Abstract  

The thermal behaviour of human stratum corneum (SC) with various hydration levels was studied using differential thermal analysis DSC within the temperature range of –130 to 120°C. SC containing 20% water, resembling the intact condition, shows thermal transitions at around –20°C (representing water in skin), –10, 40, 70°C (representing skin lipids), 85°C (representing protein-associated lipids) and 100°C (representing skin protein). Dehydration of SC causes the transitions at –20 and 100°C to be invisible. Lipid extraction followed by dehydration eliminates all transitions. Further hydration produces a transition of water at around 0°C with a huge change in enthalpy. The perturbation effects of penetration enhancers fatty acids (FA) and propylene glycol (PG) were studied using DTA on SC after pretreatment with PG alone and FA/PG. The application of PG alone shifted the transitions at 70 and 85°C to lower temperatures. Additionally, the application to dehydrated stratum corneum removes the transitions at –10°C. Saturated fatty acids, e.g. nonanoic and decanoic acids, exert barely noticeable effects on the thermal behaviour of SC suggesting that they easily mix with the skin lipids. Thermal analysis also revealed that the cis-9- and 13-isomers of octadecenoic acid (monounsaturated fatty acids) form a separate domain containing mostly the pure fatty acids within the SC lipids and suppress the lipid transitions at 70/80°C. Polyunsaturated fatty acids linoleic and -linolenic acids — form separate domains but do not completely suppress the SC lipid transitions at 70/80°C as monounsaturated acids do. This study suggests different ways of perturbation by various fatty acids.

Abstract  

The effect of vibration grinding on the DTA curves of montmorillonite isolated from the most important locality of bentonite in the Slovak Republic (Jelšovy potok, Middle Slovakia) was studied in the temperature range 20–1500°C. Interpretation is offered for 6 endothermic and 3 exothermic peaks. vibration grinding modified the course of dehydration of the mineral, suppresses the “dehydroxylation’ peak at 700°C, enables the crystallization of high-temperature quartz, cristobalite and cordierite at lower temperatures in comparison with unground natural montmorillonite. Vibration griding slows down the crystallization of mullite which—unlike quartz, cristobalite and cordierite—does not belong to high-temperature phases of Cheto-montmorillonite. The order in which these high-temperature phases occur is not influenced by vibration grinding.
