Controlled release of flavour-, aroma- and pharmaceutical substances - development and technical verification of a new concept

An idea related to controlled release of flavouring agents, aromas or pharmaceutical actives have been developed at YKI. The aim of the diploma work is to evaluate the concept in detail laboratory scale, and demonstrate how well it may work in different applications.

The work will start with selection of suitable model systems for demonstration of the concept in action, and selection of methods for evaluation of release profiles.

The analysis methods will thereafter be set-up and tested, and the selected model systems will be evaluated to determine the kinetics of the release profile, and how it can be controlled.

If promising results are obtained, the results may be protected by a YKI patent before presentation of the results. As confidential information will be handled in the project, you will have to sign the general secrecy agreement which all employees at YKI have signed.

The applicant should have good skills in general chemistry (an interest in organic chemistry/surface chemistry/chemical kinetics is very positive!), be very familiar with chemical laboratory work, and have a genuine interest in novel applied chemical concepts, aimed at practical use in industrial applications.

An award of 20 000 SEK (before tax) will be given after the work has been completed and accepted by the examiner.
