Next, the nanoparticles were simultaneously attached to two anticancer drugs of doxorubicin (DOX) and methotrexate (MTX) through electrostatic interactions.
After the physicochemical analysis, the investigators found that electrostatic interactions and hydrogen bonds were major forces responsible for the formation of the nanocomplex.
Adsorption of ADBAC on cotton nonwovens can be attributed to electrostatic interactions, dispersion forces and hydrophobic interactions.
The most commonly held theory of planet formation is that minute particles of dust left over after a star forms clump onto each other, first through weak electrostatic interactions and later through gravitational forces.
Scientists think that planets form as dust left over from a star's birth clumps together, first through weak electrostatic interactions and then, as the clumps grow, thanks to gravity.
Topics include:colloid science in food nutrition & the relationship of texture to sensory perception of food materials, it also discusses the exploitation of surfactant mesophases for nanoscale encapsulation, the interfacial rheological properties of mixed interfaces, the dynamics & microrheology of gels & emulsions, the stability of droplets & bubbles, the effects of thermal & mechanical processing on food colloid stability & the electrostatic interactions of proteins with polysaccharides
