Not just for wetting your whistle: 6 Survival uses of alcohol

(Natural News) Booze is one of the most essential things preppers need for any survival scenario, but not in the way you may think. Drinking alcohol is the last thing you should be doing in emergency situations. To get a clearer idea on how to use this substance in survival situations, here is an explanation...

We report here a rapid, cost-effective, ex-situ method to study the wettability of GDLs by process fluids. A commercial Teflon® treated carbon cloth featuring a single microporous layer was used, because carbon cloths are anticipated to outperform carbon paper type GDLs at high humidity and high current density. The GDL structure was characterized by SEM, 3D microCT reconstruction, and surface profilometry. Wettability by aqueous alcohol mixtures was investigated by contact angle measurement and infrared thermography. Ethanol containing fuel offered better spreading characteristics than methanol, especially on the micr...

Drunk sex was the only kind I could have with a new guy – until I quit drinking and focussed on sexual satisfactionI never expected I ’d be proud of myself for having a one-night stand. Before I quit drinking, I’d always say I “loved dating”. Truthfully, I loved drinking and drunk sex was often the logical conclusion of the evening. I’d convince myself that having four or five drinks on a Wednesday and going home with a guy I just met was an “investment” in trying to get into a relationship, because nothing screams girlfriend-material like abruptly leaving at 2am to avoid wet...

Publication date: Available online 11 November 2019Source: Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering AspectsAuthor(s): Ning Feng, Ting Zhao, Yonghong Zhao, Peng Song, Guojin Li, Guangliang ZhangAbstractAliphatic alcohol polyoxyethylene ether phosphate (AEP) is an excellent surfactant, and thus the relationship between the ethylene oxide addition number of AEP and properties of AEP should be systematically described to improve the application efficiency of this surfactant. In this paper, the static surface tension, dynamic surface tension and wetting properties of AEP with different ethylene oxide (EO) additi...

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2019Source: Journal of Molecular LiquidsAuthor(s): Yichao Shen, Yong Jin, Shuangquan Lai, Liangjie Shi, Weining Du, Rong ZhouAbstractDeveloping suitable alternatives to long fluoroalkyl chain surfactants has drawn considerable attention on account of the concerns over the environmental safety and human health. However, low surface activity, poor water solubility and complex preparation process of most currently reported alternatives restrict their widespread applications. Herein, a series of nonionic urethane fluorinated surfactants (FmEGnFm) were synthesized by one-pot method ...

Abstract Universal nanocrystal formulation which can be applied to water-insoluble compounds was proposed and the criteria of its physicochemical properties as an active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) were investigated. Nanocrystal suspension was prepared by a wet-beads milling method. An acceptable Critical Quality Attributes (CQA) of nanocrystal suspension was defined by Z-average less than 500 nm and Polydispersity index (PDI) less than 0.3. Screening studies of dispersing and wetting agents were conducted using three model compounds in different pKa, melting points, etc., to find universal nanocrystal...

Here we prepare the protein solution directly from alive silkworms instead of extracting proteins from silkworm silk. The protein solution and the polyvinyl alcohol solution are mixed in different weight ratios to produce silkworm-based silk fibers, which have many special properties li...

Distillation of Alcohol/Water Solution in Hybrid Metal ‐organic Framework Hollow Fibers AbstractDistillation with multitudinous structured packings has shown great potential for chemical separation. However, there still remains a big challenge to prepare porous structured packings with more productive separation and better mass transfer efficiency due to materials limitations. Metal –organic framework (MOF) membranes have commendable porous structures that provide enough pathways for fast mass transport and superhydrophobic character for efficient separation. Herein, novel MOFs‐based hollow fiber structured packi...

Conclusion: The presence of NE in a third of the patients who developed over time OAB and the earlier onset of OAB for these patients suggests a causal physiopathological relationship between NE and OAB. The preponderance of urban patients confirms the existence of acquired urban triggering factors of OAB (nutritious, social, or professional). PMID: 31203588 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
