Heavy metal contamination in water is a serious risk to the public health and other life forms on earth. Current research in nanotechnology is developing new nanosystems and nanomaterials for the fast and efficient removal of pollutants and heavy metals from water. Here, we report graphene oxide-based microbots (GOx-microbots) as active self-propelled(More)
A three-phase fixed-bed reactor for selective hydrogenation of butadiene in liquid phase with toluene as solvent is modeled using published kinetics. Thermodynamic and transport properties are estimated from models and correlations available in the literature. The model incorporates momentum and energy balances and mass transfer resistances. The results(More)
