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...
Fischer—Tropsch gas loops have been in use for nearly a century, producing synthetic fuels and petrochemicals. Yet there still remain many opportunities to expand its uses, update the gas loop with new technology, as well as better understand at a fundamental level the way the products behave....
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...
Developing High Precision Heat Capacity Correlations for Organic Solids and Liquids - Extending to Biofuels and SugarsDownload
There is a great need for easily accessible and accurate physical property data in the heavy oil industry, the pharmaceutical industry, and other heavy molecule guided productions. In recent years, high precision predictive correlations for isobaric heat capacities of heavy and ill-defined...
This brief manuscript introduces the subject of thermodynamics and the papers of the special issue on thermodynamic aspects of cryobiology. Thermodynamic terminology is defined for the non-specialist.
Investigation of the Adsorption of Model and Oil Sands Process-Affected Water Naphthenic Acids on GraphiteDownload
Naphthenic acids (NAs) are constituents of bitumen in the oil sands deposits in northern Alberta, Canada. The extraction process of bitumen creates an enormous amount of wastewater called oil sands process affected waters (OSPW). This OSPW contains elevated concentrations of NAs, and other...
Oil sands bitumen is increasingly recovered by injecting steam into reservoirs using the energy intensive Steam assisted gravity drainage (SAGD) process. Interest in improving recovery and energy efficiencies have led to an interest in injecting light hydrocarbons along with or instead of steam...
The spontaneous assembly of polypeptides through non-covalent interactions at physiological conditions is the main focus of the presented work and will be discussed from two different perspectives: (i) the interaction of peptide chains with themselves leading to formation of higher order...
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...
