Thermodynamic stability and phase behavior of asphaltenes in oil and of other highly asymmetric mixtures
Asphaltenes are the polydisperse fraction of heavy organics from petroleum whose phase behavior is important in petroleum production and processing because of its potential to precipitate and plug tubulars. The molecular ...
Dissolution rates of surfactants and granules
A quantitative penetration scan method was used to study rates of dissolution of pure, noncrystalline anionic surfactants in water. The displacement of phase boundaries from initial surface of contact was found to be ...
