Carbohydrate-Modified Microgels as a System for Extracting Naphthenic Acids from Tailings Pond WaterDownload
Northern Alberta houses massive tailings ponds, that store aqueous waste as a result of the processes employed to recover bitumen from the oil sand deposits. The aqueous waste, or tailings pond water (TPW), houses numerous toxic chemicals including naphthenic acids (NAs) - a complex group of...
Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide) microgel-based etalons and etalon arrays for determining the molecular weight of polymers in solutionDownload
Positively and/or negatively charged poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)-based microgels were deposited on a single substrate and isolated regions of Au overlayers were deposited on top of the microgels. Each spatially isolated Au overlayer region had a different thickness to make an etalon array. We...
