A Solvothermal Route Decorated on Different Substrates: Controllable Separation of an Oil/Water Mixture to a Stabilized Nanoscale Emulsion.

Summary of "A Solvothermal Route Decorated on Different Substrates: Controllable Separation of an Oil/Water Mixture to a Stabilized Nanoscale Emulsion."

A facile solvothermal route is developed to fabricate polydivinylbenzene (PDVB) and decorate the polymer onto porous substrates. "Controllable" separation can be realized by selecting substrates with different pore size. The PDVB modified mesh shows superhydrophobicity/superoleophilicity, which can be used for oil/seawater mixture separation, while the PDVB modified membrane exhibits highly hydrophobicity/superoleophilicity, which is able to separate surfactant stabilized nanoscale water-in-oil emulsions.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Process by which organisms use various cues to develop a route to a destination and their ability to travel such a planned route.

The separation of individuals or groups resulting in the lack of or minimizing of social contact and/or communication. This separation may be accomplished by physical separation, by social barriers and by psychological mechanisms. In the latter, there may be interaction but no real communication.

The separation of particles from a suspension by passage through a filter with very fine pores. In ultrafiltration the separation is accomplished by convective transport; in DIALYSIS separation relies instead upon differential diffusion. Ultrafiltration occurs naturally and is a laboratory procedure. Artificial ultrafiltration of the blood is referred to as HEMOFILTRATION or HEMODIAFILTRATION (if combined with HEMODIALYSIS).

Nutritional support given via the alimentary canal or any route connected to the gastrointestinal system (i.e., the enteral route). This includes oral feeding, sip feeding, and tube feeding using nasogastric, gastrostomy, and jejunostomy tubes.

Anxiety experienced by an individual upon separation from a person or object of particular significance to him.
