aerosol

(âr`əsōl, –sŏl): see colloidcolloid
[Gr.,=gluelike], a mixture in which one substance is divided into minute particles (called colloidal particles) and dispersed throughout a second substance. The mixture is also called a colloidal system, colloidal solution, or colloidal dispersion.

aerosol

[′e·rə‚sȯl]
(chemistry)
A suspension of small particles in a gas; the particles may be solid or liquid or a mixture of both; aerosols are formed by the conversion of gases to particles, the disintegration of liquids or solids, or the suspension of powdered material.
(meteorology)
A small droplet or particle suspended in the atmosphere and formed from both natural and anthropogenic sources.

aerosol

a colloidal dispersion of solid or liquid particles in a gas; smoke or fog

Augmenting effectiveness of drug aerosolization even now offers a key dispute in progress of DPI formulations.
Mice were placed in the main chamber and aerosolized first with PBS followed by increasing doses of methacholine (3 and 6[micro]g/mL), 2min for each aerosolization. Readings of breathing parameters were taken for 5 min after each nebulization during which Penh values were determined.
During these times when thousands of bats are in flight, the risk of contaminating water harvesting systems by bat through aerosolization of bat droppings is very high.

Its documented high capture efficiency provides maximal protection from diseases caused by chronic inhalation of nanoparticles present in plume and prevents bacterial aerosolization.
While respiratory spread via aerosolization of infective viral particles has been postulated in the current outbreak, both the basic biology of the virus and the epidemiology of it suggest this is extremely unlikely.
In addition, EBV can be found on the skin of infected patients and may possibly be transmitted through aerosolization of infected bodily fluids.
Because HFVs can spread through aerosolization or direct contact with the body fluids of infected persons, DoD has validated and prioritized combating the threat of HFVs, whether naturally occurring or engineered.
Besides endotracheal tube, administration of surfactant by aerosolization, nebulization and in utero administration are in the experimental phase.
The study presented here aims to evaluate aerosol particle release or aerosolization from two commercial photocatalytic nanocoatings having nanoparticles of Ti[O.sub.2].
Ansys Fluent computational fluid dynamics modeling software was used to design the aerosolization engine and air paths, and some finite element analysis modules packaged with 3D CAD, were carried out in the early days to assist in designing the flexible features of the device.
ANSYS FLUENT Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) modeling software was used to design the aerosolization engine and air paths, and some finite element analysis (FEA) modules packaged with 3D CAD, were carried out early on to assist in designing the flexible features of the device.
