Effect of Solvent on the Optimal Thermodynamic Conditions of Ternary System (CO2, Alcohol, Ampicillin) in GAS Process

M. Rahmanzadeh derisi; N. Esfandiari

Volume 17, Issue 1 , March 2020, Pages 37-46


  The gas antisolvent (GAS) process has been employed for pharmaceutical micronization. Ampicillin was dissolved in organic solvent and carbon dioxide as an antisolvent was injected into this solution, consequently, volume expansion and sharp reduction in liquid solvent power were shown. The particles ...  Read More

The Influences of the Nanoparticles Related Parameters on the Tensile Strength of Polymer Nanocomposites

E. Sharifzadeh; E. Tohfegar; M. Safajou Jahankhanemlou

Volume 17, Issue 1 , March 2020, Pages 65-78


  In this study, a comprehensive model was proposed in order to predict the tensile strength of nanocomposites considering the effects of the random orientation of nanoparticles, interphase properties and also the inevitable aggregation/agglomeration phenomenon. The model was structured based on the nanoparticle ...  Read More

Fractional Calculus Method Applied To the Apple Rings Candying in Osmotic Drying Process

A. Etemadi; R. Alizadeh; M. Sirousazar

Volume 17, Issue 1 , March 2020, Pages 90-102


  Water and solid effective diffusivities and shrinkage were correlated for finite hollow cylinder-shaped apple samples during the candying operation in the osmotic solution. Experiments were conducted in the sucrose solution as an osmotic agent at different temperatures (i.e., 40, 50, and 60 °C) and ...  Read More
