Electronic transitions and the high pressure chemistry and physics of solids by H. G Drickamer( Book )

14 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is no paucity of books on high pressure. Beginning with P.W. Bridgman's The Physics of High Pressure, books of general interest include the two-volume Physics and Chemistry of High Pressure, edited by R.S. Bradley, and the series, Advances in High Pressure Research, as well as the report on the Lake George Conference in 1960. Solid state physics is well represented by Solids Under Pressure, edited by Paul and Warschauer, by Physics of Solids at High Pressure, edited by Tomizuka and Emrick, and by Properties Physiques des Solides sous Pression, edited by Bloch, as well as by chapters in Volumes 6, 13, 17, and 19 of Solid State Physics, edited by Seitz, Turnbull, and Ehrenreich. Chemistry in gases and liquids is covered in Weale's Chemical Reactions at High Pressure, and Hamann's Physico-chemical Effects of Pressure. In addition to the coverage of techniques and calibrations in the above volumes, Modern Very High Pressure Techniques, edited by Wentorf, High Pressure Methods in Solid State Research, by C.C. Bradley, The Accurate Characterization of the High Pressure Environment, edited by E.C. Lloyd, and a chapter in Volume 11 of Solid State Physics are devoted entirely to this facet of high pressure research. It is not our plan either to supersede or extend these approaches. It is our purpose here to discuss the effect of high pressure on the electronic properties of solids

Understanding the role of lipids in tear-film stability by Danielle Lurisa Leiske( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The tear film is the thin layer of fluid that covers the surface of the eye. While the functions of the tear film are numerous, the primary role is to protect the corneal surface. When an individual has dry eye disease the tear film breaks up and exposes the corneal epithelial cells, which leads to ocular irritation. The primary components of the outermost layer of the tear film are meibomian lipids, a mixture of long chain nonpolar lipids. Although this lipid layer is thought to play an important role in tear film stability, little is known about the structure and viscoelasticity of meibum, or how these properties relate to tear film stability in dry eye disease. The primary focus of this work was to understand how meibum behaves at an air-water interface to mimic the in vivo conditions of the tear film lipid layer. At room temperature meibum was found to form a predominantly elastic interfacial film, although the film became more fluid as it was heated to body temperature. Interfacial x-ray scattering at room temperature revealed ordered lattices and multilayers at high levels of compression that contributed to high elasticity. In bulk samples, small angle x-ray scattering identified two populations of lipid lamellar phases with unique melt behavior. Meibum collected from patients with meibomian gland dysfunction, a form of dry eye disease, contained the same crystalline phases; however, the prevalence of those phases was reduced indicating a quantifiable change in lipid composition. To ascertain whether meibum viscoelastic properties are relevant to tear film performance, the effects of surface elasticity on an advancing droplet were studied. While droplets covered with a Newtonian monolayer followed classical hydrodynamics, meibum and other insoluble surfactants with surface shear elasticity induced periodic stick-release of the contact line at low advancing velocities and non-ideal behavior at higher velocities. Finally, to explore how a water soluble surfactant may be used to repair a compromised lipid layer, the interactions between a poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(butylene oxide) block copolymer (EOBO) and a model phospholipid monolayer were studied. The lipids and EOBO remained phase separated at the interface, yet EOBO was able to restore the native lattice spacing and mechanical properties of the lipid monolayer, which could make it a valuable tool for a number of biological applications. Meibomian lipids are a complex natural extract with a number of remarkable properties. Although the lipids present in meibum are diverse, meibum can form an elastic interfacial film with ordered phases in bulk material or at an interface. We have shown a link between meibum structure and elasticity, which both depend on temperature. Major composition changes that occur with disease could alter meibum melt temperature and viscoelasticity, which will ultimately modulate the ability of meibum to stabilize the tear film

A Corona Study Relevant to Electrostatic Printing Process by C. W Frank( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An electrostatic printing method is used to make multicolor reproductions of topographic maps. An area of interest of the process is the possible action of the double corona charging units in the machine on the chemistry of the materials that pass through the corona discharges during the printing sequence. The study will show what effects are observable on representative examples of the dye sensitizer, toner, binder, dispersant, and electrophotographic paper used in the process when these materials are exposed under assimilated printer conditions. Four compounds were observed under conditions which simulated the corona unit. It was found that the only compound formed via the discharge was that of ozone (O3). Phthalocyanine blue, Isopar G, Fluorescein, and an alkyd resin were subjected to ozone concentrations. Other studies including paper charging rates as a function of atmosphere, toner, sedimentation rates, and the effect of ozone on the electrophotographic paper have been carried out. (Author)

Characterization and structure of poly(ethylene glycol)/poly(acrylic acid) interpenetrating polymer network hydrogels by Dale Jon Waters( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hydrogels are hydrophilic polymer networks that can imbibe large amounts of water, but are insoluble due to the presence of network cross-links. Hydrogels are attractive materials for a number of applications including soft tissue replacement, three-dimensional cell scaffolds, and drug delivery vehicles. The high water content of hydrogels is essential in order to obtain a high rate of diffusion of critical cell nutrients, waste products, and/or active drug molecules. Despite their attractive diffusion characteristics, the applications of high water content hydrogels are limited by their extremely fragile nature. This work examines the mechanical properties and molecular-level structure of poly(ethylene glycol)/poly(acrylic acid) interpenetrating polymer networks (PEG/PAA IPNs), which have both a high water content (80 -- 90 wt %) and an enhanced initial modulus and fracture stress compared to PEG single networks. The mechanical properties were characterized primarily by compressive measurements and interpreted in terms of the initial modulus, strain at break, and stress at break. Small-angle X-ray and neutron scattering (SAXS/SANS) were used to probe the molecular-level structure of PEG/PAA IPNs. Ultimately, a mechanism of strength enhancement is proposed based on the structure and swelling properties of the IPNs. SAXS measurements revealed that photopolymerized end-linked PEG single networks, which serve as the first network in PEG/PAA IPNs, have a weakly ordered structure due to the uniform molecular weight between dense cross-link junctions. The position of the correlation peak was used to determine the average distance between cross-link junctions or the average PEG chain end-to-end distance within the network. This distance ranged from approximately 6 to 16 nm, dependent upon both the polymer volume fraction and the molecular weight of the PEG macromonomers. SANS measurements with contrast matching allowed the individual structures of the PEG and PAA networks within the IPN to be probed. When PAA initially interpenetrated the PEG network at low pH, the PEG network structure was largely undisturbed and was similar to that of a PEG single network. As the pH increased to physiological pH 7.4, the PAA network became ionized and swelled significantly. This swelling disrupted the weak ordering of the PEG network and forced the PEG chains to expand. At physiological pH, the PEG chains within the IPN were extended to 45 - 70 % of their maximum achievable length. Near these high extension ratios, the force required to further strain the PEG chains increased due to the entropic effects of finite chain extensibility. This led to a three-fold increase in both initial modulus and fracture stress for PEG/PAA IPNs at pH 7.4 compared to PEG single networks. The enhanced mechanical properties of PEG/PAA IPN hydrogels broaden their use to a number of applications requiring both high water content and robust mechanical properties. One such application is for a fully synthetic artificial cornea, wherein both a high rate of nutrient diffusion and robust mechanical properties are required. The mechanism of strength enhancement employed in PEG/PAA IPNs may also be applied to other swollen polymer network systems where an enhanced modulus and fracture stress are desired without an increased solids content
