Design, Synthesis, Characterization of a new pH-Responsive Copolymer and its Application in Oil Sands Tailings TreatmentDownload
This research aims at treating mature fine tailings (MFT) with a novel pH-responsive copolymer poly (N,N-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate-co-acrylamide-co-acrylic acid) p(DMAEMA-co-AM-co-AA). Compared with conventional polyacrylamide (PAM), the conformation and property of this novel copolymer can...
High Chromium Cast Irons (HCCIs) are widely used in mineral processing, slurry pumping and manufacturing processes, where high resistance to erosion and synergetic erosion-corrosion is required. The excellent performance of HCCIs results from their microstructure, which consists of hard carbides...
In the Sudbury Basin, froth flotation is commonly used to recover Pentlandite (Pn), and Chalcopyrite (Cp), while rejecting Pyrrhotite (Po), and other gangue minerals typically found in the region. However, as the sulfide minerals flow through the plant the surfaces continually oxidize, allowing...
Unconventional oil reserves are taking an increasing importance globally due to the decrease of conventional sources of hydrocarbons. Oil sands industry plays an important role in the production of unconventional bitumen, through proven technologies such as surface mining and in situ extraction...
Coke formation is a major problem in the petroleum industry because of its effect on liquid yield, catalyst deactivation, and fouling of reactor internals and downstream vessels. Carbonaceous mesophase is a liquid crystalline phase which forms during cracking of heavy oil, as a subset of coke. A...
The growing interest in the oilsands bitumen reserves, a large portion of which is unattainable by current industrial processes, has generated a need for an improved process for oilsands extracting and upgrading. The effects of using chabazite as a catalyst for cracking and upgrading of oilsands...
A Combined Computational and Experimental Investigation of Polynucleotide Binding Polymers for Therapeutic ApplicationsDownload
Polynucleotide binding polymers have a wide range of therapeutic applications including delivery systems for therapeutic polynucleotides, and antithrombotic drugs for extracellular nucleic acid-mediated thrombogenic events. This dissertation explores polynucleotide binding polymers in these two...
The Capstone Design Course instructional team was selected to participate in the digital learning initiative at the University of Alberta. The goals of this initiative are to increase student engagement and promote flexible, independent learning. The objectives of the instructional team were to...
Carbon dioxide capture using adsorption based separation processes has shown promise but has not been exploited to full potential to be implemented on a commercial scale. This thesis examines two key stages in the development of adsorption based carbon dioxide capture processes, namely adsorbent...
Energy and utilities costs often represent one of the largest operating costs at manufacturing plants and they are areas where companies can reduce cost if optimal operating strategy is applied for efficient steam distribution and electricity generation. In addition to the financial incentive,...
