    Control over the wettability of reservoir rocks is of crucial importance for enhancing oil and gas recovery. In order to develop chemicals for controlling the wettability of reservoir rocks, we present a study of functionalized silica nanoparticles as candidates for wettability alteration and improved gas recovery applications. In this paper, properties of fluorinated silica nanoparticles were investigated in water or decane-loaded pores of mineral silica using molecular dynamics simulation. Trifluoromethyl groups as water and oil repellents were placed on the nanoparticles. Simulating a pore in the presence of trapped water or decane molecules leads to liquid bridging for both of the...

    The current work deals with the catalytic application of bis(1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium) tungstate ([BMIm]2WO4) for green synthesize of glutaric acid (GA) through oxidative cleavage of cyclopentene. In this method, 30% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) was used as oxidant with water as the sole by-product of the reaction. Compared to the current synthetic procedures, this protocol is significantly improved in the environmental point of view. Moreover, the effect of the various parameters was investigated on the reaction efficiency. It was found that high yield of GA could obtain without using special methodologies or precautions. The catalytic system is reusable for several times  

    Increase in the β-sheet character of an amyloidogenic peptide upon adsorption onto gold and silver surfaces

    , Article ChemPhysChem ; Volume 18, Issue 5 , 2017 , Pages 526-536 ; 14394235 (ISSN) Soltani, N ; Gholami, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology

    Fibrillation of amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide is the hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. Given that interactions at the bio–nano interface affect the fibrillation tendency of this peptide, an understanding of the interactions at Aβ peptide–inorganic surfaces on the microscopic level can help to determine the possible neurotoxicity of nanoparticles. Here, the interactions between a fibril-forming peptide, Aβ25–35, and (111) and (100) facets of gold and silver surfaces have been studied by conducting atomistic molecular dynamics simulations. The obtained results indicate that the adsorption onto gold and silver surfaces force the peptide into the β-sheet-rich conformations, which is prone to...

    Gelatin-based functional films were prepared by the addition of grapefruit seed extract (GSE, 5 wt% based on gelatin) and various amounts of TiO2 (0.5, 1.0, 3.0, and 5.0 wt% based on gelatin). TiO2 was evenly dispersed in the gelatin film, but the film surface roughness was increased as the concentration of TiO2 increased. The mechanical strength and water contact angle (WCA) of the composite film were the highest, while the water vapor permeability (WVP) was the lowest when 0.5 wt% TiO2 was used. The addition of GSE slightly reduced the UV light transmittance, but the addition of TiO2 almost completely prevented the UV light transmission. The addition of GSE and TiO2 did not significantly...

    Focused on the assessment of the diphenhydramine hydrochloride (DPH) capabilities as an alternative to conventional and harmful industrial corrosion inhibitors, electrochemical techniques were employed. The optimum concentration of 1000 ppm was determined by molecular simulation and validated through electrochemical experiments. The results acquired from the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) study showed that DPH at a concentration of 1000 ppm has a corrosion efficiency of 91.43% after 6 h immersion. The DPH molecules' orientation on the surface was assessed based on EIS predicting horizontal adsorption on the surface. Molecular simulations were done to explore the adsorption...

    Understanding the chemistry of sandstone acidizing is important in designing an effective treatment for subsurface rock formations. The complex chemistry of sandstone systems leads to the precipitation of minerals that contribute to formation damage. Thus, monitoring the concentration and location of precipitates is necessary. In this work, a continuum-scale sequential implicit LEA/PLEA reactive transport model is developed and programmed through coupling OpenFOAM and Reaktoro to improve the model prediction. The proposed LEA/PLEA models are compared for core acidizing simulations at relatively high and low Damköhler numbers. We found that the common assumption of kinetically-controlled flow... 

    Design and Synthesis of Novel Coumarin Derivatives as Quorum Sensing Inhibitors & Performing Click Chemistry Involving Lysozyme Protein and a Novel Synthetic Fluorecent Compound

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mansoori, Sirwan (Author) ; Kalhor, Hamid Reza (Supervisor)
    Quorum Sensing is a cell-to-cell communication pr°Cess depending on cell concentration. Communication among bacterial cells °Ccurs through small molecular signals called autoinducers. The consequences of quorum sensing include the activation of pathogenic properties and activation of the gene for biofilm formation. Biofilms are aggregations of bacteria that adhere to surfaces through extracellular polymeric substances. Bacteria in the biofilm phase are much more resistant to antimicrobial agents than their free-swimming counterparts (i.e. the bacteria in planktonic form). In this study, first a series of coumarin derivatives were synthesized; but due to low solubility of the synthesized...
