The multisolute osmotic virial equation is the only multisolute thermodynamic solution theory that has been derived from first principles and can make predictions of multisolute solution behaviour in the absence of multisolute solution data. Other solution theories either (i) include simplifying...
Heavy oils are nano-colloids comprising a continuous maltene-rich liquid phase and a nano-dispersed asphaltene-rich phase separable by filtration that are macroscopically homogeneous. The asphaltene-rich phase can aggregate and deposit, causing technological risk and process operation challenges...
Phase behaviour information is essential for the development and optimization of hydrocarbon resource production, transport and refining technologies. Experimental data sets for mixtures containing heavy oil and bitumen are sparse as phase behaviour data are difficult to obtain and cost remains...
THE INTERACTION BETWEEN DEPLETION FLOCCULATION AND MOLECULAR LIQUID-LIQUID PHASE SEPARATION MECHANISMSDownload
There is growing interest in the formulation and application of nano colloids + non-adsorbing polymer in fields of nanomedicine, hydrocarbon production, and environmental science. Successful applications rely on a detailed understanding of the related fluid thermophysical and thermochemical...
Thermodynamic Investigation of the Effect of Interface Curvature on Solid-Liquid Equilibrium and Its Application to Zinc-Air Battery Electrolyte at Low TemperatureDownload
Micro and nanoscale confinements and local curvatures, which are ubiquitous in natural and man-made materials and systems, cause significant impact on thermodynamic phase behavior. This effect has been extensively studied for single component solid's liquid phase transitions, but rarely for...
