Alkaline Surfactant Polymer enhanced oil recovery process
This thesis improves the understanding of the Alkaline Surfactant Polymer (ASP) enhanced oil recovery process in order to optimize the ASP operational strategy. The conventional oil recovery methods leave large amounts of ...
Design of artificial genetic networks to regulate the biosynthesis of polyhydroxyalkanoate copolymers with desirable structures
The design of artificial genetic networks constitutes a powerful tool to regulate cellular physiology. Simple regulatory structures comprised of a few interacting genes can be assembled to engineer desirable phenotypes and ...
Modeling of asphaltene precipitation and deposition tendency using the PC-SAFT equation of state
Asphaltene precipitation and deposition can occur at different stages during petroleum production causing reservoir formation damage and plugging of pipeline and production equipment. Even though asphaltene deposition is ...
Engineering nanoparticle-assembled capsules for near-infrared phototherapy
Phototherapy is a non-intensive, selective, and simple method for treating diseases such as cancer. It has fewer side effects and can be more affordable than traditional treatments. There is a great interest in near-infrared ...
