A cationic thermal sensitive polymer, poly[N-isopropylacrylamide-co-N-[3-(Dimethylamino)propyl]methacrylamide] (CP) of different molar ratios, known as CP05 and CP10 was synthesized in-house. By doping aluminum hydroxide (Al(OH)3) colloids into CP during the polymerization process, a novel hybrid...
The work presented in this dissertation provides a novel technique of manipulation of colloidal entities during membrane filtration based on an AC electrokinetic phenomenon called dielectrophoresis. First, the influence of dielectrophoretic (DEP) forces created on a membrane surface to levitate...

Abstract: Sponges (Porifera) are abundant in most marine and freshwater ecosystems and as suspension feeders they play a crucial role in filtering the water column. Their active pumping enables them to filter up to 900 times their body volume of water per hour, recycling nutrients and coupling a...
Effect of Cellulose Nanocrystal Particles on Rheology, Transport and Mechanical Properties of Oil Well Cement SystemsDownload
The increase in oil consumption during the past few decades, coupled with oil/gas extraction from shale in the recent years has increased drilling and cementing demands. Well cementing operation is one of the most crucial and important steps in any well completion. However, since it takes place...
Evaluating the transport and removal of coated microspheres as Cryptosporidium surrogates in drinking water filtrationDownload
A glycopolymer-modified microsphere surrogate for Cryptosporidium was developed, characterized, and used in filtration experiments. Several surrogates were investigated (yeast, unmodified microspheres, glycoprotein-modified microspheres), and then compared to Cryptosporidium oocysts....
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....
Geodia barretti - Energy budget data sheet for Limnology and Oceanography
Geodia barretti is a massive nearly spherical sponge that forms dense assemblages on the continental shelf of the North Altantic and the Norwegian Sea. We studied the metabolism of individual sponges collected using a remotely operated vehicle and maintained in large tanks with high volumes of...
Organically-Modified Clay Minerals in Oil Sands: Characterization and Effect of Hydrothermal TreatmentDownload
The intimate association between bitumen components and clay minerals is an important feature of oil sands fine solids. These organically-modified clay minerals cause serious problems in Canadian oil sands production: hindering bitumen extraction, stabilizing water-in-bitumen emulsions, fouling...
