Open Access research which pushes advances in bionanotechnology

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences (SIPBS) , based within the Faculty of Science.

SIPBS is a major research centre in Scotland focusing on 'new medicines', 'better medicines' and 'better use of medicines'. This includes the exploration of nanoparticles and nanomedicines within the wider research agenda of bionanotechnology, in which the tools of nanotechnology are applied to solve biological problems. At SIPBS multidisciplinary approaches are also pursued to improve bioscience understanding of novel therapeutic targets with the aim of developing therapeutic interventions and the investigation, development and manufacture of drug substances and products.

Internal stress-corrosion cracking in anthropogenic CO2 pipelines : is it possible?

Transporting anthropogenic C02 in pipelines, either in dense phase or gaseous phase, is an essential component in the practical realisation of carbon capture and storage (CCS).Whichever phase is considered,the likelihood and severity of internal degradation mechanisms arising from C02 transportation under normal operating conditions and under process upsets needs to be assessed. Whilst internal corrosion has been a focus of research in this area, the risk of stress-corrosion cracking (SCC) has not been extensively investigated.This paper explores the level of risk posed by SCC in C02 pipelines, and the gaps in current knowledge, together with a presentation of test results that investigate the presence of SCC in simulated C02 environments in the presence of impurities.
