Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations were used to study the thermodynamic properties of asphalt binder components, namely asphaltene, and other solvents, such as pentane or toluene, before and after ad...
Asphaltene deposition in petroleum refineries is known to be problematic as it reduces efficiency and may lead to structural failure or production downtime. Though several successful approaches have b...
The effects of realistic roughness and elasticity on the interactions between charged silica spheres are studied as a function of surface potential, screening length, interfacial energy and roughness....
Near-well blockage caused by asphaltene deposition often occurs during the process of crude oil exploitation. It can reduce the porosity and permeability of reservoirs and seriously affects the migrat...
Understanding the nature of the interactions between natural organic matter (NOM) and engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) is of crucial importance in understanding the fate and behaviour of engineered nan...
Contact lenses modify the structure of the tear film by biophysical and biochemical interactions. These changes may explain more common dry eye symptoms and may sometimes cause lens failur...
The proposed study aims to examine the effectiveness of Nanit-Insights, an app-based intervention for parents who wish to improve their infant's sleep.

A prototype support surface has been designed which aims to successfully redistributes the pressures exerted and provides sufficient support to human soft tissue We want to prove the effe...
Electric power supply devices which convert biological energy, such as chemical energy of metabolism or mechanical energy of periodic movements, into electrical energy.
An anionic surface-active agent used for its wetting properties in industry and used in medicine as an irritant and sclerosing agent for hemorrhoids and varicose veins.
The behavior and interactions of matter and energy in outer space.
The transfer of energy of a given form among different scales of motion. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed). It includes the transfer of kinetic energy and the transfer of chemical energy. The transfer of chemical energy from one molecule to another depends on proximity of molecules so it is often used as in techniques to measure distance such as the use of FORSTER RESONANCE ENERGY TRANSFER.
The reactions and interactions of atoms and molecules, the changes in their structure and composition, and associated energy changes.
