Selective hydrogenation of 1,3-butadiene in 1-butene over alumina supported palladium and palladium/copper catalysts
Copper addition to palladium increases both activity and selectivity in the selective hydrogenation of 1,3-butadiene to n-butenes. The bimetal catalyst (Cu/Pd:2/1(atomic)) hydrogenates the diene to virtually 100% conversion ...
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 ...
Associating fluids near a hard planar wall
The properties of fluids near a fluid-solid interface are important in many processes, such as: wettability as related to oil recovery and environmental cleanup, biochemical separation, bio-compatibility of materials, ...
Spin lattice relaxation in pure and mixed alkanes and their correlation with thermodynamic and macroscopic transport properties
Spin-lattice, T$\sb1$, and spin-spin, T$\sb2$, relaxation times of the alkanes from n-pentane to n-hexadecane were measured at 25$\sp\circ$C. The T$\sb1$ values agree well with those of previous investigators. The values ...
Thermodynamic properties of hydrocarbons and fluorocarbons using the SAFT equation of state
The necessary analytical derivatives of SAFT have been taken and a computer code has been developed to calculate phase equilibria and other thermodynamic properties such as enthalpy, entropy, heat capacity, velocity of ...
Thermophysical property measurements at high temperatures for liquid metal alloys and gadolinium oxide-doped uranium dioxide samples
New techniques for obtaining various thermophysical properties, i.e., densities and incremental enthalpies of selected materials at high temperatures have been developed with emphasis on the utilization of levitation ...
