Green processes based on SC-CO2: application to materials of biomedical interest
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2015-05-25)
This research is focused on the production of structures of biomedical interest using supercritical assisted processes: Supercritical freeze extraction, Supercritical gel drying and Supercritical phase separation. These ...
Nanostructured vectors for the transport of active molecules through biological membranes for pharmaceutical and nutraceutical applications
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2017-04-27)
Purpose of the PhD thesis was to develop dedicated lipid nanostructured vectors with tailored features (in terms of size, surface charge, load capability, stimuli responsive ability and stability) through the design of ...
Process optimization of a lignocellulosic multi-product biorefinery
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2016-05-31)
A methodology to reduce the complexity of the process optimization was applied to multiproduct biorefinery fed by lignocellulosic biomass. A process superstructure was built to consider alternative process pathways to ...
Continuous supercritical emulsion extraction: process characterization and optimization of operative conditions to produce biopolymer microspheres
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2012-07-04)
Controlled release systems for therapeutic drugs have received extensive attention in recent years, due to their great clinical potential. Biodegradable microspheres are well-recognized systems to control the release rate ...
Nanoencapsulation of bioactive compounds for food applications
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2012-06-19)
The increase in dietary-intake-related illnesses, such as obesity, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, diabetes and cancer, have made in recent years the development of health-and-wellness promoting foods a priority of ...
The effect of temperature on flow properties of powders
(Universita degli studi di Salerno, 2012-06-18)
Changes of cohesive flow properties of powders at high temperature are observed in many industrial process units, such as fluidized bed reactors, granulators and dryers. Many authors investigated the behaviour of powders ...
