Apr 15 2013Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles (NPs) are manufactured worldwide in large quantities for use in a wide range of applications TiO2 NPs possess different physicochemical properties compared to their fine particle (FP) analogs which might alter their bioactivity Most of the literature cited here has focused on the respiratory system showing the importance of inhalation as the primary The surface area to volume ratio is a way of expressing the relationship between these parameters as an organism's size changes Importance: Changes in the surface area to volume ratio have important implications for limits or constraints on organism size and help explain some of the modifications seen in larger-bodied organisms

surface tension

Surface tension may be expressed therefore in units of energy per unit area (square metres) Water has a surface tension of 0 07275 joule per square metre at 20 C (68 F) In comparison organic liquids such as benzene and alcohols have lower surface tensions whereas mercury has a higher surface

Physicochemical regulation of biofilm formation

The process of biofilm formation is characterized by five stages (1) Cells attach to surfaces reversibly In this step bacteria use a variety of extracellular organelles and proteins for sensing and attaching to surfaces including flagella pili fimbriae curli fibers and outer membrane proteins 8 9 (Figure 1) Cells attach to substrates that are immersed in or are in contact with fluids

The rapid charging is related to the nanoballs high surface area where electrons are transmitted to the surface of the cathode at a higher rate In 2012 researchers at A123 Systems developed a battery that operates in extreme temperatures without the need for thermal management material It went through 2 000 full charge-discharge cycles at 45

Control over surface chemistry has been used to reduce cell attachment including the development of "dynamic" surfaces that degrade or reorganize in response to temperature and other environmental conditions and shed adsorbed bacteria into the bulk fluid 15 Surface structuring has also been explored by engineering high-aspect ratio
