Bilayer Approaches for Nanoparticle Phase Transfer
Nanoparticles (NPs) are often synthesized in organic solvents due to advantages of superior size and shape control obtainable in a non-polar environment. However, many applications featuring NPs require them to be in aqueous ...
Study of Foam Mobility Control in Surfactant Enhanced Oil Recovery Processes in One-Dimensional, Heterogeneous Two-Dimensional, and Micro Model Systems
The focus of this thesis was conducting experiments which would help in understanding mechanisms and in design of surfactant enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes in various scenarios close to reservoir conditions such as ...
Synthesis mechanism, phase transfer and optical tracking of iron oxide nanoparticles
High temperature synthesis of nanocrystals in non-polar solvents typically produces materials with narrow size distribution and high yields. However, the mechanism leading to the preservation of monodispersity on depletion ...
Structure, wettability, and barrier properties of self-assembled monolayers on metallic surfaces
Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) offer a convenient approach for fabricating molecularly tailored interfaces with well-defined compositions, structures, and thicknesses. SAMs have been suggested for use as corrosion barriers, ...
Steady state distillation calculations: An investigation of computer techniques and an examination of results
This work has been divided into two parts. The first is concerned with methods of computation suitable for use with digital computers for distillation problems with one feed and two product streams. Two methods were ...
Vapor-liquid equilibria in the system hydrogen-nitrogen-carbon monoxide
Vapor-liquid equilibrium compositions for the system hydrogen-nitrogen-carbon monoxide were determined at -310°F, and -280°F and -240°F from 300 psig to the critical. PVT data for hydrogen were fitted to the ...
Effects of the decay of sulfur-35 on some electrical properties of cadmium sulfide semiconducting films
The vacuum behavior of radioactive and non-radioactive semiconducting films of CdS has been studied as a function of time in order to determine the effect of radioactive doping. Radioactive films containing S35 were made ...
Low temperature vapor-liquid equilibrium in light hydrocarbon mixtures: Methane-ethane-propane system
Experimental equilibrium data have been determined for 175 mixtures of methane, ethane, and propane. The investigation included temperatures from 50°F to -200°F and pressures up to the critical. A vapor recycle ...
A study of alumina silicon fluoride combinations as hydrocarbon conversion catalysts
The purpose of this work was to study the influence of certain variables in the preparation of an alumina-silicon-fluoride complex on its behavior as a cracking catalyst.
