Thick, unmetamorphosed successions of siliciclastic and carbonate rocks in eastern and western Siberia preserve a record of Middle Riphean to Early Upper Riphean sedimentary environments and geochemistry. Consistent with data from other continents, our studies in the Uchur–Maya region in southeastern Siberia and the Turukhansk Uplift in northwestern Siberia(More)
The Mesoproterozoic Dismal Lakes Group, arctic Canada, contains a relatively thin, yet regionally extensive stromatolitic reef complex that developed subtidally during a major transgression, shoaled to sea level, and was overlain by intertidal to supratidal carbonate and evaporite strata. The September Lake reef complex exhibits a complex internal(More)
Offshore facies of the Mesoproterozoic Sulky Formation, Dismal Lakes Group, arctic Canada, preserve microbialites with unusual morphology. These microbialites grew in water depths greater than several tens of meters and correlate with high-relief conical stromatolites of the more proximal September Lake reef complex. The gross morphology of these microbial(More)
to study the effect of light hydrocarbons (n-C 5 to n-C 10) on the effective diffusivity of reactants in solid catalyst during the conversion of waste vegetable oils (WVO) into biodiesels in presence of methanol. The WVO was simulated as a mixture of triolein and oleic acid. The results suggest that light hydrocarbons significantly lower the reaction medium(More)
A new preparative route for vanadium phosphate catalysts is described using supercritical CO2 as an antisolvent. The amorphous microspheroidal VPO produced is shown to be more active than comparable crystalline VPO catalysts for the selective oxidation of n-butane to maleic anhydride and, furthermore, does not require an extensive pre-treatment or(More)
