    Evaluation of the Antibacterial and Antifungal Capacity of Nanoemulsions Loaded with Synthetic Chalcone Derivatives Di-Benzyl Cinnamaldehyde and Benzyl 4-Aminochalcone

    Abstract With the increase in antimicrobial resistance, it has become necessary to explore alternative approaches for combating and preventing diseases. DB-cinnamaldehyde (CNM) and Benzyl4-amino (B4AM) are bioactive compounds derived from chalcones but with restricted solubility in aqueous media. Nanoemulsions can enhance the solubility of compounds and can be a promising alternative in the development of novel antimicrobials, with reduced side effects and prolonged release. The objective of this study was to evaluate the stability of oil-in-water nanoemulsions loaded with two distinct types of chalcones at two different dosages, to propose a stable formulation with antimicrobial properties.… More > Graphic Abstract

    An Experimental Study on the Interaction between Hydrate Formation and Wax Precipitation in Waxy Oil-in-Water Emulsions

    Xincan Song1,3,4, Lin Wang1,3,4,*, Cheng Yu1,2, Jiaxin Chen1,3,4, Linjie Ma1,3,4

    Energy Engineering, Vol.120, No.8, pp. 1837-1852, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ee.2023.027637

    Abstract The coupled formation of wax crystals and hydrates is a critical issue for the safety of deep-sea oil and gas exploration and subsea transport pipeline flow. Therefore, this paper conducts an experimental study on the characteristics of methane hydrate formation in a water-in-oil (W/O) system with different wax crystal contents and explores the influence of different initial experimental pressures on the induction period and maximum rate of hydrate formation. The wavelet function was introduced to process the reaction rate and calculate the maximum speed of hydrate formation. Notably, the higher the pressure, the smaller the… More >

    Physicochemical Characterization and Antimicrobial Properties of Inulin Acetate Obtained by Microwave-Assisted Synthesis

    Nadezhda Petkova1,*, Radka Arabadzhieva1, Dragomir Vassilev2, Gergana Gencheva1, Yulian Tumbarski3, Tsveteslava Ignatova-Ivanova4, Sevginar Ibryamova4, Mina Todorova1, Milena Koleva2, Panteley Denev1

    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.8, No.4, pp. 365-381, 2020, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2020.09292

    Abstract Microwave-assisted irradiation was performed for esterification of chicory inulin with high degree of polymerization with acetic anhydride without a solvent only with a catalyst. The resulting esters were characterized by melting point, hydrophilic-lipophilic balance, thin-layer chromatography, ultraviolet spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Inulin acetate demonstrated a high degree of acetylation (2.5–3.0) and presented a white, water-insoluble substance with bitter taste. The FTIR and NMR spectra confirmed esterification and demonstrated the incorporation of hydrophobic residue to the water soluble inulin backbone. Swelling capacity, water holding, oil-holding capacities, the foamability,… More >

    Scalings for Droplet Sizes in Shear-Driven Breakup: Non-Microfluidic Ways to Monodisperse Emulsions

    V. Cristini1, Y. Renardy2

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.2, No.2, pp. 77-94, 2006, DOI:10.3970/fdmp.2006.002.077

    Abstract We review studies of a drop of viscous liquid, suspended in another liquid, and undergoing breakup in an impulsively started shear flow. Stokes flow conditions as well as the effects of inertia are reported. They reveal a universal scaling for the fragments, which allows one to use sheared emulsions to produce monodispersity as an alternative to microfluidic devices. More >
