  1. 1. Experimental investigation of the flowability of oxygen carriers for Chemical-Looping Combustion

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för energi och miljö

    Author : Tobias Herrmann; [2015]
    Keywords : Chemical-Looping Combustion; Flowability; Oxygen carrier; Funnel flow;

    Abstract : questrationin an innovative way. Air and fuel are separately handled in two fluidizedbed reactors. Interconnection and reaction are achieved by circulating an oxygencarrier between both reactors. The oxygen carrier is a crucial component, as it isresponsible for the performance of the overall process. READ MORE

  2. 2. Building predictive unbound brain-to-plasma concentration ratio (Kp,uu,brain) models

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i bioinformatik

    Author : Srinidhi Varadharajan; [2014]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Abstract The blood-brain barrier (BBB) constitutes a dynamic membrane primarily evolved to protect the brain from exposure to harmful xenobiotics. The distribution of synthesized drugs across the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is a vital parameter to consider in drug discovery projects involving a central nervous system (CNS) target, since the molecules should be capable of crossing the major hurdle, BBB.

  3. 3. Growth Patterns of Start-Up Firms - A Cohort Study with a Quantile Regression Approach

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för nationalekonomi

    Author : Sebastian Krakowski; [2014]
    Keywords : Firm Growth Rates; Firm Growth Distributions; Monte Carlo Simulation; Quantile Regression;

    Abstract : Using panel data for the cohort of Swedish limited companies established in 1997, this study analyzes the patterns and distributions of the firms' growth rates. After characterizing the growth patterns, we test the hypothesis that firm growth is essentially stochastic; a theory originating from Gibrat (1931). READ MORE

  4. 4. Molecular topology, a novel descriptor for compound quality assessment

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i bioinformatik

    Author : Rurika Oka; [2012]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Abstract The pharmaceutical industry is currently facing a high clinical attrition rate. In order to prevent the late-stage clinical failure, many investigations on compound quality and drug-likeness of compounds have been carried out. It has been widely accepted that molecular size and lipophilicity plays an important role in compound quality. READ MORE
