Mesenchymal condensation is a pre-requisite of chondrogenesis during embryonic development. The current understanding of chondrogenesis is limited in terms of chondrogenic condensation mechanisms. In particular, the role of matrix stiffness on homotypic cell-cell interactions leading to the establishment of distinct aggregated chondrogenic morphology from(More)
Quantification of mass transfer in porous microchannel is of paramount importance in several applications. Transport of neutral solute in presence of convective-diffusive EOF having non-Newtonian rheology, in a porous microchannel was presented in this article. The governing mass transfer equation coupled with velocity field was solved along with associated(More)
An assessment of the ability of a micellar surface to bind different metal ions using molecular simulation is presented in this study. Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) is considered as the anionic surfactant. Various relevant characteristics of SDS-metal ion systems are estimated to quantify preferential binding of metal ions. These are electrostatic energy,(More)
Mass transport of a neutral solute for a power law fluid in a porous microtube under electro-osmotic flow regime is characterized in this study. Combined electro-osmotic and pressure driven flow is conducted herein. An analytical solution of concentration profile within mass transfer boundary layer is derived from the first principle. The solute transport(More)
Arsenic contamination mitigation technologies have been adsorption-based, but the most widely-used and traditionally available adsorbents suffered inherent limitations, including cost infeasibility and problems associated with regeneration and disposal of the spent adsorbent. The present technology is based on indigenously developed activated laterite(More)
A generalized kinetic model is proposed for the first time for dye removal using polyelectrolytes in application of polyelectrolyte enhanced ultrafiltration. Three polyelectrolyte-dye systems, reported in the literature have been taken up for case studies. Different cases, namely, nature of dye and polyelectrolyte system and their concentration, effect of(More)
