Among the topics are nanomechanics of coatings for electronic and optical applications, structural and magnetic properties of nanosized barium hexaferrite powders obtained by microemulsion, a highly effective selective absorbing coating for solar thermal collectors, the wetting ability of silver-based molten alloys on graphite substrate, the pressureless sintering of superhard materials based on boron carbide, thickness-dependent interface parameters of silicon oxide films grown on plasma hydrogenated silicon, and some medical applications of nanomaterials.
One potential area of progress involves scientists scrutinising microemulsion as a means of making it easier for manufacturers to recover, recycle, and reuse nanoparticles.
The resulting microemulsion complies with EU food regulations and is compatible with both Vegicaps Soft Capsules and gelatin shell formulations.
In a paper published in the December Chaos, researchers at the University of Liege call this microemulsion of oil and water "the mayonnaise droplet." From earlier experiments, researchers knew that on a bed of oil, blobs of oil will bounce several times.
The fire resistant fuel that was developed--referred to as fire-safe fuel--was a clear to hazy microemulsion consisting of water, emulsifier premix (equal amounts of the emulsifier and an aromatic concentrate), and diesel fuel.
Alvarez-Figueroa and Blanco-Mendez [17] performed in vitro assays to investigate the effectiveness of transdermal administration of MTX by iontophoretic delivery from two types of hydrogel and passive delivery from two types of microemulsion. They observed that both iontophoretic transdermal delivery of MTX from hydrogels and passive transdermal delivery from microemulsions were more effective than passive transdermal diffusion from MTX solutions.
In this work, different sized luminescent silica nanoparticles have been successful prepared through a reverse microemulsion method.
It is an internal injection of wall structures with thixotropic microemulsion creams based on silane-siloxane and water.
