The effects of surface functionalization on rheology, structure and transport properties of nanocomposites (2014-09-16)In this thesis, the effects of surface functionalization using hydrophobic silanes on properties of nanocomposites comprising 42 nm silica particles suspended in a melt of polyethylene-glycol (PEG) are studied using ...
(2010-05-19)Ion channels are part of nature’s solution for regulating biological environments. Every ion channel consists of a chain of amino acids carrying a strong and sharply varying permanent charge, folded in such a way that it ...
Probing the effect of microstructure on water diffusion in engineered or biological materials with MRI (2013-05-24)Water diffusion within skeletal muscles is a complex mass transport process due to the presence of barriers at multiple scales and the anisotropic structure of muscles. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an effective ...
