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$\sb3$ ...
Molecular simulation and theory of polyatomic associating fluids
In this thesis the thermodynamic properties of model polyatomic molecules with association interactions was studied using molecular simulation and theory. The Metropolis Monte Carlo technique was used to perform simulations ...
