  1. 1. Hydrophobic Impregnation of Concrete Structures : Effects on Concrete Properties

    Författare :Anders Selander; Johan Silfwerbrand; Jan Trägårdh; Mårten Janz; Andreas Gerdes; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydrophobic impregnation; silane; siloxane; concrete; surface treatment; water repellent agent; building protection; impregnering; betong; silan; siloxan; ytbehandling; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : Hydrophobic impregnations often referred to as water repellent agents, today mainly consisting of alkylalkoxysilanes, are often used on concrete to prolong the service life of the structure. This is accomplished by protecting the reinforcement bars from chlorides or by changing the moisture content inside. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Hydrophobic surfaces: Effect of surface structure on wetting and interaction forces

    Författare :Petra M Hansson; Per M. Claesson; Agne Swerin; Adam C Simonsen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; hydrophobic surface; superhydrophobic surface; atomic force microscopy; surface forces; capillary forces; cavitaion; surface roughness; friction; wetting; confocal Raman; contact angles; surface preparation; Langmuir-Blodgett;

    Sammanfattning : The use of hydrophobic surfaces is important for many processes both in nature and industry. Interactions between hydrophobic species play a key role in industrial applications such as water-cleaning procedures and pitch control during papermaking but they also give information on how to design surfaces like hydrophobic mineral pigments.

  3. 3. The effect of sequence truncation and amino-acid substitutions on the biophysical properties of protein S and calbindin D9k

    Författare :Karin Julenius; Biofysikalisk kemi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; surface plasmon resonance; fluorescence spectroscopy; circular dichroism spectroscopy; NMR spectroscopy; hydrophobic effect; protein stability; dimerization; cooperativity; calcium binding; EGF-module; EF-hand; calbindin D9k; protein S; synthet; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Sammanfattning : Protein S is a modular protein and a cofactor in the protein C anticoagulant system. It consists of a Gla-module, a thrombin-sensitive loop, four EGF-modules and a SHBG-like module. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Protein-Polymer Interaction and Association in Aqueous Solution

    Författare :Malin Jönsson; Biokemi och Strukturbiologi; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; Makromolekylär kemi; Macromolecular chemistry; enzymologi; Proteiner; enzymology; Proteins; Aqueous two-phase systems; Monte Carlo Simulations; hydrophobic effect; surface hydrophobicity; plasmid DNA; Protein; polymer;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis has been to study protein-polymer interaction and association. Two different techniques were used; Monte Carlo simulations were combined with partitioning in polymeric aqueous two-phase systems. Monte Carlo simulations have been used to evaluate the hydrophobic interaction in electrolyte solution. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Material Properties of Bulk Hydrophobic Concrete in a Nordic Environment

    Författare :Patrick Rogers; Johan Silfwerbrand; Tang Luping; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; alkyl alkoxysilane; capillary suction; chloride ingress; concrete; hydrophobic agents; triacylglycerides; Betongbyggnad; Concrete Structures;

    Sammanfattning : Concrete in its unaltered form allows the mass transfer of fluids into and out of its microstructure. These fluids can contain detrimental solutes which change the chemistry of the cement paste and/or the corrosion properties of the reinforcement bars, most noticeably hydrogen carbonates (HCO3-), oxygen (O2) and chloride ions (Cl-).
