    Water scarcity is mainly caused by overwhelming human consumption and contamination, from production of water-thirsty meats and vegetables, biofuel crop production, industrial uses, and rapid urbanization.2 The scale of ...
  • Life Cycle Costs and Life Cycle Assessment for the Harvesting, Conversion, and the Use of Switchgrass to Produce Electricity 

    Lerkkasemsan, Nuttapol; Achenie, Luke E. K. (Hindawi, 2013-09-23)
    This paper considers both LCA and LCC of the pyrolysis of switchgrass to use as an energy source in a conventional power plant. The process consists of cultivation, harvesting, transportation, storage, pyrolysis, transportation, ...
  • Polar orientation of a pendant anionic chromophore in thick layer-by-layer self-assembled polymeric films 

    Garg, Akhilesh; Davis, Richey M.; Durak, Cemil; Heflin, James R.; Gibson, Harry W. (American Institute of Physics, 2008-09-01)
    Multilayer films with up to 600 bilayers and 740 nm thickness were fabricated using the alternating deposition of poly(allylamine hydrochloride) and poly{1-[p-(3'-carboxy-4'-hydroxyphenylazo)benzenesulfonamido]-1,2-ethand ...
  • A systematic study of the effect of casting solvent on the bulk properties of linear SBS block copolymers 

    Wilkes, Garth L.; Bagrodia, Shiriam; Ophir, Zohar H.; Emerson, John A. (American Institute of Physics, 1978)
    Using a well_characterized series of styrene_butadiene triblock copolymers, a systematic study was carried out to determine the influence of casting solvent, used for film preparation, on the final mechanical properties. ...
