Infrared spectroscopy of clathrate hydrates for planetary science: the ethylene case
Hydrocarbons are observed in the gas or solid phases of solar system objects, including comets, Trans-Neptunian Objects, planets and their moons. In the presence of water ice in these environments,
Molecular Selectivity of CH4–C2H6 Mixed Hydrates: A GCMC Study
In this paper, we report the first grand canonical Monte Carlo simulation study aiming at characterizing the competitive trapping of CH4 and C2H6 molecules into clathrate hydrates under temperature


Methane clathrate hydrate FTIR spectrum - Implications for its cometary and planetary detection
Context. The physical behaviour of methane clathrate hydrate, a crystallographic ice crystal is of major importance for both the earth and the stability of gases in many astrophysical bodies
Rapid Formation of Clathrate Hydrate From Liquid Ethane and Water Ice on Titan
Liquid ethane is present in the lakes and seas observed on Titan's surface by the Cassini‐Huygens mission. While interaction between liquid hydrocarbons and water ice is expected to result in the
Carbon dioxide clathrate hydrate FTIR spectrum. Near infrared combination modes for astrophysical re
Context. Clathrate hydrates could provide a sink for highly volatile molecules, thus modifying the release and chemical cycling time scales for gases in icy bodies in the solar system (planets,
Saturn’s largest satellite, Titan, has a thick atmosphere dominated by nitrogen and methane. The dense orange-brown smog hiding the satellite’s surface is produced by photochemical reactions of
Hydrogen, Hydrocarbons, and Habitability Across the Solar System
The ingredients to make an environment habitable (e.g., liquid water, chemical disequilibria, and organic molecules) are found throughout the solar system. Liquid water has existed transiently on
Methane clathrate hydrate infrared spectrum II. Near-infrared overtones, combination modes and cages assignments
Context. Recently, we recorded the infrared spectrum of the methane clathrate hydrate stretching mode at low temperature, a caged compound of possible interest for solar system studies as well as
The Insulating Effect of Methane Clathrate Crust on Titan's Thermal Evolution
Saturn's largest moon Titan is unique for its dense, methane‐rich atmosphere, with ongoing complex organics chemistry, and the hydrocarbon lakes and seas on its frigid surface. Titan also harbors a
