Other components of less common oilseeds are much more beneficial for health than their unsaturated fats

AoS. Other components of less common oilseeds

Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are thought to be some of the most important nutrients and health promoting constituents, the presence of which is usually insufficient in a daily diet, which in turn is often connected with their

Risk of wildfire at wildland oil and gas facilities

Risk of wildfire at wildland oil & gas facilities. AoS

An ever-increasing exploration and exploitation of oil and gas resources in wildlands along with an anticipated increase in the frequency and severity of wildfires (mostly due to climate change) can increase the risk of fire and explosions

Floating oils can be submerged in water with granular particles as encapsulated oil sacks

Formation of tightly packed encapsulation observed with both medium sand

The particle stabilized liquid interfaces in liquid droplets and encapsulation of liquids with nano particles are used in industrial applications such as ink jet for printing and fertilizers. Applications with much larger drops of hydrophobic liquids ranging

Faceted liquid droplets wag their tails

Nature typically strives to minimize the energy of a system. Making water flow downhill and a stretched rubber band shrink when released are just two examples. A commonly experienced consequence of this universal principle is the spherical

Replacement of saturated with unsaturated fats had no impact on vascular function but beneficial effects on lipid biomarkers and blood pressure

Disease of the heart and blood vessels (referred to as cardiovascular disease (CVD)) is the primary cause of death worldwide. A key public health recommendation for reducing the risk of developing CVD is to lower our intake of

Compounds from Australian Eucalypts: the next wonder-drug for cancer?
