This work presents a novel and facile method for fabricating paper-based microfluidic devices by means of coupling of hydrophobic silane to paper fibers followed by deep UV-lithography. After filter paper being simply immersed in an octadecyltrichlorosilane (OTS) solution in n-hexane for 5 min, the hydrophilic paper became highly hydrophobic (water contact(More)
Chemically unstable lipophilic bioactives, such as polyunsaturated lipids, often have to be encapsulated in emulsion-based delivery systems before they can be incorporated into foods, supplements, and pharmaceuticals. The objective of this study was to develop highly concentrated emulsion-based fish oil delivery systems using natural emulsifiers. Fish(More)
Paper-based microfluidic devices are emerging as a new technology for simple, low-cost, portable, and disposable diagnostic and monitoring platform. This article presents a novel method for fabricating microfluidic devices on paper by means of octadecyltrichlorosilane self-assembling and UV/O3-patterning. The hydrophilic filter paper was uniformly coated(More)
The impact of interfacial coatings comprised of polyphenol-protein-carbohydrate conjugates on the properties of nutraceutical-fortified lipid droplets during digestion was investigated. Surface-active chlorogenic acid-lactoferrin-polydextrose (CA-LF-PD) conjugate was synthesized as emulsifier to stabilize lipid droplets in β-carotene-enriched oil-in-water(More)
In this paper, a split-ring resonator is loaded to a monopole antenna for the purpose of miniaturization. As a result, the monopole antenna is shortened from quarter wavelength to ninth wavelength. Then, a Non-Foster circuit is loaded to the input port of the SRR-based monopole antenna. Due to the negative capacitance characteristic, the Non-Foster circuit(More)
In this study, the effect of carrier oils on the physicochemical properties of orange oil beverage emulsions was investigated. The beverage emulsions were prepared by soybean soluble polysaccharides (SSPS) using a two-stage processing of homogenization. Results showed that the presence of carrier oils could improve the physical properties of beverage(More)
