Seeded Granulation ABSTRACT Seeded granulation was firstly introduced by Rahmanian et al. (2011) and is a process of making granules with uniform properties and structure. This occurs when small particles form around a larger core particle and forms a core-shell (seed) structure. The process has applications in the pharmaceutical industry as it allows for even drug distribution through the granules as a seeded granule should be covered in one full layer of the fine particles. This presentation...

ABSTRACT Hybrid perovskites of the formula A2MX4, A: ammonium substituted organic cation, M: a divalent metal ion and X: a halogen (Cl, Br, I) have attracted considerable attention recently. Their applications include lead-free perovskite solar cell, optoelectronic, exitonic and self-assembly quantum well. The properties of these hybrid perovskites OIHs are functions of A, M and X and there are possibilities to tailor the structure, physical and chemical properties according to the technologica...

Scaling up the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Markets Worldwide, air travel produced 781 million tonnes of CO2 from approximately 250 million tonnes of kerosene in 2015. This is approximately 2% of human produced CO2 and 12% of global transport emissions. Global passenger‐kilometres increase by 4‐5% annually, and historic improvements in aircraft fuel efficiency, operations and infrastructure contributed so far to a combined 1.5% emission reduction per year. As an island, Ireland depends st...
