In this paper we review molecular modeling investigations of polymer/layered-silicate intercalates, as model systems to explore polymers in nanoscopically confined spaces. The atomic-scale picture, as revealed by computer simulations, is presented in the context of salient results from a wide range of experimental techniques. This approach provides insights(More)
A new thermocatalytic method to destroy chlorinated solvents has been developed in the laboratory and tested in a pilot field study. The method employs a conventional Pt/Rh catalyst on a ceramic honeycomb. Reactions proceed at moderate temperatures in the simultaneous presence of oxygen and a reductant (mixed redox conditions) to minimize catalyst(More)
Cavitation clusters and streamers are characterised in lipid materials (specifically sunflower oil) and compared to water systems. The lipid systems, which are important in food processing, are studied with high-speed camera imaging, laser scattering and pressure measurements. In these oils, clusters formed at an aged (roughened) tip of the sound source (a(More)
A new method to detect the uncompensated resistance, the capacitance and the Faradaic current at an electrode exposed to ultrasonic cavitation is presented. The method enables these parameters to be resolved with a 2 microsecond resolution and relies on the detection of the impedance of an electrode recorded as a function of time with a suitable AC(More)
