Nanocomposites that will be discussed in this paper were prepared with two different types of epoxy resin (Nan Ya Epoxy Resins): (i) one epoxy resin, NPEF-164X is a diluted epoxy resin based on Bisphenol-A/Bisphenol-F diglycidyl ethers mixed with C12-C14 alkyl glycidyl ether reactive dilutent whose viscosity at cps/ 25[degrees]C is 700-1100 and the other, (ii) NPEK-114L is a diluted epoxy resin based on Bisphenol-A diglycidyl ether mixed with C12-C14 alkyl glycidyl ether with cps/ 25[degrees]C viscosity of 550-750.
A list of common additives and excipients (inert substances added as a dilutent or vehicle for a drug) that may give rise to skin irritation or allergy is given in the BNF (12) and MIMS has a free online resource outlining additives contained in all the commonly used emollients, thus allowing patients with known sensitivities to avoid specific products.
This new liquid formulation removes the step of reconstituting lyophilized powder with sterile water prior to adding the medicine to the dilutent and administering to a patient, said the company.
Sterile water was used as the negative control as this was the dilutent for the E.
90) Because this mixing process is relatively complex, requiring the technician to delicately balance the weight of the chemical with the volume of the dilutent, (91) allowing an untrained person to carry it out greatly increases the likelihood that the drug will be improperly mixed, and ultimately, that an insufficient dose of anesthetic will be delivered to the vein.
