LCST, which is generally defined as the cloud point) of the casting solution, and the cloud point was measured by a self-made device [46].
completed where 2500 adolescents have been imparted skill training whereas 500 students were completing training in 20 LCST centers.
The LCST of a polymer is influenced by the hydrophobic, hydrophilic moieties in its molecular chains.
The driving force responsible for shifting the LCST is hydrogen bonding and hydrophobic interaction of the macromolecules.
Currently, extensive research is going on with regard to the modification of the LCST of the thermosensitive polymers in drug delivery systems for specific targeting of the drugs.
Following this, the bioconjugate-affinity complex can be phase-separated by raising the temperature above the LCST of the smart polymer (or by changing the pH if it is a pH-sensitive smart polymer), which selectively removes the biotinylated target molecule from solution (26).
SALS confirms the existence of an LCST for this blend system and also for the PI-125/PB D-24 blend sy stem.
Below that temperature, the gel is swollen, hydrated, and hydrophilic, and above that LCST, the gel becomes collapsed, dehydrated and hydrophobic.
The separation or gelling of such polymeric solutions is usually called the "cloud point" because the clear solution characteristically becomes cloudy at temperatures higher than the LCST of a polymer comprising water soluble units and units with an LCST have heat-induced gelling or heat-induced thickening properties.
Because of the unique, fully scalable design of the BBT conditional access solution, cable operators can choose between local, regional or national control of the LCST.
