Van der Waals model of liquid wetting layers
A phenomenological theory of wetting layer systems based on the van der Waals theory of interfaces is developed. For classical critical exponents the local composition profile and the wetting layer thickness are determined ...
Polymer formation, deactivation, and ethylene selectivity decline in palladium/aluminum oxide catalyzed selective acetylene hydrogenation
The removal of acetylene by selective hydrogenation is a critical step in the purification of ethylene streams for industrial polyethylene production. Hydrogenation of 0.35-1.0% acetylene in ethylene over Pd/Al$\sb2$O$\sb3$ ...
