      The unique physicochemical properties of the zein protein have led to a wide variety of applications in different industries, especially in the fields of food and biomedicine. The investigation of zein-based delivery systems is of particular interest for hydrophobic drugs and nutrients. In their review, Yangchao Luo and Qin Wang summarize the technological strategies of fabrication techniques for zein-based micro- and nano-particles and their delivery applications. Given the fast-growing field of zein-based delivery systems, they anticipate that the development of advanced zein-based micro- and nano-structured delivery systems will expand to new applications.

      In the oil and gas industries, hydraulic fracturing is a commonly used technique to stimulate hydrocarbon production by creating a network of highly conductive fractures in the area surrounding a wellbore. Recent advances in fracturing technologies, such as multistage fracturing in horizontal wells, are responsible for the latest hydrocarbon production boom in the US. Constraints on local water availability and the potential for damage to formations have led the industry to develop other types of fracturing fluids, such as viscoelastic surfactants and energized fluids. In their review, Reza Barati and Jenn-Tai Liang discuss traditional viscous fluids used in conventional hydraulic fracturing operations, along with the new family of fluids being developed for both traditional and unconventional reservoirs.
