  1. 1. Evaluation of joint formation on cellulosic surfaces

    University essay from KTH/Materialvetenskap

    Author : Erika Fivaz; [2020]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Environmental issues are more and more present in our societies. Pollution engendered by plastic waste have drastically increased these past decades, causing several threats to the ecosystem. Therefore, the need of new biodegradable plastics to replace the actual petroleum-based ones is urgent. READ MORE

  2. 2. Post-processing for roughness reduction of additive manufactured polyamide 12 using a fully automated chemical vapor technique - The effect on micro and macrolevel

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Ingrid Johansson; [2020]
    Keywords : Chemical post-processing; PostPro3D; selective laser sintering; surface roughness; polyamide 12; Kemisk efterbehandling; PostPro3D; selektiv lasersintring; ytojämnhet; polyamid 12;

    Abstract : Additive manufacturing has increased in popularity in recent years partly due to the possibilities of producing complex geometries in a rapid manner. Selective laser sintering (SLS) is a type of additive manufacturing technique that utilizes polymer powder and a layer-by-layer technique to build up the desired geometry. READ MORE

  3. 3. The role of pectin medifications during host invasion and infection by the parasitic plant Phtheirospermum japonicum

    University essay from SLU/Dept. Of Plant Biology

    Author : Martina Leso; [2020]
    Keywords : Hausrorium; Phtheirospermum japonicum; Pectin modification; PME; PMEI; EMS-screen;

    Abstract : Parasitic plants are organisms that feed on other plants, often distantly related to them evolutionarily. This feeding strategy causes them to be a major threat to agriculture, negatively affecting the yields of many staple crops like sorghum and rice. READ MORE

  4. 4. Production and validation of anti-HCV antibodies for viral neutralization

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Megan Olga García Mark; [2020]
    Keywords : Cloning; antibody; infection; HCV; IgG production; molecular biology; cell factory; plasmid design; immunology;

    Abstract : Hepatitis-C Virus (HCV) remains the leading cause of liver transplant in the US and the UK, and the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 71 million people are infected worldwide. A vaccine would drastically impact the healthcare-associated burdens that HCV causes globally. READ MORE

  5. 5. Material Transfer Mechanisms during Interaction of Aluminium Alloy and Tool Steel at Elevated Temperatures

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Gabriel Macêdo; [2020]
    Keywords : material transfer mechanisms; high temperature tribology; hot metal forming tribology; hot-stamping of aluminium alloys; aluminium alloys;

    Abstract : Hot stamping of aluminium alloys allows for increased formability, decreased springback and the possibility of integrating age-hardening heat treatments into the process. However, it can be challenging due to the occurrence of material transfer of aluminium onto the tool, as aluminium is prone to adhesion even at low temperatures. READ MORE
