Functionalized 2D Nano Materials for Selective Separation and Related Interfacial Interaction MechanismsDownload
The functionalized 2D nanomaterials have attracted increasing attention due to their promising selective interfacial separation performance, including oil-water separation, desalination, ion extraction, wastewater treatment and ionic sieving. To help understand the separation performance or...
Naphtha that consists of low molecular weight aliphatic and aromatics and other low molecular weight iso-paraffins and naphthenes is used as a diluent in processing of bitumen from oil sands. During oil sands processing, almost all of the naphtha is recovered. However, a small fraction, viz....
Bacteriophages as antimicrobial agents against bacterial contaminants in yeast fermentation processesDownload
Bacterial contaminants are ubiquitous in yeast fermentation processes for biofuel production. In general, they compete with yeasts for nutrients, reducing overall production yield. The present project investigates the application of bacteriophages (phages), viruses infecting and killing...
This study is part of a larger study designed to help a consortium of pipeline operators replace current (very expensive) approaches to managing stress corrosion cracking (SCC) concerns in near-neutral pH (NNPH) environments with mathematical models that predict SCC growth rates. This could...
As one of the most critical steps to recover valuable particles from a slurry using flotation, knowledge of the drainage of the thin liquid film between an air bubble and a solid surface is required. The main focus of this thesis is to develop and use an integrated thin film drainage appratus...
Uncertainty is pervasive in various process operations problems. Its appearance spans from the detailed process description of multi-site manufacturing. In practical applications, there is a need for making optimal and reliable decisions in the presence of uncertainties. Asking for constraint...
Solvent extraction of coal: Influence of solvent chemical structure on extraction yield and product compositionDownload
In recent years the need for new carbon sources to supplement crude oil for the production of fuels and chemicals, again focused on coal as suitable candidate. Old and new technologies are being developed to convert coal in valuable products. An old technology such as solvent extraction of coal...
Permanent wafer bonding technology is a very important process for different types of applications such as MEMS (microelectromechanical systems), LED (light-emitting diode) devices, advanced packaging, 3D stack and SOI (silicon on isolator) substrate applications. Depending on the type of...
In this research, flocculation of fractionated asphaltenes was studied using dynamic light scattering (DLS). Three asphaltene fractions were obtained based on its adsorption characteristics onto calcium carbonate. The DLS results showed that the irreversibly-adsorbed asphaltenes (Irr-Ads),...
Data reconciliation and gross error detection are traditional methods toward detecting mass balance inconsistency within process instrument data. These methods use a static approach for statistical evaluation. This thesis is concerned with using an alternative statistical approach (Bayesian...
