I avhandlingen undersöks växelverkan mellan det yttersta lagret på växters blad (cutikeln), aktiva substanser, och ämnen som tillsätts för att öka bekämpningsmedlens effekt, i detta fall vissa former av tensider. Barriären som hindrar upptag av främmande ämnen i växten sitter i cutikeln. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Thermally Induced Fracture Performance of Asphalt Mixtures

    Författare :Prabir Kumar Das; Björn Birgisson; Dallas Little; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Low temperature cracking; asphalt concrete fracture mechanics; viscoelasticity; non-linear thermal contraction coefficient; atomic force microscopy; wax; wax crystallization; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Sammanfattning : A major distress mode in asphalt pavements is low temperature cracking, which results from the contraction and expansion of the asphalt pavement under extreme temperature changes. The potential for low temperature cracking is an interplay between the environment, the road structure and importantly the properties of the asphalt mixture. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hydroconversion of model Fischer‑Tropsch wax over noble metal/silica-alumina catalysts

    Författare :Francesco Regali; Magali Boutonnet; J.W. Niemantsverdriet; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; hydroconversion; Fischer-Tropsch wax; n-hexadecane; bifunctional hydrocracking; hydrogenolysis; silica-alumina; platinum; palladium;

    Sammanfattning : Synthetic fuels produced using the Fischer-Tropsch technology will play an important role in the future of the transportation sector. The Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) allows converting synthesis gas (CO + H2) into fuels of outstanding quality. The synthesis gas can be obtained from different carbon sources: natural gas, coal and biomass. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Enhancement and Characterization of Films for Barrier and Release Applications

    Författare :Maria Petersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; release; edible materials; petroleum wax; starch; acetoglyceride; microstructure; water vapour permeability; phase separation; protein;

    Sammanfattning : Films and coatings can improve the quality and shelf-life of food products by acting as barriers to e.g. water vapour and oxygen. Many edible biopolymer films, based on polysaccharides and proteins, form excellent oxygen barriers but most often provide only poor water vapour barriers. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Tailoring adhesion and wetting properties of cellulose fibers and model surfaces

    Författare :Emil Gustafsson; Lars Wågberg; Monika Österberg; Mikael Hedenqvist; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : The layer-by-layer (LbL) technique was used to modify the surface of cellulose fibers by consecutive adsorption of poly(allylamine hydrochloride) (PAH) and poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) followed by a final adsorbed layer of anionic paraffin wax colloids. Paper hand sheets made from the modified fibers were found to be highly hydrophobic with a contact angle of 150°. LÄS MER
