Discussion on molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of the asphalt materials
Adv Colloid Interface Sci. 2021 Nov 29;299:102565. doi: 10.1016/j.cis.2021.102565. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe application of asphalt materials in pavement engineering has been increasingly widespread and sophisticated over the past several decades. Variations in the properties of asphalt binder during mixing, transportation, and paving can affect the performance of asphalt pavement. However, the asphalt material is a non-homogeneous and complex organic substance, consisting of various molecules with widely various molecular weights, elemental compositions, and structures. This complexity leads to difficulties for re...

Patterns from dried drops as a characterisation and healthcare diagnosis technique, potential and challenges: A review
The objective of this review is to investigate the use of patterns from dried drops as a characterisation and diagnosis technique. The patterns left behind by dried drops of various complex fluids are categorised. The potential applications of these patterns are presented, focussing primarily on healthcare, where the future impact could be greatest. A discussion on the limitations which must be overcome and prospective works that may be carried out to allow for widespread implementation of this technique is presented in conclusion.PMID:34717206 | DOI:10.1016/j.cis.2021.102546 (Source: Advances in Colloid and Interface Science)

Encapsulation of volatile compounds in liquid media: Fragrances, flavors, and essential oils in commercial formulations
Adv Colloid Interface Sci. 2021 Oct 11;298:102544. doi: 10.1016/j.cis.2021.102544. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe first marketed example of the application of microcapsules dates back to 1957. Since then, microencapsulation techniques and knowledge have progressed in a plethora of technological fields, and efforts have been directed toward the design of progressively more efficient carriers. The protection of payloads from the exposure to unfavorable environments indeed grants enhanced efficacy, safety, and stability of encapsulated species while allowing for a fine tuning of their release profile and longer lasting ben...

Pesticide-loaded colloidal nanodelivery systems; preparation, characterization, and applications
This article shed light on the potential of colloidal delivery systems, particularly controlled releasing profiles of several pesticides with enhanced stability and improved solubility. Colloidal nanodelivery systems, being efficient nanoformulations, have the ability to boost up the pest-control competence for prolonged intervals thru averting the early degradation of active ingredients under severe ecofriendly circumstances. This work is thus aimed to provide critical information on the meaningful role of nanocarriers for loading of pesticides. The smart art of pesticide-loaded nanocarriers can be more fruitful owing to ...
