Monte Carlo and molecular dynamics simulations have been used in order to test the ability of a three center intermolecular potential for carbon dioxide to reproduce literature experimental thermophysical values. In particular, both the shear viscosity under supercritical conditions and along the phase coexistence line, as well as the thermal conductivity(More)
A new potential model for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons has been developed on the basis of a charged anisotropic united atoms (AUA) potential with six AUA force centers and three electrostatic point charges per aromatic ring. Using quantum mechanical calculations, quadrupolar moments of several aromatic molecules were computed and a correlation has been(More)
The design of innovative combustion processes relies on a comprehensive understanding of biodiesel oxidation kinetics. The present study aims at unraveling the reaction mechanism involved in the epoxidation of a realistic biodiesel surrogate, methyl trans-3-hexenoate, by hydroperoxy radicals using a bottom-up theoretical kinetics methodology. The obtained(More)
In this paper, we extend the work of Popelier and Logothetis [J. Organomet. Chem. 1998, 555, 101] on the characterization of agosticity by considerably enlarging the set of the studied organometallic molecules. To this aim, 23 representative complexes have been considered, including all first line transition metals at various oxidation states and exhibiting(More)
The effect of confinement within some zeolitic structures on the activity and selectivity of metallocene catalysts for the ethylene oligomerization has been investigated using grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations (GCMC). The following zeolite (host) frameworks displaying different pore sizes, have been studied as solid hosts: mazzite (MAZ), AIPO-8 (AET),(More)
