This brief manuscript introduces the subject of thermodynamics and the papers of the special issue on thermodynamic aspects of cryobiology. Thermodynamic terminology is defined for the non-specialist.
The multisolute osmotic virial equation is the only multisolute thermodynamic solution theory that has been derived from first principles and can make predictions of multisolute solution behaviour in the absence of multisolute solution data. Other solution theories either (i) include simplifying...
20Cr-32Ni-1Nb stainless steel alloys are commonly used in hydrogen reformer manifolds for transporting hot hydrogen by-products at 750-950 celcius. After long periods of exposure, embrittling secondary carbides and intermetallic phases can precipitate at the grain boundaries which can drastically...
Tools and Methodologies for The Rapid Determination and Transfer of Thermodynamic Parameters used in the Prediction of Gas Chromatographic and Two Dimensional Comprehensive Gas Chromatographic Retention TimesDownload
Three parameter thermodynamic predictive models have been shown previously to provide superior accuracy in the prediction of gas chromatographic retention times in comparison to other forms of modelling such as retention indices. However, these models suffer from the need for extensive...
The spontaneous assembly of polypeptides through non-covalent interactions at physiological conditions is the main focus of the presented work and will be discussed from two different perspectives: (i) the interaction of peptide chains with themselves leading to formation of higher order...
Investigation of the Adsorption of Model and Oil Sands Process-Affected Water Naphthenic Acids on GraphiteDownload
Naphthenic acids (NAs) are constituents of bitumen in the oil sands deposits in northern Alberta, Canada. The extraction process of bitumen creates an enormous amount of wastewater called oil sands process affected waters (OSPW). This OSPW contains elevated concentrations of NAs, and other...
Fischer—Tropsch gas loops have been in use for nearly a century, producing synthetic fuels and petrochemicals. Yet there still remain many opportunities to expand its uses, update the gas loop with new technology, as well as better understand at a fundamental level the way the products behave....
