Instead, most are focused on thermolytic conversion of biomass into energy which in end returns C[O.sub.2] to the atmosphere.
This polymer/clay nanocomposite hydrogel was sustained and represented as a "nanoclay gel." The property of the hydrogel that was selected to maintain the swollen state of the clay/PEG intercalation was a thermolytic hydrogel type with a physical gelation (no rigid network formation).
Three different methods of synthesizing nanoparticles are physical (microwave irradiation, sonochemical, ultraviolet radiation, laser ablation, thermal decomposition (thermolytic), photochemical, or radical induced), chemical (supercritical fluid, coprecipitation, use of inorganic matrix as support, and organic solvents), and biological (use of algae, bacteria, fungi, or plants) [10-13, 24].
The NBS afforded mono bromo as well as dibromo product in almost 1: 1 both under photochemical and thermolytic conditions.
Its potential future uses include chemical looping combustion, photolytic and thermolytic water splitting for hydrogen production and environmental chemistry [26,27].
There are several physical methods (ion sputtering, laser ablation, gas condensation, pyrolysis, etc.) and chemical methods (solvothermal, photochemical, electrochemical, thermolytic, sol-gel, etc.) to synthesize nanocrystalline thin film and to control its crystal size [11].
Therefore, the next step was the design of an appropriate force degradation study (stress testing) on the basis of degradation pathways of drug products; discernment of degradation products in formulations that are related to drug substances versus those that are related to nondrug substances (e.g., excipients); structure elucidation of degradation products; determination of the intrinsic stability of a drug substance molecule in solution and solid state; and revelation of the thermolytic degradation mechanism of the drug product [18, 19].
(5) It is also established that the ellagitannin concentration in wine tends to decrease with the toasting temperature, as thermolytic degradation occurs during the toasting process and are converted into less astringent products.
