Application of conformal solution theory to vapor-liquid equilibrium
Several different variation of the binary-K expansion method are presented, based on the conformal solution theory expansion of Gibbs free energy by Byers Brown. First and second order terms are included and several kinds ...
Mechanistic tracer studies of a synthetic mica-montmorillonite: n-butene isomerizations
This thesis examines the catalytic characteristics of a synthetic mica-montmorillonite clay. The double bond isomerizations (including both double bond migration and rotation, but excluding structural rearrangements of the ...
Control of competing chemical reactions
Control of chemical reactions by temperature and by distribution of reactants have been considered separately. Here we analyze the control of a simple system of parallel reactions, which are of different order with respect ...
The oxidation of carbon monoxide on zinc oxide
A study was made of the kinetics of the oxidation of carbon monoxide to form carbon dioxide. The catalyst was high purity zinc oxide. A liquid nitrogen trap was used to remove the product carbon dioxide, thereby virtually ...
An improved theoretical basis for the equation of state of pure fluids
The theoretical perturbation equation of state developed by McQuarrie and Katz is considered. The equation is where n, m, and A are Lennard-Jones parameters; T* is the reduced temperature; n* is a reduced density; x is the ...
The theory and practice of perturbation chromatography applied to the investigation of H2 and CO chemisorption on a Co-Mo-A1 catalyst
The technique of perturbation chromatography using radioactive tracers has been successfully applied to chemisorption studies. Using a flow system with on-line mixing of the pure components, carrier gases of various ...
