A study of the chemical and physical properties of Syncrude's tailings pond, Mildred Lake, 1980
Selected chemical and physical properties of the tailings pond were examined in 1980. The distributions of specific variables with depth and season within the tailings pond were determined (temperature, pH, conductivity, suspended particulate matter, total solids, bitumen, major anions, major...
Accelerated dewatering of oil sands tailings by microbially induced chemical changes
Processing of oil sands ores to extract bitumen generates large volumes of tailings which are deposited into large settling basins, where the solids settle by gravity over 3-4 years to become mature fine tailings (MFT). Methanogenesis has been correlated with increased water recovery from and...
Analysis of Defects in Block Copolymer Thin Films
2015 marks the 50th anniversary of Moore's law, which has described the exponential progress in semiconductor patterning technologies, enabling creation of smaller circuitry features at greater densities. These continued hardware developments, economically mass manufactured, have made possible...
Characterization and Evaluation of Aged 20Cr32Ni1Nb Stainless Steels
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...
Deposition of sulphur and its influence on soils in the AOSERP study area
In the summers of 1975, 1976, and 1977, several field investigations were carried out to determine the amounts of sulphur deposited in rain, in rain washing off trees, and by direct absorption of so2 by soil. The impact of this sulphur deposition on soils in the AOSERP study area was also...
Dicarbenes as bridges in mixed-metal systems
The study of heterobimetallic complexes (having two different metal atoms) involves combining the unique properties of each metal, which can give rise to interesting contrasts in reactivity compared to either metal alone. With two different metals incorporated into one complex, a more diverse...
Differences in the composition of soils under open and canopy conditions at two sites close-in to the great Canadian oil sands operation, Fort McMurray, Alberta
Soils sampled at Sites 1 and 2, 2.3 and 5.3 km south of the Great Canadian Oil Sands (GCOS) plant, Fort McMurray, respectively were found to differ statistically with reference to several macronutrients. Soils under cover of a canopy and those in open areas differed considerably with respect to...
Earth-Abundant Transition Metal Hydride Complexes for Dehydrocoupling and Hydrosilylation Catalysis
The research presented in this thesis details the synthesis of transition metal hydride complexes, with the focus on utilising these complexes for (a) the dehydrocoupling of amine-borane adducts, and (b) the hydrosilylation and hydroboration of unsaturated organic moieties. In both instances,...
Interim report on a soils inventory in the Athabasca oil sands area 1978
Soils of the AOSERP study area are being mapped using the ecological or biophysical approach to land classification. The basic land unit being mapped is the land system which is an area of land through which there is a recurring pattern of landforms, soils, vegetation chronosequences, and water...
