The interfacial tensions between methane and aqueous solutions of different contents of VC-713 (a terpolymer of N-vinylpyrrolidone, N-vinylcaprolactam, and dimethylamino-ethyl-methacrylate) were measured at different temperatures and pressures in the hydrate formation region. The surface adsorption free energies of methane were calculated accordingly in(More)
The kinetics of film growth of hydrates of methane, ethane, and methane-ethane mixtures were studied by exposing a single gas bubble to water. The morphologies, lateral growth rates, and thicknesses of the hydrate films were measured for various gas compositions and degrees of subcooling. A variety of hydrate film textures was revealed. The kinetics of(More)
Solubility data of methane in aqueous solutions of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) with different concentrations were measured at ambient temperature and near hydrate conditions. The critical micelle concentration (CMC) and the number of methane molecules dissolved in each micelle of the methane + water + SDS system were calculated and compared with those of(More)
Natural gas hydrates are cage-like crystalline compounds in which a large amount of methane is trapped within a crystal structure of water, forming solids at low temperature and high pressure. Natural gas hydrates are widely distributed in permafrost regions and offshore. It is estimated that the worldwide amounts of methane bound in gas hydrates are total(More)
The solubility of ethylene in aqueous solutions of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) at different concentrations was measured at temperature 298.2 K and near the hydrate formation region. The effect of SDS on the gas solubility was studied and the solubilities of ethylene in a single micelle under different conditions were evaluated. It was found that the(More)
The interfacial tensions between ethylene and an aqueous solution of SDS were measured using the pendant-drop method at 274.2 and 278.2 K and in the pressure range from 0.1 to 3.1 MPa, including hydrate formation points. The concentrations of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) aqueous solution were 0, 100, 300, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, and 1000 ppm. The effects(More)
The hydrate structure type and dissociation behavior for pure methane and methane-ethane hydrates at temperatures below the ice point and atmospheric pressure were investigated using in situ Raman spectroscopic analysis. The self-preservation effect of sI methane hydrate is significant at lower temperatures (268.15 to 270.15 K), as determined by the stable(More)
Hydrate formation/dissociation of natural gas in (diesel oil + water) emulsion systems containing 3 wt% anti-agglomerant were performed for five water cuts: 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 vol%. The natural gas solubilities in the emulsion systems were also examined. The experimental results showed that the solubility of natural gas in emulsion systems increases(More)
ZIF-67(zinc-methylimidazolate framework-67), one of the zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs), was used for the removal of phenol from aqueous solutions via adsorption and shows high adsorption capacity for phenol. The thermodynamic and kinetic adsorption behavior of ZIF-67 for phenol in water with concentration ranging from 50 to 300 ppm were investigated(More)
