Advanced Synthesis Techniques and Characterization of Functional Semiconductor Nanomaterials
Semiconductor materials are used in several modern day applications ranging from photovoltaic devices to environmental remediation. The electronic, optical, catalytic and physical properties of semiconductor nanomaterials ...
Solution processing of boron nitride nanotubes and Bending behavior of carbon nanotube fibers
Boron Nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) are allotropes of boron nitride (BN). Unlike carbon nanotubes (CNTs), BNNTs have a high band-gap and stronger chemical resistance making them stable to temperatures around 1000 °C. Additionally, ...
A Systematic Study of Short and Long Range Interactions in Associating Fluids Using Molecular Theory
Parameters needed for the Statistical Associating Fluid Theory (SAFT) equation of state are usually fit to pure component saturated liquid density and vapor pressure. In this thesis, other sources of information such as ...
Thermodynamic Modeling and Molecular Simulation of Amphiphilic Systems
Interfacial phenomena are of vital importance to industrial and commercial applications from enhanced oil recovery to personal care products. To optimize interfacial processes, amphiphiles are usually involved, and, unlike ...
The Behavior of Surfactants in Water / Oil System by Dissipative Particle Dynamics
Dissipative Particle Dynamics is a mesoscale simulation model that is widely used in simulation of complex fluids. This method simulates the fluid in the scales between microscopic and macroscopic scales. The scope of this ...
Foam rheology of zwitterionic anionic blends in porous media
Blending of certain types of surfactants is known to promote synergism as studied by bulk measurements. This study analyzes if such synergistic interactions are beneficial for foam rheology in porous media. Foam experiments ...
