Stainless steel is one of the most commonly used materials in most industries. Excellent corrosion resistance of stainless steel is due to the formation of an oxide film on the surface (passive film), which protects the material from continuous corrosion attacks. When subjected to an attack...
Employing a combination of biochemistry and chemometrics, the field of metabolomics has the potential to reveal some very significant insights into biological pathways related to drugs and diseases. This thesis explores this field in its depths; specifically focusing on Nuclear Magnetic Resonance...
In this study, the mineralogy, surface properties, and morphology of fine solids in bitumen froth before and after hydrothermal reactions were investigated. It was observed that clay minerals such as kaolinite and illite did not go through significant mineralogical changes after the reaction....
Industrial chemical plants are typically large-scale systems with a number of processing units or subsystems, which are connected together via material, energy and information flows. The decentralized control frameworks which in general gives sub- optimal control performance is normally used for...
Pyrolysis of asphaltenes in an atmospheric entrained flow reactor: A study on gasification reactivity and properties of charsDownload
Solvent deasphalting, followed by asphaltenes gasification, has been recommended as a favorable alternative to coker based upgrading processes. However, very limited work has been carried out on pyrolysis and gasification of asphaltenes, at entrained flow conditions. The present work aims at...
In the oil sands extraction process, bitumen (crude oil) is separated from the sands in the Primary Separation Vessel (PSV) through a water-based gravity separation process. The interface between froth (crude oil) and middlings (water and sand) is the most important control variable in the PSV...
The nature and structure of asphaltene nanoaggregates are frequently the subject of debate and speculation in the literature. The continental asphaltene nano-aggregate model, characterized by the presence of alkyl chains on their surface, and the archipelago nano-aggregate model, characterized...
Synthetic zeolitic membranes have received much research attention over the past several decades but few studies have examined the potential application of natural zeolites for membrane separations. In this study two separate high density natural zeolite deposits were identified, characterized...
Protein silencing by small interfering RNA (siRNA) is a promising treatment strategy for cancer as over-expression of proteins is largely responsible for cancer cells’ infinite proliferation, evasion of cell death and multi-drug resistance. However, siRNAs require a carrier as their biological...
