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]

With respect to the particle size of mixtures in Table 2, it is seen that by increasing the levels of the flotation tailing, the mixture becomes finer as to the textural appearance and tend to have a higher optimal moisture value.
Regarding the maximum apparent dry unit weight, it was expected lower values for granulometrically finer mixtures. However, the observed behavior was not consistent with the particle size characteristics, which can be explained by the little divergence in the real dry unit weight of solids of the different tailings, resulting therefore in a finer mixture.
In order to understand specific intermolecular interactions between 2,5 hexandione with cyclopentanol or cyclohexanol mixtures (binary and ternary systems, the density and viscosity measurements for these systems at 298.15, 303.15, 308.15 and 313.15 K have been studied.
The binary and ternary liquid mixtures in stopper measuring volume flasks (50 ml).
To determine the maximum dry unit weight and the corresponding optimum moisture of the mixtures, the Proctor compaction tests were carried out according to ASTM D698-78 (1989) [22].
The shear strengths, shear parameters (cohesion and the angle of internal friction), and volume changes of the mixtures were derived from test results.
To easily distinguish the four types of mixtures, the names for mixtures are called by KS (asphalt mixture using general binder), K1 (asphalt mixture using KTR-101 binder), K2 (asphalt mixture using KTR-201 binder), and K4 (asphalt mixture using KTR-401H binder) in this paper.
The Superpave mix design was conducted to determine the optimal asphalt content for asphalt mixtures. We have decided that the mix design for a KS mixture can be applied to other mixture designs because the quantity of the tested asphalt binder is limited and our objective is to compare the performances of them with each other.
To ensure that inherent toxicity of our tested chemicals and their mixtures did not induce a downturn in testosterone synthesis, thereby confounding any genuine anti-androgenic effects, we assessed the functional integrity of the testosterone-producing Leydig cell population by immunolabeling of cytochrome P450 (CYP11A1), a key enzyme of the androgen biosynthesis pathway.

Aims of the Research are the study of the influence of structure of aliphatic n-alcohols, phenols, sodium salts of a-alkoxycarbonylsulfuric acids and their mixtures on toxicity towards Daphnia magna using simplex representation of the molecular structure and the determination of molecular fragments with positive or negative influence on the toxicity.
Mixtures, at each cutting stage, produced higher DM yield than Egyptian clover alone but lower than oat alone.
