mixture

 [miks´chur]
a combination of different drugs or ingredients, as a fluid with other fluids or solids, or of a solid with a liquid.

mix·ture

(miks'chŭr),
1. A mutual incorporation of two or more substances, without chemical union, the physical characteristics of each of the components being retained. A mechanical mixture is a mixture of particles or masses distinguishable as such under the microscope or in other ways; a physical mixture is a more intimate mixture of molecules, as in the case of gases and many solutions.
2. In chemistry, a mingling together of two or more substances without the occurrence of a reaction by which they would lose their individual properties, that is, without permanent gain or loss of electrons.
3. In pharmacy, a preparation, consisting of a liquid holding an insoluble medicinal substance in suspension by means of acacia, sugar, or some other viscid material.
[L. mixtura or mistura]

mixture

[miks′chər]
Etymology: L, miscere, to mix
1 a substance composed of ingredients that are not chemically combined and do not necessarily occur in a fixed proportion.
2 (in pharmacology) a liquid containing one or more medications in suspension. The proportions of the ingredients are specific to each mixture. Compare compound, solution. See also mistura.

This behavior was used to prove homogeneous mixture for a number of molecular composites and is commonly investigated by DSC, but results obtained by dielectric, mechanical, methods, etc.
A homogeneous mixture and molecular reinforcing effects were found.
In this case, only for highly diluted systems, one could expect homogeneous mixtures.
Therefore, only systems with strong specific interactions between coils and rods such as hydrogen and ionic bondings are candidates for homogeneous mixtures caused by the mixing enthalpy.
However, for some systems of polyimide/poly(etherimide) homogeneous mixtures (6, 8, 30, 31, 245) with interesting molecular reinforcement effects especially for drawn samples were reported, even the polyimide could be called a rigid rod.
In both cases, homogeneous mixtures were obtained after pre-reaction, which retained their clear and transparent appearance also after solvent removal and compounding with DDS and the difunctional epoxy monomer, this last component having been added to the base epoxy system to reduce the network density.
Hence, the microphase separated block copolymer, comprising dissolved homo-PCL, coexists with a PCL-rich homogeneous mixture of the constituents.
Hence, blends display microphase separation in a broad range of blend composition and eventually coexistence of the block copolymer swollen with homopolymer and a homogeneous mixture of block copolymer and SAN.
Mixing is required to create homogeneous mixtures that provide representative samples, and prove their efficacy.
Focusing on mixture and separated flows, it combines theory and applications to demonstrate the way these principles are put to use in dealing with a variety of homogeneous mixtures, as well as separated liquid-liquid, gas-solid, liquid-solid and gas-liquid flow problems, which may be steady or transient, laminar or turbulent.
Although the web frowning technology is of vital importance to the commercial success of the plants supplied, it is of equal importance that the rest of the plant is specifically designed for the particular needs when producing airlaid products, which, for a large part, contain homogeneous mixtures of fibers and powders, and in particular short fibre fluff pulp.
