Dynamics of Chemotherapeutic Drug Release from Liposomes Using Low-Frequency Ultrasound
This thesis focuses on the study of liposomes; nanoparticles that can act as anticancer drug carriers, in combination with ultrasound applied as a drug trigger, with the objective of reducing the side effects caused by ...
Model Development, Application and Optimization of Chlorination Breakpoint in Wastewater Treatment
Chlorination in wastewater treatment is regarded as a complicated process due to its ammonia and nitrite content. Chlorine added to such systems reacts with ammonia undergoing episodes of complex reactions, resulting in ...
Removal of Hexavalent Chromium from Wastewater using Modified Multiwall Carbon Nanotubes
Recently, the interest and research on the removal of heavy metals from wastewater have dramatically increased due to the adverse effects they have on humans, flora and fauna. Chromium, which is a heavy metal, is the tenth ...
Membrane Bioreactor-Desalination Microbial Fuel Cell Hybrid System
The microbial desalination fuel cell (MDFC) is an emerging desalination technology offering great promise of high salinity removal with zero energy input. Moreover, the membrane bioreactor (MBR) is of great reliability in ...
Effects of Operating Conditions on Water Absorption Capacity of Superabsorbent Hydrogels
Superabsorbent hydrogels are three-dimensional networks of hydrophilic polymers that have an extraordinary ability to absorb and retain water. Therefore, they have been utilized in many applications such as disposal diapers, ...
Bingham Fluid Flow in the Entrance Region of a Pipe
The isothermal laminar flow of a Bingham fluid in the entrance region of a circular pipe has been studied previously by many authors using different approaches. As current research stands, the momentum integral approach ...
