Review on the Use of Ionic Liquids (ILs) as Alternative Fluids for CO2 Capture and Natural Gas Sweetening
( American Chemical Society , 2010 , Article)
The capture of CO2 from flue gases derived from fossil-fueled power plants and the absorption of CO2/H2S for natural gas sweetening purposes are two relevant industrial problems closely related to very important environmental, ...
Second law analysis of compressible flow through a diffuser subjected to constant wall temperature
( Inderscience , 2010 , Article)
This study presents the investigation of entropy generation in compressible turbulent flow of air through a diffuser. Constant temperature boundary condition is applied at the wall. Two-dimensional solution of velocity and ...
Photocatalytic removal of phenol from refinery wastewater: Catalytic activity of Cu-doped titanium dioxide
( Elsevier Ltd , 2015 , Article)
A series of Cu-doped TiO2 catalysts were prepared by a sol-gel method and the effect of various synthesis parameters, including solvent type; solvent/catalyst amount; amount of water; catalyst type/amount; and acid type, ...
Adhesion Improvement Between Polyethylene and Aluminum Using Eco-Friendly Plasma Treatment
( John Wiley & Sons, Inc. , 2015 , Book chapter)
Cleaning of ceramic membranes for produced water filtration
( Elsevier , 2018 , Article)
© 2018 Elsevier B.V. The application of ceramic microfiltration membranes to the tertiary treatment of produced water from an Arabian Gulf oilfield has been studied using a dedicated pilot plant. Studies were based on a ...
Ionic Liquids in Bulk and at an Interface
( John Wiley & Sons, Inc , 2015 , Book chapter)
In the present chapter, we describe different types of investigation carried out by research groups based at CQE/IST/UTL and ITQB/UNL and their ramifications in terms of surface science. Most of the work is focused on the ...
Properties of Dialkylcarbonate + 1-Alkanol Mixtures at the Vacuum Interface
( American Chemical Society , 2016 , Article)
The properties of solutions formed by dialkylcarbonate + 1-alkanol solutions are studied using classic molecular dynamics simulations. The effects of solution composition, temperature, and dialkylcarbonate type have been ...
Advances in Tailoring Resorcinol-Formaldehyde Organic and Carbon Gels
( WILEY-VCH Verlag , 2011 , Article)
An overview on the preparation and properties of resorcinol-formaldehyde (RF) organic and carbon gels reveals the fascinating and remarkably flexible properties of RF carbon and organic gels and how these properties are ...
Insights into Tris-(2-Hydroxylethyl)methylammonium Methylsulfate Aqueous Solutions
( WILEY-VCH Verlag , 2012 , Article)
We report herein a combined experimental–computational study on tris-(2-hydroxylethyl)methylammonium methylsulfate in water solutions, as a representative ionic liquid of the aqueous-solution behavior of hydroxylammonium-based ...
Mathematical model for predicting sludge accumulation in septic tanks based on operational parameters: effect of hydraulic mixing
( John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. , 2015 , Article)
Reporting sludge accumulation in septic tanks as a constant rate is no longer accepted, and there is a need for a model that predicts sludge accumulation in septic tanks taking into consideration the continuous consumption ...
